UNM To Partner with NOCAP as NIL Platform for Student-Athletes
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The University of New Mexico has announced a partnership with NOCAP Sports, a comprehensive, open Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) platform. NOCAP’s proprietary software will allow Lobo student-athletes to best prepare and move forward when the state of New Mexico’s NIL legislative changes go into effect July 1 (Senate Bill 94).
NOCAP’s Chief Executive Officer, Nicholas Lord, shared “New Mexico’s bill going into effect July 1 puts the Lobos at the forefront of the name, image and likeness movement. New Mexico’s forward-thinking athletic department realized that NOCAP’s comprehensive, open platform was the best option to ensure their student-athletes have the cutting-edge technology and resources necessary to compliantly succeed in the NIL era.”
The state of New Mexico’s Senate Bill 94, sponsored by former Lobo student-athlete Mark Moores, Bill O’Neill and Antonio “Moe” Maestas, will allow for student-athletes to earn revenue from their names, images and likeness. New Mexico will be the first state in the nation to have an NIL bill go into effect.
NOCAP is not contracting with any schools so when the NIL legislation passes, UNM student-athletes will be able to utilize the NOCAP platform and all its features.
- Ability to engage with fans and brands to monetize a diverse set of NIL opportunities.
- Automate NCAA and university compliance rules to proactively protect every student-athletes’ eligibility.
- Access to NOCAP’s all-inclusive education portal for NIL success.

We are eager to help all of college athletics with our automated monitoring system that eliminates the compliance burden for every school with full transparency, documentation, and reporting,” said Casey Floyd, NOCAP Chief Compliance Officer and former Director of Compliance at the University of Michigan.
“We are proud to partner with NOCAP, and we are proud to be leaders in this emerging time for student-athletes,” said Director of Athletics Eddie Nuñez said. “One of our core missions is to prepare our student-athletes for success on and off the field and becoming a leader in NIL landscape and giving our student-athletes the best chance to succeed in this new space is very important.”
