Report: Raiders’ coach, supplements firm cut ties

The Associated Press

ThePostGame.com is reporting that the NFL ordered new Oakland Raiders coach Hue Jackson to sever ties to a supplements company that sells a product containing a banned substance.

The website for Sports With Alternatives To Steroids says “The Ultimate Spray” includes IGF-1, a byproduct of human growth hormone that is banned by the NFL. According to ThePostGame.com’s report on Wednesday, Jackson began endorsing the company when he was an assistant with the Baltimore Ravens from 2008 to 2009, and ended his connection to SWATS this month.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy tells ThePostGame.com that the league “prohibits coaches from any relationship with a supplement company” and Jackson is now in compliance.

Jackson says he is no longer affiliated with the company.
