NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Reggie Bush has fired marketing agent Mike Ornstein.
The New Orleans running back declined to comment after practice on Thursday, but Ornstein, who is based in Los Angeles, said in a phone interview with The Associated Press that he was no longer working for Bush.
``We had a great run together,'' Ornstein said. ``Reggie's a special, special guy. The most special I've ever been around in my 20-plus years in sports. We'll remain great friends.''
Bush's assortment of endorsements includes deals with Subway, Hummer, PepsiCo, Adidas, Visa, EA Sports, Gameloft, GoldToe socks, GTSM Memorabilia, Schutt Sports and Halcyon Jets.
Ornstein became a regular at Saints training camp and games after New Orleans selected Bush in the 2006 draft. He said he still planned to attend this Sunday's Saints home game against St. Louis.
He did not go into detail about what prompted his split with Bush, which was reported on the Sports Business Daily's Web site on Thursday.
``I worked for him. He didn't work for me. He makes decisions about how he wants to run his business,'' Ornstein said. ``Luckily, we leave each other still being great friends. I'm still a huge Saints fan.''
