Sports teams have marketing, sales, and administrative staffs, and it can be a great atmosphere to work in. But because sports is so visible and appealing, those jobs can be low-paying (plenty of labor supply to meet the demand). There are also agents for players, lawyers, facilities management, merchandising (e.g. selling jerseys), business managers, nutritionists, trainers, sports psychologists, statisticians, and the list goes on. There are degrees in sports management, I think, but a good way to start is to try to get some exposure to an organization as an intern. Make sure to talk to lots of people and ask them about their jobs, and what kind of options are available. I know a couple of people in the field, if you send me your email, I could respond with more detail.
