Jeff Vinik's ties to the University of South Florida continue to get stronger, as a Muma College of Business program now bears his family's name.

The Vinik Sport and Entertainment Management Program was started five years ago with the Tampa Bay Lightning owner's assistance. Since then, USF officials say he and his wife, Penny, have contributed more than $6 million to the graduate-level initiative.
