Noah & Josephus Lyles Turn Pro, Sign With adidas

Noah Lyles talks going pro after winning the gold medal with the Team USA 4x100m.

UPDATE 9:05PM CT: According to The Washington Post, the Lyles brothers have signed an eight year deal with adidas. adidas, who recently signed fellow Virginian high schooler Drew Hunter, has agreed to pay for the brothers' education and provide a chaperone at events until they turn 21. Noah is 19, while Josephus turned 18 today.

The Lyles are represented by Global Athletics & Marketing, Inc., who also signed Candace Hill out of high school this past fall.

"I told them that I would be more comfortable if they did it the traditional way, going to school on a track scholarship but promised them I would research what was available," their mother Keisha Caine told Rick Maese. "We researched and had countless meetings. And now they get to do what they love to do, earn an income and still go to school."

Where the brothers will attend school and train has not yet been disclosed.
