Brian is a proven-winner. He is a giant in the business, and I would have never trusted anyone else to handle my affairs. He is passionate, trustworthy, and has a great work ethic. He will not only work until it is done, he will work until it is done right.

Vanessa Blair-Lewis, Head Coach, Bethune-Cookman University

Coming from someone who has already had an agent, the way you run your agency is amazingly professional, thorough, and FIRST-CLASS! I knew this was one of the best career moves I have ever made by joining The BDS Agency and you keep proving me right. Honestly the BEST thing about you and your agency, in my opinion, is your availability and constant open lines of communication. You make all of your clients feel like they are your number one client.

David Caputo, Head Coach, Delaware State University

From the first day I met Brian over 12 years ago, he has been authentic and genuine. I know that I can trust him with anything and that he will always be there for me. As my agent for the past five years, he has pushed me to improve myself every year, mentored and prepared me through different coaching searches, and now has been an incredible resource for navigating my first few months as a Head Coach. Brian truly puts his clients first, and I am very grateful to have him on my team!

Gayle Coats-Fulks, Head Coach, Davidson College

Brian is a tremendous agent and I am so grateful to have him by my side and representing my career. His experience, knowledge, professionalism and support are great, but what makes him special is his passion and caring heart to want to see you succeed not only in your professional career but as a person! I always look forward to his text messages following a game, win or lose! He puts the personal touch in everything he does. I am grateful to have him represent me daily!

Kacie Cryer, Head Coach, McNeese State University

In a college basketball landscape that is ever changing and moving, Brian was an easy decision to represent me as I moved from an assistant to Head Coach. He was able to not only get me involved with jobs, but also seamlessly executed negotiations with my contract. Brian has been first-class from day one, and I couldn’t be more excited to have him on my team moving forward.

Megan Duffy, Head Coach, Marquette University

Since the first time Brian and I spoke, I could tell what kind of man he was and what he stood for. Everything that I believe in was in line with his vision for his agency and his clients.

He has been a blessing to my career and my family, and I know I’m in great hands.

Angel Elderkin, Head Coach, Appalachian State University

I met Brian over 17 years ago when he worked for the men’s basketball program at Seton Hall, and the one thing that was evident then, and is even more true today, is his incredible work ethic and passion for his job. If you are looking for an agent that truly cares about his clients and their dreams and aspirations, there is no one better than Brian. I am blessed to have him in my corner and to have had him walk through this transition from assistant to Head Coach.

Brian’s personal touch and sincere relationship building were the difference in the decision-making process for me in regard to representation. I was extremely impressed with his attention to detail, the collection of data, and knowledge of the contract negotiation process. Most importantly, he has a genuine care for my family, program, and myself.

Jose Fernandez, Head Coach, University of South Florida

People often ask me why I need an agent. It’s easy explaining the benefits being part of Brian’s team brings. I believe you see people for who they really are in two situations, when you are at your lowest and when they can’t benefit in any way from being there or helping you. Brian was there for me consistently during the toughest time of my coaching career and also during so many times that he’s just been a great source of advice and support. I’ve always believed you win with people and with Brian, that’s most definitely the case.

Donna Finnie, Head Coach, Houston Baptist University

Brian’s work ethic and passion speaks for itself, but the thing that made the difference for me was how genuine and sincere he has been with the development of our relationship.

Heather Oesterle , Head Coach, Central Michigan University

Brian is the best in the business hands down! He was amazing through the negotiations and beyond. I could always count on a positive message from him in a very challenging/building year after every game. Brian is not that agent that gets you a deal, gets a paycheck and is on to the next. He is genuine about each and every client, always checking in on you. He is the epitome of excellence and the leading expert at his craft!

Misty Opat, Head Coach, Chicago State University

Brian and I have been friends for many years and when I decided that I wanted to pursue my dream of becoming a Head Coach at the Division I level, it was a no-brainer to join the BDS team. Along with his tireless work ethic, Brian’s insight, having been a basketball coach and an Athletic Director, separates him from the others. I’m happy for Brian that his dream has come true with BDS, as well as by helping coaches like myself attain our lifelong goals.

Jada Pierce, Head Coach, Niagara University

Whatever you need, Brian is there! His background allows him to have such a broad skill set. He’s able to gather analytical information. He’s a great resource to bounce ideas off of. He’ll become one of your biggest fans personally and professionally, and most importantly, he’ll become a great friend! I don’t know how he is able to multi-task as well as he does, but the bottom line is that he gets it all done and it’s done extremely well!

Dawn Plitzuweit, Head Coach, University of South Dakota

My initial perception of having of professional representation for my career advancement was that it was a wasted investment and that I couldn’t really gain anything from it. Since then, I have changed my thoughts, and it is because of Brian and The BDS Agency. I have gained so much knowledge and understanding of how people think and operate in our professional realm. Brian has been dead on in all of his advisement and understands my expectations for my career. His support gives me confidence every day that my hard work will not go unnoticed or unappreciated. With all that being said, Brian is also someone who genuinely cares about my future. This is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Tarrell Robinson, Head Coach, North Carolina A&T State University

When I started to work with Brian, it was the best thing for my career. He was able to help me get in front of AD’s and administrators. He gave me information on each job that I wouldn’t have been able to get myself. Once I landed my head coaching position, he was huge in negotiating my contract and making sure that the language in the contract was good for me. If you are looking for someone to represent you, I would give Brian a call. He works hard for you and does a great job.

Bernard Scott, Head Coach, University of Detroit Mercy
Brian came in highly recommended but I knew I had to represent what he stands for as well. Coming from an Assistant Coach to a Head Coach position, it was imperative I had the guidance from the best of the best and I believe Brian is just that person. Brian’s knowledge, communication skills and ability to negotiate are second to none. I’m not sure what I would have done without his representation. He plays an integral role in my development as a Head Coach and I can now see how big of a help Brian and his agency are beyond contract negotiations. He is very accessible and always willing to look into anything I throw at him. His passion, work ethic and willingness to help are second to none!
