Founded in 2013, The BDS Agency, LLC is a boutique agency that has grown into a nationally respected industry leader. The BDS Agency focuses on advising, marketing, and representing collegiate women’s basketball coaches to assist them in maximizing and protecting all aspects of their careers. The BDS Agency takes some of the off-the-court pressure away from our clients through career counsel, professional development, marketing, job placement support, interview preparation, and contract negotiations. The BDS Agency is based in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and led by Founder and President Brian D. Stanchak.

In addition to his five years leading The BDS Agency, Brian possesses 15 years of combined experience as an collegiate Director of Athletics and NCAA Division I basketball coach. As a collegiate AD, Brian was advising numerous coaching friends on managing difficult situations with their administration, preparing for an interview, and contract negotiations. After several of these coaches had success in advancing their careers and enhancing their contracts, Brian saw that his firsthand knowledge of the inner-workings of both industries was a valuable asset and provided a uniquely advantageous expertise to coaches that no other agent in the industry possessed, while also recognizing that there was a need for an agent who prioritized collegiate women’s basketball coaches.

The BDS Agency is dedicated to providing individualized and innovative management to each client, while forming long-term relationships with them and their families. Understanding the life and demands of a Division I basketball coach himself, Brian focuses on providing a service to coaches that he would have wanted as a coach.

Since 2014, The BDS Agency has represented

  • 33 clients who obtained a first-time or new DI Head Coach position
  • 9 clients who obtained a first-time or new DII/III Head Coach position
  • 30+ DI Head Coach clients whose contracts were extended and/or renegotiated
