Welcome To The BDS Agency

Founded in 2013, The BDS Agency, LLC specializes in advising, marketing, and representing college 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 a boutique agency based in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and led by Founder and President Brian D. Stanchak.

Brian possePicture1sses 15 years of combined experience as a collegiate Director of Athletics and Division I basketball coach. While an collegiate Director of Athletics, Brian was advising several coaching friends on managing situations with their administration,  interview preparation, and contract negotiations. After many of these coaches were having success in advancing their careers and enhancing their contracts, Brian saw that there was a need for an agent who prioritized women’s basketball coaches at all levels and realized that his first-hand knowledge of the inner-workings of both industries was a valuable asset to coaches. Brian also knew having the experience of having conducted coaching searches and negotiated coaches’ contracts himself would provide a uniquely advantageous expertise to clients that no other agent in the industry possessed.

The BDS Agency is dedicated to providing innovative, detail-oriented, and coach-specific management to each of our clients, while forming long-term relationships with our clients and their families. Understanding the life and demands of an college basketball coach, Brian focuses on providing a service to coaches that he would have wanted himself as a coach.
