Founded in 2013, The BDS Agency, LLC is a nationally respected industry leader specializing in advising, marketing, and representing college basketball coaches to assist them in further 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 pursuit support, interview preparation, and contract negotiations. The BDS Agency is based in Mountain Top, Pennsylvania, and is led by Founder and President Brian D. Stanchak.
In addition to his nine years leading The BDS Agency, Brian possesses 15 years of combined experience as a college Director of Athletics and Division I basketball coach. While an AD, Brian was advising numerous coach friends on managing difficult situations with their administration, preparing for head coach interviews, 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 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 women’s college basketball coaches.
The BDS Agency is a boutique agency 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 by the numbers:
- 62 clients have obtained a first-time or new Division I Head Coach position
- 120+ extensions or renegotiations to Division I Head Coach client contracts
- Negotiated over $200 million in client employment contracts
