“We have long admired Bret for the business he has built. There is simply no one with his reputation, level of relationships and caliber of clients in the basketball coaching and front office executive space,” said a statement Friday from WME’s heads of sports talent Jordan Bazant and Karen Brodkin. “As we look to continue to expand our coaching business, Bret will be an important part of its growth, and we look forward to the experience and insights Bret will bring to our colleagues and clients.”
