Millennial Sports Group was formed in 2015 by Josh Delander to represent NCAA basketball coaches in job searches and contract negotiations. In 2018, Josh represented 7 sitting Division One Head Basketball Coaches, 1 Divison Two Head Coach, and a handful of assistants across men's and women's basketball and baseball. Over $8,000,000 in total contracts negotiated and part of 30+ coaching searches.
In late 2019 it became apparent that Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) changes were coming to college sports. Since then, Josh has worked with the two leading companies in NIL, Opendorse and INFLCR. Now considered an NIL thought-leader, Josh has hosted webinars for Hashtag Sports and spoken to athletic departments and teams on how to understand and maximize the opportunities NIL presents.

I always knew I wanted to work in sports, but had no idea what that would be. I graduated with degrees in sports management and business law - thinking I'd be the next Jerry Maguire (who didn't?). That changed after an internship and eventually a job at the IMG Sports Academy, where I was on the court coaching and training high school, college, and pro basketball players. From there I worked on the coaching staffs at Kilgore College and Florida Atlantic University. Knowing coaching wasn't the career path for me, I joined a boutique sports agency in Fort Lauderdale where I eventually represented Olympic Athletics, MMA fighters, and world-record holders. Learning and growing under a great entrepreneur gave me the confidence to successfully launch Millennial Sports Group, focused on taking advantage of the gaps and trends in college sports.
