Zack Thomsen is in his fourth year at the helm of the SUNY Delhi men's basketball squad for the 2018-19 season. While Coach Thomsen is the latest in a long line of prominent men's basketball head coaches at SUNY Delhi, he holds the distinction of being the program's sole coach since it transitioned to four-year athletics, as well as its transition to NCAA Division III. His Broncos are poised this season to make a run for the USCAA and ACAA Tournament.

In his rookie season, the South Berlin, NY native guided the Broncos to a 17-13 record. While his 2016-17 squad posted a 13-17 mark, Thomsen coached the program's first four-year All-American in David Haye, who earned USCAA Second Team accolades. The 2017-18 team improved to a 15-15 record, and reached the NIAC Tournament. The Broncos had several memorable wins during Thomsen's third year, including an upset of Berkeley on Nov. 19, 2017, snapping the three-time defending national champions' 56-game winning streak. Jordan Fragale received USCAA All-American Honorable Mention to become Thomsen's second All-American.

Thomsen came to SUNY Delhi from Shepherd University in West Virginia, where he served as assistant men's basketball coach for the 2014-15 campaign. He began his coaching career at Onondaga Community College from 2010 to 2012. Thomsen then became an assistant coach at Le Moyne College from 2012 to 2014, and helped lead the Dolphins to a 17-12 record in 2013-14 and a NCAA Division II Tournament berth.

He holds a master's degree from Le Moyne College '14 and bachelor's degree from West Virginia University Institute of Technology '10. At WVU Tech, Thomsen was a team captain his senior year and earned Mid-South Academic All-Conference honors. Thomsen played high school basketball at Unadilla Valley Central School in New Berlin.
