Chris Thompson Named Assistant Basketball Coach at Stevens Institute of Technology

The Stevens Institute of Technology men’s basketball program has announced Chris Thompson as its new assistant coach for the 2016-17 season.

Thompson comes from Stevens after a season on the staff of fellow Empire 8 institution Elmira College.

“I am happy to welcome Chris to the program,  he’s a high character, high energy type of coach that will help our student-athletes immediately,” head coach Bobby Hurley said. ” Chris’ experiences and knowledge will have a great impact on our program, and I look forward to working alongside him.”

Thompson was involved with all aspects of the program at Elmira including recruiting, game preparation and administrative duties, serving as a crucial part of the Soaring Eagles staff. The 2011 grad directed the team’s film exchange program, and served a major role with in-game adjustments.

Prior to that stint, Thompson served as an assistant on the staff at St. John Fisher for two season where he helped lead the Cardinals to a 25-win campaign in 2014-15 that included an NCAA Sweet 16 appearance. Thompson has also coached for Clayton A. Bouton High School, and at SUNY Plattsburgh as a student assistant while completing his undergraduate degree.
