Thompson joins Wabash College Basketball Staff

Liam Thompson joins the Wabash College basketball coaching staff as an assistant coach after serving two seasons as a graduate assistant at Illinois Wesleyan University.
Thompson worked as the head junior varsity coach of the Titans and performed duties as the strength and conditioning coach. He helped guide IWU to a 19-8 overall record and a 14-2 College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) record. The Titans claimed the CCIW regular season title and defeated North Central College in the semifinal round of the CCIW Men’s Basketball Tournament.
“Coach Thompson’s passion for coaching, recruiting, and relationship building was evident in our very first conversation.” Wabash head coach Kyle Brumett said. “He has great experiences as a student, a basketball player, and a Division III coach. That was very important to me as I worked to build a staff of coaches who will impact our current and future Wabash men daily.”
Thompson played basketball at Elizabethtown College, majoring in political science and graduating in 2021. He served as team captain as a senior. Thompson earned a master’s degree in sport management from Illinois State University in 2024. He served one season as a men’s varsity assistant coach at Jack M. Barrack Academy in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.
“When you think of Wabash, you think of high-level basketball,” Thompson said. “I got a taste of that during my time at Illinois Wesleyan. With what Coach Brumett has built here and the sustained success the program has enjoyed, it is a perfect place for me to continue developing as a coach. I want to build relationships with our players, other coaches and staff in the athletics department, and the Wabash community as a whole.”
Thompson begins his duties immediately.
