Lance Thompson enters his fourth year overseeing the program he began in 2016 after an accomplished collegiate coaching career spanning 17 years at six colleges.  Before arriving at Grand Canyon University, Thompson spent the previous three seasons serving as head coach at NCAA Division II University of Hawaii-Hilo.  Thompson has compiled a 135-85-23 overall record in 13 seasons as a head coach at four different schools, with four of those teams reaching the postseason.

Thompson began his coaching career at NAIA Alliant International University in San Diego, California, spending five seasons as head coach (1999-2003), and compiling a 57-32-3 record during that time.  Thompson’s AIU teams reached the NAIA playoffs twice, and were ranked in the top 25 in both 2001 (No. 25) and 2003 (No. 7).

Thompson then made a shift in his athletic career and began coaching at Holy Names University, based in Oakland, California, winning a total of 20 games during his two seasons (2004-2005).  His 2004 squad earned an NAIA tournament berth. He also served as the university’s athletic director. He was the director of soccer at NCAA Division II Notre Dame de Namur, and led the 2008 Argonauts to a 14-3-3 record and the Pacific West Conference championship.  Thompson also spent three seasons at Cal Poly Pomona before coaching at NCAA Division II Cal State San Bernardino for the 2012 season.

Thompson is from Bel Air, Maryland, and graduated from Frostburg State University in 1995. He and his wife, Jennifer, reside in Peoria, and have three beautiful children – their son, Tyler, and daughters Kailey and Kiana.
