Head Coach Jim Thomas recaps the first weekend of the 2014 Boise State Women's Soccer season as well as looks forward to the upcoming matches against Utah (Friday, August 29th) and Utah Valley (Sunday, August 31st.)

Jim Thomas enters his second year at the helm of Bronco soccer after spending five years as an assistant at Washington.

Thomas led Boise State to a 13-7-3 overall record and the most conference wins (six) in the history of the program, all in his head coaching debut (2013). The team earned its first 13-win season since 2009, and marked the third season the team finished with more than 10 wins.

In 2013, the Broncos led the conference in goals with 33 in 23 games, as well as goals against average (0.78). WIth their attacking style of play and solid defense, Boise State went undefeated against Pac-12 schools in 2013, having never accomplished the feat in the history of the program.

Under his tutelage, the Broncos in 2013 garnered four all-conference honors, three all-tournament players and eight all-academic awards.

Thomas helped Washington to a 50-28-11 record since 2008, turning the program around after the Huskies went 12-43-5 during the three years prior to his arrival. During his five seasons in Seattle, Washington made four NCAA Tournament appearances including a run to the Elite Eight in 2010. Thomas' duties with the program included the coordination of recruiting some of the nation's elite youth talent as well as leading on-field training sessions.

Thomas has seen success at various levels in the soccer arena, spending time as head coach at the community college, high school and club levels. Over the past decade, he has spent time with both the Crossfire Premier Soccer Club and the Northwest Nationals Premier Soccer Club, garnering four State Championships.

Prior to joining the staff at Washington, Thomas headed the men's team at Edmonds (Wash.) Community College from 2005-07 and served as head coach of Seattle's Roosevelt High School boys' varsity team from 2000-05.

Thomas hails from Bangor, Wales and graduated from Glamorgan University where he was a member of the college team which advanced to the sweet 16 of the National Cup. He was a starting forward for three seasons, two of them as the team's top scorer.
