Zach Malvik
Assistant Coach

Malvik is entering his fourth season as the assistant coach for the Winona State men’s basketball team in 2017-18.
Malvik brings extensive experience as both a player and coach to the Warrior bench. The Holmen, Wis. native previously served as an assistant at Saint Mary’s University in Winona and also spent three seasons playing professional basketball in Australia.
He has coached two All-NSIC players during his tenure at Winona State: Isaiah Gray (2014-15) and Kyle Bauman in (2015-16).
Malvik spent the 2013-14 season as an assistant coach at Saint Mary’s, helping coach Will Swiggum to All-Conference honors.
Prior to his season at SMU, Malvik played professionally for three seasons in Australia. He also spent time as a graduate assistant at the University of Arkansas.
One of the greatest players in Winona State history, Malvik was the cornerstone of a team that went 32-4 during the 2005-06 season, culminating with the program’s first national championship. He led the Warriors to a 35-1 record the next year, helping the team get back to the NCAA Division II National Championship game.
Malvik was an All-American selection during his senior season while being named the MVP of the NCAA Regional Tournament. The point guard was an All-NSIC selection in each of his four years with the program. Malvik ended his career as the program’s all-time assist leader (549) and graduated second on the school’s scoring charts (1,971).
He graduated with a business administration degree in 2007 and received a masters degree in educational leadership and sports management from WSU in 2016. Malvik and his wife Callie have one son, Zander and daughter Zoey.
