Since joining the program in January of 2011, Hunsinger has helped the Seawolves set 27 new school records, including the men's indoor 4x400m relay which was the first 4x400m relay in school history to qualify for the IC4A Championships. That team also ran at the prestigious Millrose Games during the 2012 indoor season. He has coached four All-America East Conference selections and seven IC4A individual qualifiers. He has had a hand in the women's indoor distance medley relay which won the America East Championship and scored at the ECAC Championships the two of the last three seasons.

In 2013, Hunsinger mentored Lamar Hayes to an America East Championship in the indoor long jump, the first time a Seawolf has claimed a conference crown in the event.

From 2008-10, Hunsinger served as interim head men's and women's track & field and cross country coach at SUNY Oswego. His Lakers squad produced 15 school records and a provisional Division III national qualifier in the men's triple jump. In 2007-08, Hunsinger served as an assistant coach at Oswego, working with sprints, hurdles and jumps. He coached three provisional Division III national qualifiers in men's indoor and outdoor triple jump and women's 400m hurdles, and helped lead the Lakers to 18 new school records.

Prior to joining Stony Brook, he spent the fall of 2010 as a volunteer assistant at Vermont, where he worked with the jumpers. He started his coaching career as an intern at Seton Catholic High School in Plattsburgh, N.Y.

Hunsinger is a 2007 graduate of SUNY Plattsburgh, where he was captain of the indoor and outdoor track and field teams. He holds a pair of school records and was an SUNYAC and ECAC champion. He earned his bachelor's degree in sociology with a minor in coaching track and field.
