Buresh helped guide the Thunder to two conference (CCIW) championships, two Sweet 16 playoff appearances, two top ten rankings, and a record of 22-2 in two seasons. In 2015, the Thunder offense led the conference in total offense and scoring offense. Two wide receivers earned All-Conference recognition during Buresh’s two seasons at Wheaton. Prior to working at Wheaton, he coached at Midland University for three seasons from 2011-2013. Buresh served as the co-offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach in 2013. In his time at Midland, he coached wide receivers, running backs and special teams. Buresh mentored one All American wide receiver and eight All-Conference players during his time at Midland.
