Pete Samborsky, who competed for the Raiders from 1993-97, was named as the head golf coach at Wright State University in September 2009.

In 2017, he guided Ryan Wenzler to a spot on the First Team All-Horizon League and Austin Sipe to the 2nd team. Wenzler was named the Horizon League's Golf Co-Player of the Year while in 2016 Wenzler qualified for the NCAA Tournament by winning the Horizon League Tournament.

In 2012, the Raiders' head coach was named the Horizon League Coach of the Year while he guided Cody Fixari to a spot on the all-conference team as he placed sixth at the league tournament.

The Wright State golf program rose to the occasion for the 2011 Horizon League Championship, finishing second overall. It was the best WSU finish in many years as it was just seven strokes off the lead. Jordan Higgins placed third while Scott Thompson finished tied for fifth. Charlie Doll and Thompson were named All-Horizon League.

Samborsky was a key component as Wright State won the Midwestern Collegiate Conference (MCC) Championship in both 1996 and 1997, after finishing second in 1995. He claimed medalist honors as a senior in 1997 as he compiled a three-round score of 212, including a career-best 69 in the final round, as the Raiders tied a conference record in winning the team title by 44 strokes at the Country Club of the North in Beavercreek. He was named the team MVP that season as he recorded four other top 20 finishes and posted a 75.8 round average. Samborsky tied for seventh at the MCC championship as a junior and tied for 12th as a sophomore, as he earned All-Conference honors as a junior and senior. During his college career he also served as a liaison to the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and was the recipient of the team's Raider Award as a junior.

Since competing at WSU, Samborsky has put together a solid amateur career. He has won the prestigious Miami Valley Metropolitan Championship, a 72-hole stroke play event, in 2002, 2006, 2007 and 2008 and was second in 2003. He has had six top 20 finishes in the Ohio Amateur in this decade, and has qualified for the four USGA's championships. He competed in the US Amateur in 2001, and 2005, the US Mid-Amateur in 2002, and represented the state of Ohio in the 2007 USGA State Team Championship. Away from the course, Samborsky is on the Board of Directors for the Miami Valley Golf Association and has served as a Tournament Director.

A Cincinnati native, Samborsky is currently the Chief Financial Officer for ITS Financial in Dayton. Samborsky earned Bachelor's degrees in both Accountancy and Finance from Wright State in 1998, and is a co-owner of two local Cold Stone Creamery ice cream stores in the Beavercreek/Bellbrook area.
