Coaching career

At Williams College, Paulsen won the 2003 Division III title, and finished as national runner up in 2004. Paulsen was twice named Division III Coach of the Year during his time at Williams.

On May 20, 2008, Paulsen was hired as head coach at Bucknell. Paulsen led the Bison to a disappointing 7–23 record in his first year at Bucknell. This constituted the school's worst winning percentage (.233) since the 1971–72 when the Bison posted a mark of 5–18 (.217). In his second year, the Bison improved to 12-17, including a 9-5 record in Patriot League play. In his third year, Paulsen was named Patriot League Coach of the Year en route to leading his team to a 25-8 record heading into the NCAA tournament, including a 13-1 record in the Patriot League, culminating in both the regular season and Patriot League tournament championships.

During his time at Bucknell, Paulsen recruited and coached future NBA player, Mike Muscala.

On March 30, 2015, Paulsen was hired as head coach of George Mason. His team struggled in his first year, finishing the season with an overall record of 11–21, 5–13 in conference and in thirteenth place in the Atlantic 10. His second year at George Mason saw the team improve big time, finishing 20–14 overall and 9–9 in A–10 play, and receiving an invitation to the 2017 CBI, where they would lose in the first round to Loyola (MD).
