In Bulkley's first year with Greenwich High School, he led the team to an FCIAC title. Prior to Greenwich, Bulkley helped lead Darien to five state championships. Bulkley has coached more than 30 high school All-Americans and four Connecticut Players of the Year. He also coached the CT Chargers U18 and U17 Blue Teams, winning back-to-back Bison Brawls 2009-2010, the 2010 Bryant Shootout and the 2011 Crab City Challenge. Bulkley was named the MSG Varsity Coach of the Year in 2010.
Prior to Bulkley's coaching career he was the Captain of the University of North Carolina Lacrosse team in 1995 and a member of three ACC Lacrosse Championship teams.
