A 1994 Baker graduate, Houser has led the Wildcats to four consecutive NAIA Men's Soccer National Championship Tournaments. Houser has compiled a 225-118-26 overall record at Baker, including his 10 years at the helm of the men's program and his tenure as head coach of the women's soccer program from 2003-2014.
