Head Mens Soccer Coach
A 1987 DePauw University graduate, Brad Hauter returned to his alma mater in 2008 to take over for veteran coach, Page Cotton, who resigned after 39 seasons. Hauter enters his ninth season with the Tigers and 20th as a mens collegiate head coach and is just the third mens soccer coach in the programs history.
In eight seasons at the helm in Greencastle, Hauter has led DePauw teams to a 100-30-24 record for a .727 winning percentage. His teams have compiled at least a .667 winning percentage to extend the programs streak of .500 or better seasons to 34 straight years. Hauters teams have surrendered just 138 goals in 154 contests.
In 2015, the Tigers finished 12-4-5 overall and 6-1-2 in conference play and advanced for the first time to the round of 16 of the Division III Mens Soccer Championship. It was their third tournament appearance in the last five seasons and first since 2012.
Assistant Mens Soccer Coach
After starting two years as a goalkeeper for the Tigers, Jake Pezzuto (15) transitioned into the assistant mens soccer coach position in 2015.
In those two years, Pezzuto recorded a 23-8-4 record with nine shutouts and a 0.93 goal against average. His 113 saves also accompanied his .774 save percentage.
He was an All-NCAC Honorable Mention in 2013. His save percentage (.795) and goals against average (.80) was second best in the conference.
