Staten Island, NY (Sports Network) - Jason Houghtaling has returned to Wagner
College to become the Seahawks' associate head coach and offensive coordinator,
head coach Walt Hameline announced Thursday.
This marks Houghtaling's third coaching stint at Wagner. He was a Seahawks
assistant coach from 2006-2009 before becoming head coach at Hudson Valley
Community College in 2010. He then returned to Wagner as offensive coordinator
in 2011 and spent two seasons before leaving to become Cornell's offensive
coordinator last year.
Houghtaling helped Wagner capture the 2012 Northeast Conference title and win
its first-ever FCS playoff game. His offense was led by record-setting
quarterback Nick Dosher and running back Dominique Williams, and ranked No. 1
nationally with the fewest turnovers (six).
"I am thrilled that Jason has agreed to accept this important position,"
Hameline said. "His work ethic, passion, football knowledge, recruiting
contacts and familiarity with Wagner College are all major assets that will pay
huge dividends for our program in 2014 and beyond.
"With Hoss (Houghtaling's nickname), we have an individual who has the respect
of everyone that he comes into contact with. He is someone who is highly
regarded by high school coaches both within our region and on a national
