Entering his seventh season on the men's soccer coaching staff, Dayton-area native and former Raider soccer player Jake Slemker was promoted to Associate Head Coach in August 2016.  Slemker has been the Lead Assistant and Recruiting Coordinator for the program in March 2014 and Associate Head Coach in the summer of 2016.

During his time on the WSU staff, the Raiders have risen to new levels of excellence, advancing to four Horizon League finals, posting four double digit winning seasons and recruiting two national Top 40 classes.

In 2016, he helped lead the Raiders to Horizon League regular-season title and the #1 seed with the honor of hosting the league tournament. The Raiders have played in the finals four times in the last six years.  WSU went 11-6-3 overall record and 7-1-1 in the Horizon League in 2016.

Slemker joined the Wright State staff in March 2010 after a two-year stint as an assistant coach at Scottsdale (AZ) Community College.  While at SCC, that program hit new heights with most wins (12) in school history in 2009 when they defeated defending national champions Yavapai.  SCC also made their first Play-Off appearance ever in 2008.

A native of Englewood, Ohio, Slemker played for the Raiders from 2003 to 2006 and was a four-year starter in the backfield.  Following his WSU career, Slemker played professionally with the Dayton Dutch Lions, Arizona Sahuraos, Cincinnati Kings Albany Admirals and Cleveland Internationals.

Slemker graduated from Wright State in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice and earned a master's degree in applied behavioral science in 2012.
