Jake Ouimet returns for his seventh season as the head coach of the Duquesne University soccer program. He was named to the post in March, 2006, making him the third head coach in the 15-year history of the sport on the Bluff. He came to Duquesne after seven seasons on the George Washington University men's soccer coaching staff, including one year as associate head coach.
Ouimet had an impressive head coaching debut, leading the Dukes to an 11-7-2 slate in 2006 and a berth in the Atlantic 10 Championship. His squad boasted an NSCAA All-Region First team choice in Travis MacKenzie, a third team All-Region selection in Noah Salsi and four Atlantic 10 All Conference honorees. MacKenzie was named to the First Team while Salsi, Tom Sochacki and Zach Varga were named Second All Conference. Freshman Alex Trujillo was honored on the All-Rookie Team.
During his tenure at GW, Ouimet served as recruiting coordinator and was the primary assistant in the day-to-day running of the program. In that capacity, he was also responsible for field coaching, player development, opponent scouting and match preparation.
Twelve Colonials earned all-conference honors while Ouimet was at George Washington and his efforts have also helped produce two Atlantic 10 Championships, including the school's first in 2002 as well as two NCAA Tournament berths, one in 2002 and more recently in 2004. He has also helped guide the Colonials to four of the past five Atlantic 10 Championships and was instrumental in the Colonials historical win over the University of North Carolina in 2004.
A standout player at the University of Maine from 1992-96, he was the 1992 North Atlantic Conference Rookie of the Year. Ouimet is the all-time leader in career goals and points at the University of Maine and was a three-time regional All-American. He graduated from Maine in 1996 with a degree in business administration.
As a player in the professional ranks, Ouimet competed for the Worcester Wildfire of the A-League from 1997-98, leading the team in points and goals. He was named to the A-League Team of the Week on July 20, 1997. Ouimet also played for the Cape Cod Crusaders of the USISL from 1998-99 and led the squad in points and goals.

In addition to his collegiate coaching, Ouimet has also been the head coach of the Sterling United Soccer Club, a highly competitive team, ranked in the top three in Virginia.
