Effective immediately, Matt Houser has stepped down from his role as the girls’ varsity basketball coach to pursue a collegiate coaching position.
Houser was a coach at SMCHS for the past five seasons, including two CIF championships, will be pursuing an assistant coaching position at Concordia University.
“Today I will be resigning as head coach for Santa Margarita Catholic High School girls’ basketball. I have been offered a coaching job at Concordia University. This is a great time in my life to keep working to reach my goal to be a head Division 1 college coach” Houser said.
“I want to thank you all for all the great times while I have been coaching here at SMCHS, thank you so much for everything and I wish the program the best of luck.”
The school’s athletic department and administration will begin their search for a Houser’s replacement as head girls’ varsity basketball coach right away.
