Steve Wacker wrapped up his fifth season as an assistant coach on Hawk Hill in Fall 2016. Wacker played professionally with the MISL's Philadelphia KiXX from 2005-08 and was a member of the KiXX 2007 championship team.

The Hawks are coming off of a 6-11-1 season, with a 3-5-0 mark in Atlantic 10 action, in 2016. Wacker coached senior midfielder Bliss Harris and junior midfielder Matt Crawford to Atlantic 10 Second Team All-Conference honors, marking the first time the program had earned any type of All-Conference status since 2003. Saint Joseph's earned non-conference wins over Howard, Hartford, and Central Connecticut State, improving to 4-0 all-time against Howard and earning the first wins in program history over Hartford and Central Connecticut State. SJU opened A-10 play with three consecutive wins for the first time since 2007.

In 2014, Wacker helped coach the Hawks to an overall record of 7-7-4 to reach the program's highest single-season win total since 2003. Saint Joseph’s jumped out to a 5-1-2 start to kick off the season, which marked the program's best record over its first eight matches since 2002. Over a six-match stretch from September 5-24, the Hawks went 4-0-2, which was the program’s longest unbeaten stretch since 1994.

In 2013, Wacker helped coach the Hawks to their first Atlantic 10 postseason appearance since 1994. Saint Joseph's held a scoreless tie with George Mason before the Patriots advanced on penalty kicks. With the draw, the Hawks concluded their season with a 5-8-6 overall record, marking the first time since 2007 that the men's soccer program had notched more than two league wins in one season.

Wacker earned his bachelor's of science degree from Temple University in 2005. At Temple, the Adidas All-American earned multiple Atlantic 10 and Philadelphia All-Soccer honors and was named the 2005 Temple University Male Athlete of the Year. He was also selected as an Academic All-American by ESPN the Magazine and earned the Soccer-Seven Student-Athlete of the Year award, both in 2005.

A graduate of Northeast Catholic High School, Wacker is a former Philadelphia Catholic League MVP and member of the Northeast Catholic Soccer Hall of Fame. He holds a USSF National "C" Coaching License and currently coaches youth soccer for the South Jersey Elite Barons Soccer Academy and trains various teams throughout the Tri-State area.
