Overall record: 117-72 (thru 2013)
Yoder became the first full-time head softball coach in school history prior to the 2012-13 season. He and Glenn Johnson were co-head coaches from 2010-12. Yoder and Johnson took over the Mustang softball program in the fall of 2006, and were named the 2010 Midwest Collegiate Conference Coach of the Year after leading Mount Mercy to the MCC regular season and tournament championships. The Mustangs also earned their first NAIA national tournament berth since 1990. The 37 wins were the second most wins in school history, just shy of the 39 victories by the Mustangs in 1996.
Under Yoder and Johnson, the Mustangs have rewritten the offensive record book. They've set single-season school records for slugging percentage, total bases, doubles, home runs, and stolen bases. Defensively, the 2010 squad held opponents to the lowest batting average in school history and broke the strikeout and shut out records.
Yoder graduated from Iowa Wesleyan College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in education. He played baseball throughout college, leading the Tigers in home runs during the 1983 and 1984 seasons. Yoder is Vice President of the Cedar Rapids Fastpitch Softball Association and has coached fastpitch softball for 12 years. He is a member of the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) and holds a Four-Star Master Coach Certification from the NFCA.
