In 13 years of coaching Houston Cougars baseball, he is the winningest coach in Cougars history. Noble's coaching career record is 491-354 (.581). A native Houstonian, Noble attended Spring Woods High School and holds both a bachelor's and master's degree from the University of Houston. From 1983 to 1987, Noble played Minor League Baseball in the Houston Astros organization. Wearing one of the highest numbers in college baseball (#85, as opposed to his playing #9), Noble claims he wears it to remind himself of when he became a Christian in 1985.
