A season ago, Steve Burns was leading the Michigan men's soccer team to a Big Ten tournament title and the national semifinals in the men's College Cup.

On Wednesday, Burns resigned after finishing his 12th season with a 5-14-1 record.

"As a Michigan alum, I'm proud of everything we've been able to accomplish within the soccer program," Burns said in a statement. "I will forever cherish the relationships that I have developed over the past 12 years with players, assistant coaches, support staff and fellow coaches within the department. However, it's time for a new direction in my life and leadership for Michigan soccer."
