DURHAM, N.H. ---- University of New Hampshire Athletic Director Marty Scarano announced Thursday that women's soccer coach Michael Jackson has resigned after 18 seasons as head coach.
"I want to thank Mike Jackson for his years of service and the contributions he has made to UNH," Scarano said. "He has always run a program of integrity both on and off the field and has been a consummate professional."
Jackson, who made 15 tournament appearances with the 'Cats, led UNH to the title game in 1998 and 2007, as well as semifinal appearances in 1995 through 1996 and 2002 through 2006. He also led the 'Cats to America East tournament appearances in 2000 and 2008 through 2012.
Jackson was named the America East Coach of the Year in 1998 and 2002, and led a staff that garnered America East Coaching Staff of the Year honors in 2007.
A national search for a new women's soccer coach will begin immediately.
