After making the playoffs for the first time in school history, the University of Michigan-Dearborn men’s soccer team is back to square one.
The Michigan Journal has learned that Micheal Hatfield resigned as men’s soccer coach at UM-Dearborn in November 2013.
Interim Director of Athletics Dr. Ann Lampkin-Williams confirmed Hatfield’s resignation in an email to the Journal, but did not provide a reason.
“UM-D is respectful of its past and current employees right to privacy,” she said.
At this time, no successor has been named. According the Lampkin-Williams, the opening will be posted on umjobs.org in January.
Hatfield led the Wolverines to a 7-22-3 record since taking over before the 2012 season.
Hatfield coaches boys and girls soccer at Trenton High School and Michigan Rush Downriver Youth Soccer Club.
