JACKSON, Miss. (Dec. 5, 2018) – On Monday, Millsaps College Director of Athletics Donald Brooks announced that Steve Voltz would be stepping down from his post as the head men's soccer of the Majors.

Voltz will be relocating to Canada where he can spend more time with his family. A national search will be conducted, immediatley.

"I would personally like to thank coach Voltz for his time and dedication to Millsaps College soccer,'' said Brooks. "He put countless hours into building the soccer program at Millsaps into what it is today. We wish him nothing but the best as he moves on to this next chapter."

Voltz leaves Millsaps as the all-time leader in program wins. He amassed a 62-46-5 record during his six seasons on the Majors' bench and was 24-16-2 in Southern Athletic Association (SAA) matches.

"First, I'd like to thank the entire Millsaps College administration for their support during my tenure," said Voltz. "I am especially grateful to our student-athletes and my assistant coaches, that have made our program so successful over my time here. Those relationships will be missed the most," he continued. "While I am excited about the new adventures ahead with my family, my heart will always hold a special place for Millsaps College and all the relationships made here."

The 2013 season was his first at Millsaps. He immediately doubled the Majors' win total for 6 to 12 and won the regular-season SAA championship. In the postseason Millsaps advanced all the way to the SAA Championship match.

In 2014, Millsaps captured another regular-season conference title, and best his win total from the previous season by one.

The 2015 season was the most successful for Voltz and the Majors. They set a program record for wins with 14, and despite losing the regular-season conference crown to Oglethorpe, Millsaps knocked off Sewanee in the championship match of the SAA tournament to claim the program's first conference title and NCAA regional berth.

Voltz closed his career at Millsaps by winning 23 games over the last three seasons.

All told, he coached 31 All-SAA players during his time with the Majors and finished with 11 SAA Tournament victories, including most recently upsetting No. 2 seeded Rhodes College in the quarterfinal round this past season.
