JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Dec. 1, 2010) - ETSU women's soccer head coach Heather Henson announced Wednesday that she will be resigning from her position with the Buccaneers.
 
Henson, who has directed the ETSU women's soccer team for the past 12 seasons, said it was a pleasure to have guided the Bucs and she was proud of the program's accomplishments during her tenure.
 
"It has been an honor to be the head coach at ETSU for the past 12 seasons," Henson said. "We have enjoyed a lot a great moments in this program - both on and off the field. We were also part of many important milestones for soccer at ETSU, like the construction of Summers-Taylor Stadium.
 
"However, at this point I think my approach and the approach of the administration is different, so I think it's best both personally and professionally to examine new opportunities. I'm looking forward to the future."
 
ETSU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dave Mullins said the process to find a new coach would begin immediately and he thanked Henson for her efforts.
 
"Coach Henson and her entire family have been, and still are, an important part of our ETSU family," Mullins said. "We thank her for her hard work in building a foundation for our women's soccer program.
 
"We are at a point where we believe our program can grow, flourish, and compete year-in and year-out for conference championships. In the past, we have not reached this level of performance. Our hope is that our next coach can bring new ideas and strategies to make that happen."
