[STANFORD] Bret Simon, who led Stanford to the Men's College Cup in his first two seasons at the Farm, has resigned, effective immediately.

After he arrived at Stanford in 2001, the Cardinal went a combined 36-7-4 in his first two seasons and los to UCLA in the 2002 championship game.

But Stanford went 58-82-26 the last nine seasons and made only one NCAA Tournament appearance. In 2011, it was 6-10-2.

"I have been truly blessed to have worked at Stanford for the past eleven seasons," said Simon. "Stanford University is the best environment in the world to develop young people to their fullest potential."

"It has been a privilege for me and my family to be a part of this great educational endeavor. I appreciate the opportunity to work with so many exceptional student-athletes, talented coaches, and dedicated administrators and staff."
