College Coaching Moves: Greg Ryan is out at Michigan

Greg Ryan, who coached the U.S. women's national team at the 2007 World Cup, is out after 10 seasons at the women's head coach at Michigan.

"It has been determined that Greg Ryan will not return as our women's soccer coach," said Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel in a statement released on Thursday night.

Michigan was 6-6-6 in 2017 after winning 10 or more games in five straight seasons. The Wolverines were 10-5-5 in 2016 and expecting a strong season in 2017 with seven returning starters and a top 10 recruiting class.

"I have enjoyed my time at the University of Michigan and appreciate the opportunity to lead these student-athletes," said Ryan. "I am proud of our successes and look forward to my next professional opportunity."

Ryan compiled a record of 103-64-36 and led the Wolverines to four NCAA Tournament appearances.
