Georgia fires women's soccer coach

ATHENS - Georgia is searching for a new women's soccer head coach. The school announced Monday that Steve Holema, who had run the program the past five years, "will not return" next season.

"We appreciate Steve’s efforts, and wish him the very best in his future endeavors," athletics director Greg McGarity said. "He has always represented UGA in a first-class manner."

Georgia went 53-39-11 under Holeman, making the NCAA tournament twice, including this past season. The Bulldogs went out in the first round, 2-1, to Central Florida. This is the fifth head coach that McGarity has fired since he took over in Aug. 2010. He made changes in baseball, gymnastics, volleyball and women's golf.
