Detroit Mercy Head Lacrosse Coach Matt Holtz Steps Down

DETROIT (5/30/14) -- University of Detroit Mercy head lacrosse coach Matt Holtz announced today (Friday, May 30) his resignation after six seasons as the Titans' head coach. Holtz compiled a 26-60 overall record and a 15-17 mark in MAAC play during his tenure.

"We appreciate Matt's efforts on behalf of Titan Athletics," said Director of Athletics Robert C. Vowels, Jr. "Matt has been a valuable member of the men's lacrosse program since its inception in 2009 and we wish him well in his future endeavors."

Holtz took the Titans from 0-11 in the team's inaugural season in 2009 to a MAAC Championship title game in 2011, before winning the conference title and earning an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament in 2013.

The Titans finished their 2014 season 6-8 overall, 3-3 in conference play and reached the MAAC Semifinals for the fourth-straight season.

Detroit will begin a search for Holtz' replacement immediately.
