St. Cloud, Minn. - St. Cloud State head women's soccer coach Becky McCabe has announced her resignation.
The winningest coach in Huskies women's soccer history, McCabe completed her sixth season with the Huskies last fall posting a 10-7-1 overall mark and a 7-7-1 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) record.
In six seasons at St. Cloud State, McCabe has posted a 58-44-13 record and is 89-67-18 in her nine-year collegiate coaching career.
"I want to thank SCSU for the wonderful experience they have provided my family and I over the last six years," said McCabe. "The Huskies will have a special place in our hearts. I have met many great people and feel blessed to have been a part of the Husky family."
McCabe's teams competed in five straight NSIC postseason tournaments, advancing to the final four twice. She has coached 18 all-conference players and her athletes have earned 40 academic all-conference honors, including 12 in 2013. She recruited and coached two NSIC Freshmen of the Year in Mary Morhardt (2009) and Tara Evangelist (2008) who was also the league's co-Newcomer of the Year.
Prior to joining the Huskies staff, McCabe (Heiberger) was the head women's soccer coach at the University of South Dakota for three seasons. Her USD teams were ranked among the top ten in the regional rankings and in 2005 the Coyotes participated in the NCAA Division II soccer tournament, and for the first time in program history earned a national ranking, topping out at number six. McCabe posted a 31-23-5 record at USD and was the 2005 North Central Conference Coach of the Year.
A standout collegiate player at Creighton University, McCabe was a two-time team captain and helped lead her team to Missouri Valley Conference regular season and tournament titles, and the NCAA tournament in 2002.
McCabe is pursuing other opportunities and a national search for her replacement will begin immediately.
