According to a release from UM, Mark Plakorus coached the Grizzlies from 2011-2017. He says he's stepping down now to "open up new opportunities that will allow me to grow as both a coach and a person."

Plakorus is credited with turning around a program and helping lead it to thre Big Sky titles, as well as regional rankings by the United Soccer Coaches.
