GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Colorado Mesa's soccer programs will see big change in the coming season. Head coaches of the men's and women's teams stepped down on Tuesday.

Men's coach Josh Pittman has served as the Mavericks head coach for seven seasons - since the program got its start in 2007.

The Mavs qualified for the RMAC tournament for the first time in 2010 and again in 2012, but it wasn't until this season that they advanced past the quarterfinals and went on to upset the top seed for the conference tournament title. Unfortunately, even in their best season, CMU did not earn a bid into the NCAA tournament.

As a coach he had a 43-51-11 record. Assistant coach Jonny Broadhead has been appointed as the interim coach as the national search begins.

Erin Sharpe also put in her letter of resignation on Tuesday. During Sharpe's six seasons at the helm, she posted a 53-55-12 record with their best showing in 2011, when the Lady Mavericks finished as the RMAC's runner-up and made an appearance in the NCAA tournament.

In the meantime, assistant Jason Clare steps in as the interim coach.
