The head coach of the Ryerson Rams women’s soccer team is leaving .
The Rams announced Kevin Souter’s departure earlier this week.
Souter said that he would be moving back home this summer with his family to focus on being a dad.
“I will be moving to Scotland this summer to be near family and pursue different opportunities within the game of soccer. With a young family I am seeking the opportunity to enjoy fatherhood at its most important time,” he told the athletics department.
Souter used to play for Scotland’s national semi-professional soccer team in 2005 before moving to the United States to play college soccer for Graceland University, under the supervision of Ryerson’s current athletics director Ivan Joseph.
While in the U.S., Souter got signed on as a developmental player for the Kansas City Wizards in 2008 before deciding to move to Canada, where he joined Ryerson as a student-athlete in 2010 for the men’s soccer team. It was here he reunited with Joseph who was head coach at the time.
Souter served as coordinator for both the men’s and women’s soccer teams before eventually becoming head coach of the women’s team in 2012 and has helped the women’s team move forward since then.
A job posting for a new head coach will be posted by next week, but until then, the team remains without a leader.
