Coach leaving to teach at Waconia after winning two conference titles in four seasons

After being involved in Marshall baseball in several capacities for over 20 years, Steve Fleck is stepping away from the diamond to put his focus on family.

Over the weekend, Fleck resigned as the Tigers' head baseball coach, ending a four-year run where Marshall went 60-30 and won back-to-back Southwest Conference titles in 2010-11. Fleck also stepped down from teaching fifth-grade math at Marshall Middle School.
Fleck said his family will be relocating to Waconia, where he has family in the area. He also stated that he will not be coaching for the foreseeable future.
Fleck has been the Tigers' head coach since 2009, when he replaced Blaine Schnaible. Before then, Fleck worked at the high-school level as an assistant coach for Pat Irsfeld.
