EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Oregon women's volleyball coach Jim Moore is stepping down after 12 seasons.

Oregon announced Wednesday night that Moore is retiring as of May 15. The school said in a statement that Moore and the Ducks "have come to realize that his coaching style is mismatched" with Oregon's standards.

Moore compiled a 186-98 record as head coach, leading the Ducks to the NCAA Tournament 10 times. He was Volleyball Magazine's national coach of the year in 2012.

Stacy Metro, Moore's wife, will also step down as an assistant coach but will remain with the university.

Assistant Matt Ulmer has been named interim head coach. Moore will aid remotely in the transition.

The school declined to comment further.
