Former men’s soccer head coach Steve Adlard passed away after a long fight with cancer, Marquette Athletics announced Tuesday afternoon. He was 67.

Adlard was the winningest coach in program history, accumulating 140 wins in 14 seasons at Marquette before retiring in 2005. He also played a key part in bringing current women’s soccer head coach Markus Roeders to the university.

“It’s hard to put into words the impact he had on my life and many others,” Roeders said in a statement. “Without him, I wouldn’t be at Marquette and probably not in coaching.”

Current men’s soccer coach Louis Bennett said Adlard had an “intricate” role in designing Valley Fields, the current home for Marquette’s soccer and lacrosse programs.

Funeral plans have yet to be announced.

    Steve Adlard was my PE teacher at Park Barn Secondary School in the mid to late 1970’s. His enthusiasm for sporting excellence was second to none. He played goalkeeper for England Schools and also cricket for Minor Counties team Lincolnshire. I made contact with Steve only last year and he sounded really positive, so his news of his death has saddened us all. He will be sorely missed by all ex alumni @ Park Barn. RIP Steve.
