Scott Barth has resigned as Oregon High School boys soccer coach.

Barth, coming off back-to-back Badger South Conference championships, will be moving to Texas with his wife, Tricia, and their two girls.

Barth said his wife will soon begin a new job near Dallas, while he and his children will continue to live in Janesville until the end of the school year.

I will at some point try to continue coaching, said Barth. But well see what happens. I dont know a lot about the area.

Barth, a native of Menomonee Falls, coached three seasons at Big Foot High School, where he was an assistant with the girls for two years and a boys assistant for one year.

He then spent seven seasons as the Milton boys head coach, highlighted by a trip to state in 2002.

The last two seasons his Oregon teams went unbeaten in the Badger South and advanced to the WIAA Division 1 sectionals both years.

It was a very difficult decision, Id have to say, Barth said of stepping down. Soccer gives me a lot of pleasure and excitement. I have a very high passion for it.

Ive really enjoyed the last four years at Oregon, he added. I expect really, really good things out of Oregon next year.
