HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

After six years, Kyle Maxie has decided to step down as head baseball coach at Presbyterian Christian School. The announcement was made today.

Although he won't be in the dugout, Maxie will still be involved with PCS athletics in an administrative role.

"After several weeks of thought, prayers, and conversation with all involved, I feel it is best for me to step away from baseball, a game that I have loved for many years, and turn my full attention to other aspects of my career," Maxie said in a release. "This decision has not been easy but is one that I feel the Lord has directed me in with new doors being opened."

Maxie had a standout career at North Forrest before getting drafted in the 22nd round by the New York Mets in 2005. He decided to play for Florida State. Maxie transferred to Pearl River Community College before transferring to Southern Miss (played in 2008 and 2009).

The school's search for a new coach will begin immediately.
