The former New Zealand captain stated it was time for change.
“I feel the time is right for me to step down and allow someone else to take the reins and the club forward,” he stated in a press release late Wednesday.
“The club is in very good shape having rebounded from last in BBL 07 to grand finalist this season.”
His determination follows fellow former New Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori opting to not renew his contract with Brisbane Heat, leaving two head coach roles to be stuffed earlier than the brand new season begins.
Stars president Eddie McGuire stated Fleming had been “a wonderful servant”.
“He has left a large footprint on the club which we will be forever grateful for,” he added.
Glenn Maxwell’s Stars regarded on track to win the all-Melbourne BBL remaining final month.
Chasing 146 to win towards Aaron Finch’s Renegades, they have been 93 with out loss and cruising earlier than shedding an unbelievable seven wickets for 19 runs to stoop to a 13-run defeat.
