Mike turned down a head coaching position to pursue this new adventure and has been with Tip of the Spear since 2016.
As one of our most experienced Instructors, Mike has enjoyed sharing his technical insight and playing experiences with Coaches & Players at all levels. He has instructed Clinics & Camps all over the country and in front of large audiences including the Nike Coach of the Year Clinic. He resides in his hometown of Chandler, AZ with his wife and three children.
On why he joined Tip of the Spear…
”I have the opportunity to help change the narrative surrounding football. After I retired from the NFL, I had concerns about my own kids playing football. That all changed when I was introduced to this program and learned how we can develop contact. This is the future of football and I am excited and relieved that my children will have a better foundation than I had.”
