In 1997, Mike transitioned to coaching football at the NHIAA high school level, spending a year with Milford, 9 years with Merrimack, and 5 years with Hollis-Brookline. In 2013, Mike was named varsity Head Football Coach at Souhegan High School, where he remained until after 2016, when he stepped down to allow him to transition back to coaching youth sports as his young sons grew older. In addition to his tackle football experience, Mike has also coached youth baseball since 2017 in the New Boston and Goffstown programs. He has coached youth flag football in Goffstown, Weare, and at the Bedford Sportsplex since 2018.
