During his time at University he completed both the Level 1 & 2 coaching courses. A move to the Isle of Man then followed to take up a teaching and coaching role at King William's College during which time he qualified as a PE teacher.

Mike is currently teaching PE and coaching rugby at King's Rochester and his experience of coaching junior players has been extended through roles with both Harlequins and Saracens community departments.
