Coach Miller is entering his fifth season with the Eagles; his fourth as the team's Head Coach.  He joined the team at the beginning of the 2015/2016 season as Defensive Coordinator taking the reigns from then Head Coach Tyler Foote just before the start of the 2017 regular season.

Coach Miller also served as the Head Coach for Ann Arbor Pioneer High School from 2016 to 2018 after seven seasons as the Defensive Coordinator with Father Gabriel Richard High School in Ann Arbor and a couple years with the Plymouth High School program.

His favorite memory from his first four seasons with the team is the road trip to Case Western and Ball State in 2017.  His biggest accomplishment (so far) is taking the team to the NCLL Divisional Playoffs in back-to-back seasons (2018 and 2019).

Coach Miner enters his third season as an assistant coach with the Eagles after playing four years with the program. In addition to his duties coaching the team's defense, Miner also works closely with the team's face-off players.

Miner played long-pole defense and short-stick midfielder during his time with the Eagles, taking face-offs his senior season.  He also served as Club Treasurer his freshman and sophomore years and President during his junior and senior years.  His favorite memory from his playing days is facing Aquinas in the team's first game back wearing different colored reversibles with duct tape numbers!

Miner graduated from Catholic Central High School in Novi, MI.

Coach Ross enters his first season as an assistant coach with the Eagles after spending the last four years with the program as player, captain and board member.

Coach Ross played midfield and holds many of the team's offensive scoring records.  He graduated from Father Gabriel Richard High School in Ann Arbor, MI where he played four years.

Coach Pennington enters his second season as an assistant coach with the Eagles helping coach midfielders and special teams.  Alec also played four years with the program.

Pennington graduated from Saline High School in Saline, MI where he played fours years as an attackman.
