Mike is probably best known for the passion he exudes when discussing all things related to the University of Tennessee – the “clean orange” as he often refers to it. He is a football season ticket holder and loves hosting friends to a game, showing them the haunts from his college years and exposing them to the full Big Orange experience.
While more private, he spends most of his time with his family and friends. He has been married for over 22 years to Wendy, a Baylor graduate. His daughter, Grace, is a Junior at Clemson University majoring in Bioengineering. His son, Jackson, is a Senior at JJ Pearce High School, and plans to major in Mechanical Engineering, possibly at the University of Tennessee.
In addition to coaching youth sports, Mike serves in his church, and is a past President of his neighborhood homeowner’s association. He graduated from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville with a B.S. in Industrial Engineering in 1985. During his senior year, Mike was one of five recipients of the Torchbearer Award, the highest award given to undergraduates, in honor of his academic and service contributions to the university during his four years.
