Miami Surge Switch Steve Platek from Player to Coach

April 22, 2016

As the 2016 NPGL season starts to shape up there are lots of roster changes going on. This week the Miami Surge named former 40+ athlete Steve Platek as their new head coach.

Here’s a blurb from NPGL.com

The elevation to head coach was an organic one, and Platek is hungry to exploit his team’s talent.
“I have always expressed an interest in coaching,” Platek said. “The Surge management and I started to talk and the rest is history.”
