Background

Coach Wexler

My name is Mike Wexler and I have been coaching football and skill position players for 11 years. My career started in 2000 when I was hired at a school in my hometown of Miami. Since then, I’ve grown tremendously as a person as a well as a football coach to have made a successful career out of it.

Along the way, I’ve been extremely fortunate to have coached for great coaches and great programs but the most important asset that I take from this profession is the growth, maturity, and relationship between the players. Football is engrained in my persona thanks to the athletes that I have coached along the way.

The amount of time and effort that a football coach puts in is put into perspective when on a fall Saturday afternoon, I can turn on the TV and watch 2 or 3 of the players that I coached perform for their respective Division I (FBS) schools.
