After nearly four decades roaming the sidelines at Naperville Central, Mike Stine is retiring. Stine spent 37 years with the Redhawks, the last 15 as the program’s head coach.

Stine owns a record of 104-55 as NC’s head coach, winning an 8A title in 2013. Stine also won a state title when he was part of Joe Bunge’s staff.

Naperville Central sent Stine into retirement on a high note with a thrilling come-from-behind 31-30 win over Maine South last month.
