The Atlanta Kookaburras are pleased to announce Mick Keough has accepted the role as Head Coach for the 2014 season. Mick hails from South Australia and grew up playing Aussie Rules from an early age at primary (Elementary) school and continued for 22 years through to 1993 when he landed in America! Mick's junior years were spent playing for Central Districts Juniors in the SANFL (South Australia National Football League) in Adelaide and also spent time in the SAFA's (South Australian Football Association) Amateur league.
After moving to Yeppoon on Queensland's central coast Mick joined the Yeppoon Swans where the team strung together a purple patch winning three Grand Finals in four years, the experience of winning that many GF's in such a short time was euphoric and somewhat surreal, many blokes go their whole carrier and never know the joy of winning the "Big One"
Mick has has been fortunate to tasted Grand Final victory at every club he has played for along with a few defeats and is the only player to play two consecutive Grand Finals for a SAFA club without playing a home and away game (in 'A' grade) between them.
Mick hope's to draw on his years of football experience both good and bad to help the Atlanta Kookaburras develop the same winning spirit and build a strong club that can proudly represent the City of Atlanta locally and at Nationals for years to come.
