Chicago Machine is excited to announce the return of coach Andy Neilsen for the 2016 season. Neilsen, who previously played and captained for Machine, served his first year as team coach in 2015.

A student of the game, Neilsen co-created and served as an instructor of the CUT Coaching Academy earlier this year. In addition to his focus on strategy and execution, Neilsen is highly regarded for his emphasis on team character and culture development. 

Neilsen will join recently announced captains Cullen Geppert, Kevin Kelly, Ron Kubalanza, and Walden Nelson in bringing back the full leadership core from Machine's 2015 team.
