Head Coach Roger French has completed his second year at Engadine Schools. During his first season of coaching, his team beat Brimley, a team who had advanced to the Regional Finals in Class D. He also had two players receive All-State selections through the Basketball Coaches' Association of Michigan (which he is a member of) during 2010-11 and 2011-12, two players receive 2011-12 Individual All-State Academic Awards and his team receive Honorable Mention in the 2011-12 Academic All-State award selection.

He has also coached youth soccer for the Engadine Soccer Association (founded by Yvette Leveille Pawlowski '82).
