About the Speaker

Mike Swider has been a Wheaton College football coach since 1985, head coach since 1996. With a 189-49 record, Mike is one of the winningest college football coaches at any level. His influence on and off the field has impacted thousands he has coached and countless others he has inspired through national speaking engagements.

In late 2017, the school and the football program came into national focus over a controversy involving hazing allegations. Overnight, everything Mike Swider worked towards in his life and in the lives of his players came under attack.

Mike will speak personally and candidly about what he is experiencing and how his faith drives and defines his leadership in the midst of life’s storms.
