Soul name Mike Hohensee head coach

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Soul named Mike Hohensee as the team's head coach for when they return to the Arena Football League in 2011.

The Soul, who won the ArenaBowl in 2008 before the AFL folded, will return to play in the new AFL in 2011. The team was formerly coached by Bret Munsey, who is currently the director of player personnel for the Florida Tuskers of the UFL.

"Mike is the perfect fit for this town and for this organization," said co- majority owner and former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski. "He has a championship ring and is a 'blue collar' coach for this 'blue collar' town."

Hohensee has previously been a head coach in the AFL for 16 seasons with Washington, Albany, Anaheim, New England and Chicago and won ArenaBowl XX. He is the league's third-winningest coach of all-time with a 140-112 career record.

"It's an honor to be included with the return of the 2008 AFL champion Philadelphia Soul," Hohensee said. "Obviously, being the best meant something here in Philadelphia long before I arrived. I intend to carry on with the same championship mindset alongside each of the players and coaches who will be fortunate enough to be a part of this first-class organization."
