In the National Premier Soccer League, players understand the technical side of the game, Hindley’s job is to “professionalize” them about the other aspects of playing professional soccer, from the schedule to nutrition, he said.

Hindley will return in the fall to coach the Port St. Joe programs, where he has enjoyed considerable success the past five years.

The job, Hindley noted, has come with pitfalls, in particular the turnover endemic in a high school program.

“This was the hardest coaching challenge I’ve ever had,” Hindley said. “You start over every year. And I’ve four opportunities for other jobs, but none of them were good enough to leave Port St. Joe.”

Hindley’s teams have combined to go 84-56-10 over the past five years. His boys teams have won two district championships and finished second in the district two other times.

The Lady Tiger Sharks have finished has district runners-up three times.
