It's always a nice thing when an alum can come home to lead his former team as head coach. In Paul Tate's case, he didn't have to wait as long. Just three seasons after his final year as a player, Tate follows Tim Grove as head coach. Today the team had its first practice of the 2010 season.

Tate is looking to return his team to old form - a team that went to the ASC Playoffs three seasons in a row from 2002-2004.
