PlayBook Tech, Inc., is a sports software company based in Tennessee. The company is conceived by Coach Charlie Coiner, a 30-year veteran of NFL and NCAA football. The mission is to help coaches at all levels spend more time developing football players and less time consumed with designing plays.

Having been named to the Hall of Fame at every level of football, he knows how difficult it can be for players to learn, understand and execute game plans. As a former NFL Coach, Mike has experienced the challenges of breaking through to players so they see, and experience game preparation in new and different ways. Singletary’s vision, defensive drive, and position as the field general were crucial to the 1985 Chicago Bears SuperBowl victory.
