Mike Coman (born 28 September 1987) is a New Zealand rugby union footballer who plays as loose forward (back row) for London Irish in the Aviva Premiership. He has been involved in the Hurricanes Wider Training Group in both the 2012 and 2013 Super Rugby seasons.
Having previously played in his homeland for Hawke's Bay Magpies in the ITM Cup, Coman moved to Scotland upon signing for Edinburgh Rugby in September 2013, and made his debut with a brief appearance from the replacements' bench during the home Boxing Day defeat to Glasgow Warriors.
With Edinburgh's captain Greig Laidlaw on international duty during the 2014 Six Nations Championship, Coman captained the side during their ongoing Pro12 campaign, with his first victory as skipper coming in the win over Ospreys on 28 February. Laidlaw left the side in summer 2014, and Coman was named as skipper on a permanent basis ahead of the 2014–15 season.
After big improvements to Edinburgh's form in 2014–15, during which he led the team to the final of the European Rugby Challenge Cup, Coman signed a contract extension which will see him remain in the Scottish capital until at least the end of the 2015–16 season.
