Kashirsky was a coach for the Windy City ThunderBolts of the Frontier League in 2007, then was named head coach at Robert Morris College while still serving as bench coach for Windy City.
On July 7, 2008, he was promoted to manager of the ThunderBolts replacing Brian Nelson. Nelson was fired for incuring a six-game suspension for a tirade against an umpire in a loss the previous day.
