He currently is serving as a health and physical education teacher for Troy City Schools, a position he has held since 2004.
“I have no doubt I have the passion and energy it takes to build on the outstanding tradition of Xenia athletics, and to move it forward into the future,” Kopp said in an emailed statement.
In addition to teaching, Kopp has served as the varsity baseball coach for Pleasant Hill Newton High School from 2014 to the present, and as the Troy varsity girls basketball coach from 2007 until now.
