David Koch was an assistant on the Centennial High football team for 10 seasons, but served the past two seasons as the offensive line coach at Rocky Mountain High.
The 45-year-old former Boise State left tackle was Centennial’s offensive line coach for three years and the offensive coordinator for seven years under longtime coach Lee Neumann, who resigned in March.
“I’ve had an opportunity to coach under lots of great coaches and it’s a career goal of mine to be a head coach,” Koch said. “I obviously have a lot of history at Centennial and I just know it’s a great opportunity.”
Koch has taught government and social studies in both the Boise and Meridian school districts.
“I just think it’s quite an honor to be able to have the opportunity to follow Coach Neumann and work toward bringing prominence back to Centennial football,” Koch said.
Neumann coached the Patriots for 24 seasons, making 18 state playoff appearances with three championships (1996, 1999, 2003) and an overall record of 168-83.
