Stefan Koch enters his second year as assistant rowing coach at Loyola.
Koch arrives at Loyola from Seattle, Wash, where he was a high school rowing coach and teacher.
In four years at the helm of the Mount Baker boys rowing program, Koch helped the squad qualify for the Youth National Championship three times and the team placed fourth in the nation in 2007. The team also won several Northwest Regional titles and competed against top youth teams from Canada. During that time, Koch also taught history at Eastside Catholic High School.
Prior to his time at Mount Baker, Koch served as head rowing coach and varsity girls coach at Robinson High School in Fairfax, Va., from 2000 to 2005. Koch also taught history and civics at the school while coaching.
His guidance brought the team to medal-winning finishes at the Virginia State Championships for five consecutive years, including a state title in the Varsity 4 in 2005. The team also scored a win at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta in the 2nd 8 category in 2002. He also led rowers to successful racing efforts at the Head of the Charles and Head of the Schuylkill regattas.
Koch began his coaching career as a college assistant coach, serving as the novice women's coach at George Mason University and before moving to the University of Connecticut. While at George Mason, Koch helped his student-athletes to a Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Crew Championship title.
Koch began rowing for J.E.B. Stuart High School in Fairfax, Va., and he rowed for four years at the University of Pennsylvania while receiving his bachelor's of arts degree in international relations. Koch also received a law degree from George Mason in 1997 and a master's degree in secondary education from George Mason as well. He enjoys travel and outdoor adventures such as mountain climbing.
