During his three years as Leavenworth's head coach Kopecky compiled a 7-21 record, including a playoff berth in 2011. The program's 4-5 record this past season marked its highest win total since 2004.
Previously Kopecky served as the head coach at St. Thomas Aquinas from 1997 through 2008. He quietly left Aquinas during the offseason in 2009, before landing at Leavenworth one season later.
For Leavenworth the search begins for what will be their fifth head coach of the past decade. The new head coach will inherit a solid core of players to work with, including senior running back Jason Randall, who was a First Team All-Sunflower League selection in 2012.
