Kevin Koger

Offensive Quality Control Coach

Biography

Kevin Koger is in his second year as an offensive quality control coach for the Packers, having been named to the position on Feb. 15, 2019. Koger joined the team after serving three seasons (2016-18) as the wide receivers coach at Eastern Kentucky.

In his current role in Green Bay, Koger works with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett with a focus on coaching the tight ends. 

In 2019, Koger was part of an offensive staff that helped the Packers to a No. 2 ranking in the league in giveaways with just 13, which tied the single-season franchise record set in 2014. The Packers posted 18 rushing TDs on the season, which was tied for No. 7 in the NFL and was the most by Green Bay since 2009 (20). Green Bay's rushing attack was led by RB Aaron Jones, who posted a career-high 1,084 rushing yards and a career-best 16 rushing TDs, which was tied for the most in the NFL in '19 and was the second most in team history behind only FB Jim Taylor (19 in 1962). 

During the 2018 season at Eastern Kentucky, Koger added special teams coordinator to his list of duties. The Colonels' special teams unit ranked No. 14 in the country with two blocked punts, led the Ohio Valley Conference with 23.2 yards per kickoff return and was one of 10 in the nation that did not allow a blocked kick.

In 2017, Eastern Kentucky's receivers helped QB Tim Boyle throw for 2,134 yards, the fifth-highest single-season total in program history. As a team in 2017, the Colonels led the OVC in passing (2,377 yards) and completion percentage (59.6). Senior WR Ryan Markush earned All-OVC honors after finishing second in the conference in TD receptions (nine) and third in receiving yards (745).

In his first season at Eastern Kentucky in 2016, Koger helped two Colonels receivers rank among the top 15 in the conference in yards per reception – Devin Borders (15.4) finished eighth and Markush (13.6) ranked 14th. Borders was also seventh in the OVC in receptions (48) and eighth in receiving yards (739). With Koger's help, the offense tied the school record for points scored in a single game in a 67-30 victory at Austin Peay. 

Prior to coaching at Eastern Kentucky, Koger was a quality control coach at the University of Tennessee in 2015, working with the offensive line and wide receivers. He helped the Volunteers to a 9-4 record in 2015 and a second-place finish in the Southeastern Conference East Division with a 5-3 mark. It was Tennessee's first winning record in SEC play since 2007. Koger also helped mentor two linemen who earned All-SEC recognition in T Kyler Kerbyson and G Dylan Wiesman. 

Before moving to Tennessee, Koger worked as a graduate assistant for his alma mater, Michigan, in 2013-14, assisting with the tight ends and special teams. He helped develop TE Jake Butt early in his college career as a freshman and sophomore. Butt earned All-Big Ten Freshman Team honors from ESPN.com in 2013. He went on to set Michigan records for career receptions (138) and receiving yards (1,646) for a TE and won the John Mackey Award as a senior in 2016. The Denver Broncos selected Butt in the fifth round (145th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft.  

Koger began his coaching career as a tight ends/wide receivers coach at Saline (Mich.) High School in 2012.

Koger was a four-year letterman and three-year starter at tight end for the Wolverines (2008-11), appearing in 47 games with 30 starts. He totaled 59 receptions for 756 yards (12.8 avg.) and nine TDs in his collegiate career. He was a team captain and an All-Big Ten honorable mention selection by both the league's coaches and the media as a senior, and he earned his bachelor's degree in sports management from Michigan in 2012. 

Born Dec. 12, 1989, in Toledo, Ohio, Koger lives in Green Bay with his wife, Tiffany.
