Kevin Copp, a familiar face in the Temple University Athletics Department, returned to the athletics staff in August 2019 taking a brand new role within the department as the associate athletic director of video production. In between his stints with the Owls, Copp served as assistant executive director of digital content and communications for the Ivy League.
Copp oversees all video production and event broadcasts, including live and on-demand event streaming of games, press conferences, and special events. The American Athletic Conference and ESPN began a 12-year media rights extension starting in the 2020-21 season, with a new emphasis on live streaming through ESPN+, ESPN’s industry-leading direct-to-consumer sports streaming service.
While at the Ivy League, Copp was responsible for the day-to-day management of the League’s partnership with ESPN, which showcases over 1,100 events annually on a variety of ESPN platforms. In addition, he managed the League’s on-demand video library and oversaw all broadcasts at Ivy League postseason events.
In his previous three-year stint at Temple, Copp was responsible for overseeing the video services department, which provided content on OwlSports.com as well as in-venue video boards. Additionally, he managed the production of live broadcasts for OwlsTV and served as on-camera talent and as a play-by-play broadcaster.
Prior to working at Temple, Copp spent six months as the director of new media for Towson. At Towson, Copp created and supervised the production of all video content for TowsonTigers.com and the Towson Athletics YouTube channel.
Before his time at Towson, Copp spent five years at the University of Georgia, where he worked as a video production assistant before serving as the video production manager for Georgia IMG Sports Marketing. At Georgia, Copp was responsible for producing and editing video, served as on-camera and play-by-play talent, and oversaw live broadcasts for six sports.
Copp interned for Georgia IMG Sports Marketing prior to his time at Georgia. He also worked as a play-by-play broadcaster for the SEC Network and the Georgia Bulldog Radio Network.
A 2010 graduate from the University of Georgia, Copp finished with a bachelor’s degree in English while interning with the athletic communications departments at Temple and UMass-Dartmouth.
