Joe Koch, who coached the Oak Creek Knights from 1992 to 2005, will be inducted into the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Koch compiled a record of 145-60 in 19 years as a head coach, which includes stints at Whitefish Bay Dominican and Milwaukee Pius. He is currently an assistant at Brookfield Central.
He won a state championship, twice coached teams to state runner-up finishes and appeared in the state semifinal three other times. Five of his players went on to play in the NFL.
At Oak Creek, Koch went 107-36 before stepping down in 2006. His resignation came about the time an investigation turned up falsified documents for athletes transferring from Milwaukee Public Schools to Oak Creek, but Koch later said in an interview family health problems were the reason he stepped down.
He still works in the Oak Creek-Franklin School District, serving as a teacher at East Middle School.
Koch is part of a class of 19 people the WFCA will induct in March.
