Kroopnick named Video Coordinator at Northeastern

Men’s basketball head coach Bill Coen announced earlier this month that Northeastern alum David Kroopnick will join the staff as the program’s video coordinator.
Kroopnick spent the previous four seasons as a member of the men’s basketball coaching staff at MIT, highlighted by back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Tournament during the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons.

“I’m profoundly excited to join the distinguished Northeastern basketball program,” Kroopnick said. “The program under Coach Coen has had a long run of sustained success built on an incredible culture, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be a part of it. It feels great to be back on campus, and I’m looking forward to learning from such a talented and respected staff, and great group of student-athletes.”

Prior to joining the Engineers, Kroopnick coached for two seasons under head coach Lance Dottin at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. During those two seasons, the Falcons won back-to-back MIAA Division 1 State Championships, compiled a record of 48-1, and achieved national recognition in the 2016-2017 USA Today end-of-year rankings.
In the summer of 2019, Kroopnick gained international coaching experience as the assistant coach for Team USA at the 2019 European Maccabi Games in Budapest, Hungary. Kroopnick helped construct the roster, manage rotations, and served as the defensive coordinator as Team USA advanced to the Gold Medal Game undefeated before falling to Team Russia.

Prior to working at Cambridge Rindge and Latin, Kroopnick coached youth basketball in the Boston area at the Yawkey Boys and Girls Club of Roxbury, and the All for One Basketball Club.

Originally from Albany, N.Y., Kroopnick graduated from Northeastern University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in finance and management. While at Northeastern, Kroopnick served as the sports and finance director of the campus radio station, WRBB. He currently works for a data analytics software company in Boston.
