WARWICK, RI — Former New England Patriots offensive lineman Dan Koppen has joined Warwick-based online apparel and equipment tool provider SquadLocker as Enterprise Brand Advocate, and he’s taking questions Wednesday.
“As SquadLocker continues to eliminate the heavy tasks associated with selecting, purchasing, and delivering custom uniforms and gear so more time and attention can be focused on our youth, I look forward to working to get the good word out to help others,” said Koppen, who played in the NFL from 2003-2013, including five trips to the Super Bowl and two rings.
Koppen will help cultivate brand awareness for SquadLocker as the company eases the burden for sports leagues and schools in acquiring custom uniforms and apparel.
Koppen made his mark as a three-year starter at center for the Boston College Eagles before being selected by the Patriots in the 2003 NFL Draft. The Whitehall, Pennsylvania native took over as starting center as a rookie, winning back to back Super Bowls in his first two seasons. Koppen was named to the Patriots’ 2000s all-decade team in 2010, later released by the team in 2012. He played two seasons with the Denver Broncos in 2012-2013 before suffering a torn ACL and retiring.
After football, Koppen was an analyst for NBC Sports Boston and co-founded LineSider Brewing Company in East Greenwich. For the last four years, he has served on the board and coached in the East Greenwich Flag Football League. Along with his wife and three children, he resides in Rhode Island, headquarters of SquadLocker’s wholly-owned 50,000 square foot state of the art manufacturing facility where all the logistics and decoration for producing custom team uniforms and player gear are managed.
Koppen AMA Oct. 14
Koppen will host his first SquadLocker Ask Me Anything (AMA) webinar on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. EDT. He enjoys talking about his first memories of being coached, the coaching style and demands of Bill Belichick, pre-game anxiety and being ready to play, learning time management skills while playing for Boston College, and more.

“Dan has already changed the dynamic of our meetings with schools and youth sports organizations, and coaches and mentors love speaking with him as he connects at a very personal level,” said Gary Goldberg, CEO of SquadLocker. “I can’t wait to see Dan and the rest of our team continue to develop content that is informative and entertaining. Lots of exciting ideas are percolating.”
