Coaches Paul Roeder and Travis Kinn to step away from the court

Mar 19, 2024 | Sports | 0 comments


While the 2023-2024 basketball season is wrapping up, changes are on the horizon for the 2024-2025 season. Paul Roeder, the Monroeville Eagles Boys Basketball coach, announced on Monday, March 11, that he will be stepping down from his head coaching position. Travis Kinn, head coach of the Tiffin Columbian Tornadoes, also resigned from his position.

Roeder led Monroeville for six seasons with a record of 73-68. That is second in all-time wins at Monroeville. Jerry Everhart leads with 118-81 during the years 1963-1972. Roeder is a 1976 graduate of Monroeville High School. Under Roeder, Monroeville won sectional titles in 2022 and 2023. Monroeville was also the Firelands Conference runner-up, going 11-3 in 2021-2022. Roeder and his wife, Denise, will be moving to Columbus to be closer to their two daughters and three grandchildren. Roeder’s daughter, Brittany Peck, just finished up her first season as the head girls basketball coach for Columbus-Bishop Ready. Paul Roeder will become a varsity assistant on her staff.

Travis Kinn was the Tiffin Columbian Tornadoes head coach for nine seasons, and he compiled a record of 105-107.

“This is the right time to step away, take a break, and see what other life opportunities are out there,” Kinn said.

Kinn’s tenure got off to a slow start with four straight losing seasons before the Tornadoes would have at least 15 wins in the following four years. The Tornadoes record this season was 9-14.
