Scott Chouinard has resigned as the Copley football coach after five seasons on the Indians sideline.

Chouinard cited spending more time with his family, including his wife, Sarah, and their two sons, Carsten and Grady, as one reason for stepping aside.

“It is time,” Chouinard wrote on his Twitter page. “It is time for the Copley football family to have a new voice. It is time for someone new to take the groundwork we have laid in the past five years and take it to the next level.”

Chouinard posted a 30-22 record at Copley with two Division II playoff appearances. The Indians went 6-4 in 2014, 9-2 in 2015, 8-3 in 2016, 4-6 in 2017 and 3-7 in 2018. Copley shared the 2015 Suburban League American Conference title with Aurora.

Chouinard is a graduate of Kent Roosevelt (2000) and the College of Wooster (2004), and played quarterback at both schools. He was an assistant coach at Northwestern for three seasons under Mike Thut, and then was an assistant coach at Kent Roosevelt for seven seasons, one under Ed Becker and six under John Nemec, before going to Copley.

Chouinard thanked his family, Copley Superintendent Brian Poe, Thut, Nemec and all the players and families he has met through coaching.
