Former Patriots and Denver Broncos center Dan Koppen has joined the football coaching staff at Bishop Hendricken High in Warwick, R.I. as a volunteer.

Hendricken head coach Keith Croft announced the addition of Koppen via Twitter.

Koppen, 34, won two Super Bowls as Tom Brady's center from 2003-2011. He played for the Broncos and snapped for Peyton Manning in 2013. He tore his ACL in Broncos training camp and was on injured reserve last season. Koppen played at Boston College, lives in Rhode Island and his father-in-law is former Raiders running back Mark van Eeghen, who played football at Cranston (R.I.) West High.
