Service is his passion. Since he was young, he loved the sport of wrestling. He coached at the Division 1 level for over 20 years (University of Maryland, Stanford University, Lehigh University, Penn State University), allowing him to give back to the sport and the community that he loves so much. Coaching also afforded him the opportunity to have a positive impact on many things and meet many amazing people.

He has served a variety of organizations in many capacities during his career. He has worked for the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee, USA Wrestling, the National Collegiate Athletic Association, various coaching organizations and numerous committees on and around college campuses.

Kerry served two terms as the President of the Penn State Student Athlete Advisory Board. In this capacity, McCoy was instrumental in organizing Penn State student athletes to discuss NCAA and Penn State policies and recommendations. He also worked extensively with both the student government and campus administration. He represented Penn State at the Big Ten’s Student Advisory Committee meeting voicing the concerns and opinions of Penn State’s athletes representing 29 sports and was chosen as one of two student athletes to represent the Big Ten Conference at the NCAA Student Athlete Advisory Committee meetings. At the meeting he was elected the Vice Chair. After serving as Vice-Chair for a year, he served as Chair for the following year. He also sat on the NCAA Management Council as NCAA S.A.A.C Representative.
