Tim Koch (born February 1, 1989 in Dürrn ) is a German basketball player . Since 2006, Koch first played in youth teams like the BSG Ludwigsburg, later for their professional team in the top German division basketball Bundesliga . By means of a double license , Koch was meanwhile also active in the ProA for the cooperation partner and second division club Kirchheim Knights .


In his youth, Koch, like Nicolai Simon , who was two years older , played for the Grüner Stern club from Keltern . In 2006 he moved to BSG in Ludwigsburg , where he was on the one hand for the junior team in the newly founded youth basketball league (NBBL) and on the other hand in the BSG regional league team for the men. In the National Basketball League 2007/08 Koch was the first time in two brief appearances in the first team, which was then under the sponsors name EnBW changed its name , used in the German top flight. After his age-related retirement from the NBBL, Koch had five more appearances for the professional team in addition to his appearances in the regional league team in the 2008/09 season. In order to guarantee match practice at a high level, his double license was also used from the 2009/10 season on the Ludwigsburg cooperation partner VfL Knights from Kirchheim unter Teck , where he achieved two fourth places in the ProA . Koch was regularly used by the Knights, but did not get beyond an average playing time of ten minutes per game.

After Koch had only two appearances in the first division under coach Markus Jochum in the 2010/11 season , he came back more and more, especially after the change of coach to Steven Key in December 2011, so that he was in the basketball Bundesliga 2011/12 with 25 The team started eight times, with an average playing time of ten minutes per game over the season. After almost avoiding relegation, the team in the basketball Bundesliga 2012/13 slipped back into the table basement, so that after another coach change, John Patrick became coach in January 2013. The Ludwigsburg remained at the end of the season on a relegation place and could only ensure relegation by purchasing a wildcard . Of the players whose contracts had expired due to relegation, Koch's contract was one of the few to be extended by two years with the team now trading as MHP Riesen. Nevertheless, Koch's operating times under coach Patrick tended to decrease. After an average of seven minutes per game in 19 appearances in the 2013/14 season , in which Ludwigsburg were able to move into the first play-off round of the German championship as eighth in the table , Koch came to less in the first half of the following season 2014/15 than three minutes' average operating time.

For the 2015/2016 season, Koch left the MHP Riesen and switched back to the Kirchheim Knights in the ProA .
