Born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, Koffi started 26 games and appeared in one more with New York in 2019. Prior to the professional ranks, Koffi played for three seasons at the University of Virginia (2015-17) where he made three NCAA Tournament Appearances. In his final season with the Cavaliers, Koffi scored three times, including two game-winners, as he earned First Team All-ACC honors.
Koffi was on the radar at a young age, as he spent four years before college in the D.C. United Academy. That helped him earn a 2014 invite to the Generation Adidas Elite Soccer Program.
