John Coppolella is an American baseball front office executive who serves as the general manager of the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Upon graduation from the University of Notre Dame,[1] Coppolella was offered a job by Intel. He chose to continue exploring opportunities in baseball, and turned Intel down for an internship with the New York Yankees, working for the MLB team from 2000 through 2006.[2][3] He then joined the Braves as their director of baseball operations. He held that position until 2011, when he served as director of professional scouting. In 2012, Coppolella was promoted to assistant general manager. After Frank Wren was fired as the Braves' general manager after the 2014 season, John Hart took over as the president of baseball operations of the Braves,[4] with Coppolella heavily involved in the team's transactions,[5] including the trades of Craig Kimbrel and Jason Heyward. The Braves announced on October 1, 2015, that Coppolella was promoted to general manager, and signed to a four year contract.[6][7]
