Born in Athens, Kotsolis joined Panathinaikos as an 18-year-old youth player in 1997 and made sporadic appearances over his first five seasons at Panathinaikos. The imposing form of first-choice keeper Antonios Nikopolidis kept Kotsolis at bay for most of that time. Kotsolis, then the great hope of Greek goalkeeping, has waited patiently for an opportunity to break into the Panathinaikos first team, but Nikopolidis was always too good to be a second-choice. He made his professional debut for Panathinaikos on 13 April 1999, in a Greek Cup game against Athinaikos.
In 2005 he was transferred to Larissa where he made a total of 121 appearances, playing there until June 2009.He won the Greek Cup in the season 2006/2007, beating his former club Panathinaikos for 1-2 in the Panthessaliko Stadium in [Volos|].
He is a former Greece under-21 international and team captain at the 2002 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship. He is also a senior international with Greece, making 5 appearances since 2005.
