Steve Trimble Named O'Connell's New Football Coach
Steve Trimble has been named Bishop OConnell High Schools new head coach for varsity football, succeeding longtime veteran Darrell Snyder. Snyder announced his retirement recently after two stints at the helm for the Knights 1974 through 1981 and 1994 through 2002.
Trimble, 44, served on Snyders staff for the past three years. He was defensive coordinator for the varsity this past season after a year as a defensive assistant. He assisted at the freshman level in 1999.
"I am excited about the opportunity to be the head football coach at Bishop OConnell High School," Trimble said. "The OConnell football program will strive to be competitive in the always-tough Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) year in and year out.
"I would like to thank Darrell Snyder for allowing me to be a part of his football staff for the past three seasons," he said. "Darrell has been an example of everything that is right about high school athletics."
Trimble, a 1980 graduate of the University of Maryland and former Terrapin standout on the gridiron, has played and coached in the professional ranks. He played for the Denver Broncos (1981-83), the USFL Denver Gold (1984-85) and the Denver Dynamite of the Arena League (1987). He was on the coaching staffs of the New Orleans Saints, New York Jets and Detroit Drive (Arena League).
Trimble also has made coaching stops at the University of Colorado, Howard University, New Mexico Highlands University and DeMatha Catholic High School.
