The Trinity College men’s basketball team has announced the hiring of Trey Witter as an assistant coach for the upcoming 2021-22 season. The Bantams, coached by James Cosgrove, finished the 2019-20 season with a 17-9 overall record and reached the semifinals of the NESCAC Championship Tournament. Trinity is eager to begin the 2021-22 campaign after practicing throughout last year and participating in a few scrimmages during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Witter joins the Bantam coaching staff after spending the previous year as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at his alma mater, Springfield College. Witter was a four-year player and a two-year captain for the Pride, where he helped his team win two conference titles and reach the 2018 NCAA Final Four. Prior to his playing career at Springfield, Witter was also an All-State and Academic All-State honoree at Farmington High School and helped St. Thomas More Prep advance to the 2016 National Championship Final, where he was mentored by legendary coaches Duane Witter and Jere Quinn. Witter was a member of Springfield’s Student-Athlete Leadership Team while earning his bachelor’s degree in movement and sport studies. He is currently pursuing a master’s degree from Springfield in sport and exercise psychology.
