Chuck Priore:
Head Football Coach,

After leading the Trinity football team to a perfect 8-0 season, some people might think that Coach Priore would take some well-deserved time off to relax. After all, the Bantams hadn’t gone undefeated in a decade. Instead, he went right back to work.   

During his four years at the helm, Priore has guided the team to an impressive 23-9 record – including a 15-1 record the last two seasons. Last year Trinity shared the New England Small College Athletic Conference Championship with Williams; this year, the Bantams won it outright. They finished the season ranked third in the country among Division III schools and first in overall defense. Priore credits much of the team’s success to recruiting and preparation. “I’m really proud of our kids,” he says. “We had a lot of things go right for us this year, but that doesn’t change how hard the guys worked. Their dedication put us in a position to win.”

Before coming to Trinity, Priore served as the offensive line coach and offensive coordinator at the University of Pennsylvania. He has also coached at Union College and SUNY-Albany. In addition to football, Priore was the head lacrosse coach at both Union and Albany. A graduate of SUNY-Albany, where he was a three-year starter at fullback, he went on to earn a master’s degree in business education there in 1985. 

When he’s not busy figuring out how to keep the Bantams on the right track, Coach Priore enjoys running, working out, and spending time with his family. He and his wife, Lauren, have two children, Christopher and Cara.

“Success breeds success,” Priore says. “Trinity’s reputation as an outstanding academic institution allows us to recruit good students who are also good football players. Our student-athletes work hard in the classroom and on the field. The College gives us the resources to be successful, and we take it from there.”
