Jerheme Urban is in his fourth season at the helm of the Trinity Tigers football team.

Coach Urban, who also coaches quarterbacks, was appointed to the top position in November 2013, after serving as assistant coach for two seasons. The 2003 Trinity graduate took over the program from Trinity Athletic Hall of Fame member Steve Mohr, who retired after 24 seasons as head coach.

In the three seasons under Coach Urban’s leadership, 32 players have earned All-Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference accolades and one standout was named SCAC Defensive Player of the Year (on two occasions). Seven Tigers have been elected Post-Season All-Americans. Four Trinity players have been selected for the All-Region Team and three were named Freshman All-Stars.

The Tigers have amassed a record of 17-13 over the past three campaigns. The 8-2 mark of the 2015 season doubled the number of victories from the 2014 slate.

Coach Urban was a nine-year veteran of the National Football League. His playing experience in the NFL, and at Trinity, proved to be invaluable when he joined the Tigers coaching staff in 2012. During his NFL career, the talented wide receiver played for the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals (including the 2008 Super Bowl team), and Kansas City Chiefs. Coach Urban completed his NFL career with 91 receptions for 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns.

As a Trinity student-athlete from 1999-2003, Coach Urban excelled in football and track & field. He holds school records in career touchdowns scored and single-season touchdown receptions. Coach Urban is second in career and single-season receiving yards.

Coach Urban was a three-time All-SCAC honoree and was elected to All-America Teams by D3football.com (First Team) and the Football Gazette (Second Team). He was a key player on the 2002 Tiger football team which advanced to the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, the NCAA Division III Championship game.

On the track, Coach Urban was tabbed as the SCAC Male Track & Field Athlete of the Year four straight times from 2000-2003. It marked the first time in conference history a SCAC athlete achieved that feat. He also is a Trinity record-holder in the 400 meters, 4x400-meter relay, and the triple jump.

Coach Urban earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and history from Trinity. Shortly after graduation, Coach Urban signed an NFL contract.

While at Trinity, Coach Urban met his future wife, the former Emily Goodwin, a 2004 graduate who was also a Tiger standout in track & field. The couple has a daughter, Liesl, and twin sons, Luke and Barrett.

A native of Victoria, Texas, Coach Urban attended Stroman High School.

In his spare time, Coach Urban also enjoys his status as an amateur barber.
