LETHBRIDGE - Fred Trinh, head coach of the University of Lethbridge Pronghorn women’s soccer, has resigned for personal reasons following one of the most successful season in the program’s history.

Executive Director Ken McInnes says Trinh has been a great advocate and supporter for their women’s soccer program.

“He was with the program for a long time and has been an important part of its success over the years, especially the last two as the head coach,” he continued. “We’ll miss him here in Pronghorn Athletics, but he has left the program in a better place than when he started.

“You can never thank someone enough for their dedication and hard work on behalf of our student athletes.”

Trinh was a long-time assistant coach, and on Jan. 29, 2015 he was named interim coach. The interim tag was removed the following February.

Over his three seasons as head coach, Trinh compiled a record of 10-25-7.

This past season, he led the Pronghorns to their best record in ten years, finishing with a 5-7-2 record and a second playoff appearance in the last three seasons.

The 16 goals scored was also the most they have scored as a team since the 2005 season.

Trinh wanted to thank the University of Lethbridge Athletic Department for entrusting him with the program over the last three years, and added that over those three years they’ve made some great strides.”

“I leave on a high note and I want all my players, past and present, to know that I am very proud to be a part of their university journey. I also want to make sure to acknowledge my wife, Rebecca, because without her standing beside me over the last 17 years that I have been involved with this program would not have been possible,” Trinh concluded.

Assistant coaches Ilsa Wong and Jack Reddy have been elevated to interim co-coaches.
