Todd Trimmer, a former Yale basketball player, has been named the new boys basketball coach at Darien High School.
Trimmer, who most recently served as an assistant at Stamford and has 20 years of coaching experience at various levels, met with the Darien players this afternoon.
“I am extremely excited to become the next head basketball coach at Darien High School and I look forward to developing an outstanding culture that the student-athletes, school and Darien community will be proud of,” Trimmer said in a release sent out by the athletic department. “The hard work begins today with a great group of young men that want to be part of something special. I look forward to the challenges ahead and welcome new opportunities. In my immediate future, I am working on surrounding myself with great basketball coaches who are also strong role models.”
Trimmer is from Mentor, Ohio. He graduated from Mentor High School in 1989 and is a member of its sports Hall of Fame. Trimmer went on to become a four-year letterman at Yale and continues to serve on the school’s Basketball Association Board of Directors.
Darien finished 10-11 last year under Charoy Bentley, who stepped down after the season.
