Trent Hinton, head women's soccer coach at YC, will be stepping down from his coaching duties at the end of the current season and taking on a new role in the athletic department. Hinton will pair his current part-time role of sports information director with the role of game day operations manager—a position left void when Brian Walth became head baseball coach.
“The NAIA list of future initiatives includes a potential requirement for schools to have a full-time SID. We need to be ready for that and this year’s changes made it attainable,” said Jared Stark, athletic director. Hinton has held the SID role for the past nine years in a part-time capacity, but with the increase in sports offered at YC and number of athletes participating, it was necessary to expand the position, says Stark. When Coach Walth became head baseball coach, Stark took the opportunity to restructure and combine the positions.
Since Stark has taken over as director of athletics, three sports and two JV programs have been added, amounting to more than 100 additional athletes and many more home competitions to operate. "We are thankful for what Trent has done for the women's soccer program over the last seven years,” Stark says.
“He has been a great asset to our department. We needed a role filled and I approached Hinton about filling it right away because of his knowledge and expertise. He will tell you it wasn't an easy decision because of his passion for his team. I know the soccer program will miss him, but our department will only get stronger keeping him on board."
During Hinton's tenure as coach, the women’s soccer team made three postseason appearances including one trip to the Unaffiliated Conference Tournament in Helena, Montana. The team also claimed several all-conference awards and academic honors.
"I am very excited to accept this new position and help our athletic department continue to grow,” says Hinton. “It will be tough leaving behind a program I care about dearly and the girls that I have coached, but I feel this is a great opportunity to find another coach who can build on the success the program has had."
