San Antonio - Trinity assistant football Coach Adam McGuire has been awarded a Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship.
Coach McGuire will spend part of the summer with the National Football League's Minnesota Vikings at their training camp, mini-camp, and organized team activities. The fellowship is named for the late NFL and college coach Bill Walsh and is designed for the professional development of minority coaches.
"It has been something I have been looking to for the past year," Coach McGuire said. "I want to see how coaches operate at the highest level. I am interested to see how the coaches stay organized and how they look at small details we may overlook on a day-to-day basis."
Coach McGuire has completed two years on Trinity's football coaching staff. Last season, he coached the Tiger defensive backs and special teams units on a full-time basis after joining Trinity's staff in 2017 as a part-time coach.
Coach McGuire credited Head Coach Jerheme Urban '03 in helping him to obtain the prestigious fellowship. Coach Urban contacted former Trinity football player Adam Zimmer '06, the Vikings' linebackers coach, who assisted in getting Coach McGuire's résumé to the Fellowship staff.
"This is a phenomenal experience for Adam," Coach Urban said. "The Fellowship will no doubt benefit his career, as well as our students."
