|Title:||Assistant Coach, Tight Ends|
Trevor Durham enters his second season as an assistant football coach at Washington University in St. Louis. Durham joined Larry Kindbom's staff at WashU prior to the 2016 season, and his tight ends played a vital role in the Bears offense maintaining its tradition as one of the top in the nation. In addition to coaching tight ends for the 2017 campaign, Durham adds the title of special team’s coordinator.
His first season on the Danforth Campus saw the Bears finish with the second most wins in school history and claimed a berth to the 2016 NCAA Division III Playoffs for just the third time in the program's existence. In addition, the Bears claimed both the Southern Athletic Association (SAA) and the University Athletic Association (UAA) conference championships.
The tight ends contributed to an offense that finished in the Top-25 in NCAA Division III in six different categories, and produced the nation’s best tight end in the statistical categories of receptions, receptions per game, and receiving yards. Senior Matt Page earned First-Team AFCA All-America honors after finishing fourth at any NCAA level in receiving yards by a tight end and tied for fifth in receptions. Durham’s role in special teams did not go unnoticed either as the Bears finished second in net punt.
Durham arrived on the Danforth Campus after a four-year playing career at NCAA Division II Quincy University (2008-13). He started at quarterback as a redshirt freshman for the Hawks and helped Quincy to its first ever victory over a NCAA Division I-AA school (Indiana State University). Durham also combined to break the school record for most passing yards in a game (498) and touchdowns passes in a game (6) vs. William Penn in 2010.
He was a member of the 2006 Alabama Class 6A State Championship team at Prattville High School, and also a member of the 2007 Mississippi Valley Conference Championship team and IHSA Playoff Qualifier at Triad High School (Illinois). Durham graduated from Triad in 2008.
He graduated from Quincy University in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in biological sciences with pre-professional concentrations and a minor in chemistry. Durham was valedictorian while obtaining his master's degree in sports science and rehabilitation with emphasis in nutrition and human performance from Logan University in 2015.
He spent one season as an intern assistant strength and conditioning coach at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and also served as assistant girls’ varsity soccer coach at Riverview Gardens High School from 2015-17.
Durham is officially a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
