US Colleges: Paul Assaiante retires!

Paul Assaiante, one of the greatest coaches in the history of intercollegiate athletics, has announced that he will end his 30-year tenure as the head coach of Trinity College men’s squash this year.  Assaiante guided the Bantams to 13 consecutive College Squash Association National titles from 1999 to 2011 and 252 wins in a row, giving Trinity ownership of the longest winning streak in the history of intercollegiate varsity sports.

Assaiante, a member of the College Squash Association Hall of Fame, also coached Trinity to national crowns in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2018 to give the Bantams 17 in a 22-year span.

The Bantams were also in the CSA Finals in 2012, 2014, 2019 and 2023.  Assaiante will continue to be an ambassador for Trinity Athletics, and the college will conduct a national search for its next head men’s squash coach.
