New Fire Football Coach Hired

Holy Family hires UST assistant coach to lead football program

Holy Family Catholic High School is pleased to announce the hiring of Tim Triplett as the school’s new head football coach. Triplett comes to Holy Family with 12 years of college football coaching experience, at Division I, II, and III levels, most recently as an assistant coach for Glenn Caruso at the University of St. Thomas.

Caruso supports Triplett’s move to Holy Family, stating, “We are tremendously excited for Tim and his opportunity at Holy Family. Tim has been a big part of our success and culture here at St. Thomas. We look forward to watching him bring those core principles to Holy Family. We are big believers in teaching our young men the most important life lessons through the sport of football; Tim takes that responsibility very seriously, and I think that the future of Holy Family Catholic will benefit from his vision.”

Triplett leaves his current position as the recruiting coordinator and wide receiver coach at UST to lead the Fire Football program and make the transition to working with high school student-athletes. “The high school experience has a significant impact on the rest of their lives. It is my charge to create an environment where they can thrive and embrace the experience in a manner befitting a first-class football program and Catholic community.”

In addition to his four years at UST, Triplett’s coaching resume includes football programs at several D1, D2, and D3 Programs: University of South Dakota (2010-2014), South Dakota State University in Brookings (2009), Wayne State University (2007 and 2008), and Cornell College in Iowa (2006).

For Triplett, the son of former University of South Dakota Head Coach Dave Triplett, family and football have intertwined throughout his life. Dave Triplett served as the head football coach at USD from 1979-1988, leaving as the second-winningest coach in school history, and was a 2003 inductee into the University’s Athletic Hall of Fame.  Tim, along with his two brothers, all went on to play college football.

Holy Family Activities Director Nick Tibesar is thrilled to snag such a highly credentialed coach to lead the program.  “I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Tim into our Holy Family community.  His experience as a key contributor to a winning culture at a flagship Catholic university in our area makes him the ideal person to lead the Fire Football program into the future.  Tim’s football acumen is impressive, but he also comes to us with a clear understanding of what it means to lead young men during an important time in their lives. Additionally, his college recruitment experience will be invaluable to our student-athletes as they look to make connections to college programs.”

Triplett officially begins his work at Holy Family on June 1 with the summer conditioning programs and Holy Family’s youth football camp with NFL MVP Rich Gannon. He will also support all HF activities in the role of Assistant Activities Director.
