Few coaches in the FCS ranks can match the season veteran Tribe defensive line coach Trevor Andrews turned in a year ago, as he mentored a pair NFL draft picks from his unit that was among the nationís most feared groups (as witnessed by the 56 TFLs and 25.5 QB sacks his starting four produced).
While his on-field development was outstanding, Andrews, a 10-year member of the Tribe staff, also has the responsibilities of overseeing the Tribeís recruiting efforts. Andrews has been in both roles for the last seven years and has affected significant change and improvement in both areas.
In addition to coordinating the Tribeís recruiting, Andrews also serves as W&Mís chief recruiter in Washington, D.C., as well as eastern Maryland, North Jersey and New England.
Prior to his current responsibilities, Andrews worked as a defensive assistant for three seasons. Andrews assisted with the Tribe cornerbacks in 2003 and helped groom first-team all-league selection Billy Parker, who signed as a free agent with the Carolina Panthers upon graduation.
As mentioned, most recently, Andrews developed a pair of Tribe players into NFL prospects; defensive end Adrian Tracy (New York Giants, sixth-round) and tackle Sean Lissemore (Dallas Cowboys, seventh-round). Both were First-Team All-CAA selections in 2009 and each were selected to numerous All-America squads. Tracy finished his career as a multiple-time all-America and first-team all-conference selection.
Additionally, Andrews helped defensive end Adam OíConnor to Third-Team Associated Press All-America honors in 2004. OíConnor also earned all-league status in both 2004 and 2005 and eventually signed a free agent contract with the Minnesota Vikings during the summer of 2007.
Andrews came to the College after spending the 2000 season as an assistant at Randolph-Macon College, where he worked as the secondary coach and special teams coordinator.
As a three-year letterwinner at defensive back for the University of Dayton, Andrews was a member of three conference championship teams with the Flyers and played on Daytonís undefeated 1996 squad (11-0).
After earning his B.S. in physical education from Dayton in 1998, Andrews accepted a graduate position at Illinois Wesleyan University and coached the secondary while working towards his graduate degree in athletic administration.
Andrews is engaged to Danielle Weinlein and resides in Williamsburg.
