Trilli arrived at North Texas after spending two seasons at Arkansas Little Rock under head coach Wes Flanigan. Trilli spent the past year at the director of basketball operations and one season as the video coordinator at Little Rock.
Trilli came to Little Rock in Sept. 2015 after spending the previous seven years at Midwestern State. After three years as a member of the basketball team, he spent two seasons on the MSU staff as a graduate assistant before serving as a second assistant in his final two years.
Between his time at Little Rock and MSU, Trilli has gone to eight straight NCAA Tournaments, with each of those teams advancing beyond the first round. Over the same span, those teams have won regular-season championships in six of eight years.
He helped the Mustangs to three regular-season Lone Star Conference Championships and four NCAA Division II Tournament appearances while on staff. In his first season at Little Rock, the Trojans won a program-record 30 games while winning Sun Belt Conference regular-season and tournament championships before earning a bid to the NCAA Tournament.
As a student-athlete, Trilli attended Garden City Community College as a freshman before going on to earn three letters on the Midwestern State men's basketball team. He led the Mustangs to consecutive NCAA Division II Elite Eight appearances in 2010 and 2011. MSU's national ranking rose as high as No. 3 in the 2009-10 season as the Mustangs won a program-record 31 games.
Trilli's father, Vic, is the Director of Athletics and Vice President of Student Affairs at Newman University. He served as head men's basketball coach at North Texas from 1997-01 and Lon Morris College from 1981-89.
Trilli earned his Bachelor of Science in Sport and Fitness Management and Master of Education in Sports Administration in 2015, both from Midwestern State.
