Trinity hires Cathcart

Location can mean everything when it comes to real estate. It can also be the reason a person leaves on job for another.

CathcartThat was the case with Rob Cathcart, who resigned as Pembroke Academy’s varsity football coach last week to become the varsity head coach at Trinity.

“The biggest thing is geography,” Cathcart said when asked what intrigued him about the Trinity job. ” I live in New Boston and my office in on Hanover Street in Manchester.

“I was very happy at Pembroke. I would have been happy moving forward and working there a number of years. This kind of fell in my lap. I wasn’t even looking.”

Cathcart served as the football coach at Goffstown High School from 2002 to 2010 and led the Grizzlies to the Division III semifinals twice. He was the defensive coordinator at Bishop Guertin in Nashua for two seasons before he was hired to be Pembroke’s coach in 2015.

“He will run the program and we’re sure that he will carry on the fine Trinity tradition of winning football,” Trinity athletic director Chip Polak said.

Pembroke went 1-7 last season, when the Spartans entered the season with two players on their roster with varsity experience.

Cathcart replaces Steve Burns, who resigned in December after four seasons with the Trinity program.

“I know the numbers are down,” Cathcart said. “The biggest challenge will be getting participation in the program back up.”
