Coaching career[edit]


Trinchieri was the assistant head coach with the Italian League club Olimpia Milano from 1998 to 2004. He then became the head coach of the Italian club Vanoli Basket from 2004 to 2007. He helped Vanoli get promoted from the Italian 3rd Division to the Italian Second Division. After that, he was the head coach of the Italian club Juvecaserta Basket, which was also in the Italian Second Division at that time.

His next head coaching job was also in the Italian Second Division, with Veroli Basket, during the 2008–09 season. With Veroli Basket, he won the Italian Second Division Cup title, and he was named the Italian Second Division's Coach of the Year in 2009.[1]

After that, he became the head coach of the Italian team Cantù.[2] As the head coach of Cantù, he was named the Italian League Coach of the Year in both 2010 and 2011. He also won the Italian Supercup with Cantù, in the 2012–13 season. In 2013, he became the head coach of the Russian VTB United League club UNICS Kazan.[3] With UNICS, he was the European-wide 2nd-tier level league EuroCup's Coach of the Year in the 2013–14 season.

In July 2014, it was announced that Trinchieri would be the new head coach of the German club Brose Bamberg.[4] On October 4, 2015, he extended his contract with the club, until the end of the 2016–17 season.[5] With Brose, he won the German national league championship, the Basketball Bundesliga, in the 2014–15, 2015–16, and 2016-2017 seasons. On February 19, 2018, Trinchieri was released from his head coaching position with Brose, after the team lost 12 of their last 15 games.[6]
