Tırpan was appointed as Turkey coach in 1988, succeeding Mustafa Denizli. Under him, the Turks came very close to qualifying for the 1990 World Cup, but missed out qualification when they lost their final game 2-0 to the USSR.
After his spell in charge of Turkey, Tırpan was appointed Fenerbahçe SK coach, but lasted only five weeks in the job.
