Clint Trickett joined the Florida Atlantic University coaching staff in February of 2017 as the tight ends coach. In his first season, he saw sophomore Harrison Bryant earn Second Team All-Conference USA honors. Bryant was the team’s most consistent receiver, as he finished third in total receptions with 32, and led the Owls much of the season in touchdown receptions only to be surpassed, by one, late in the year when he was sidelined due to injury. In all, Trickett made use of four tight ends, each with a different skillset, and with John Raine, Dustin Bowens and D’Anfernee McGriff doing double work with assignments on the special teams units. Trickett will head into 2018 returning three players who accounted for 46 receptions (20 percent of the team’s production) and nearly a third of the team’s scoring receptions.

At East Mississippi
Trickett spent two seasons as the quarterbacks coach at East Mississippi Community College, one of the most successful JUCO programs in the country. Trickett’s role at EMCC, a three-time NJCAA National Champion, was primarily tutoring EMCC’s quarterbacks among other coaching responsibilities. Under Head Coach Buddy Stephens’ direction, EMCC has produced an NJCAA All-American quarterback every year dating back to 2008, including De’Andre Johnson who worked two seasons with Trickett and committed to the FAU program where Clint’s brother Travis served as offensive coordinator in the fall of 2016. Johnson signed with FAU a day after Head Coach Lane Kiffin was hired and two months prior to the addition of Clint Trickett to the staff.

Collegiate Playing Career
Splitting his collegiate playing career between WVU and FSU, Trickett completed 62 percent (470-of-758) of his passes for 5,837 career yards and 32 total touchdowns. The bulk of those impressive passing numbers came during the two years in Morgantown, where he threw for 4,890 total yards and 25 touchdowns in 19 games for the Mountaineers.

As a fifth-year senior at West Virginia, Trickett completed 67.1 percent (281-of-419) of his passes for 3,285 yards and 18 touchdowns in leading the Big 12 Conference and ranking 11th nationally in completion percentage. He also stood third in the Big 12 and No. 10 nationally with an average of 298.6 passing yards per contest. He was a Davey O'Brien Award semifinalist wearing a WVU uniform and was a member of the Garrett Ford Academic Honor Roll as well as the Big 12 Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll.

Trickett graduated from FSU in three years with a bachelor's degree in social sciences. Playing behind current Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel during his three years at Florida State, Trickett completed 62.3 percent (66-of-106) of his career passes for 947 yards and seven touchdowns. As a redshirt freshman in 2011, he threw for 675 yards and seven touchdowns in nine games, including starting assignments against Clemson and Wake Forest.

Prep Career
Trickett graduated early from high school with a 3.8 grade point average, after helping lead North Florida Christian School to a 29-6 composite three-year record while carrying a three-star ranking from both Rivals and Scout. In three seasons with the NFC Eagles, Trickett amassed more than 5,300 passing yards and tossed 59 career touchdowns for the perennial small school state power.
