La Salle has hired Merlin Triplett as head coach of La Salle's boys soccer program. During the last five years, Triplett has served as a junior varsity coach in Central Catholic’s boys and girls programs. He also coached for the Eastside Timbers club program for a decade.
"I am excited to join La Salle as the news boys soccer head coach," said Triplett. "I'm a lifetime student of the game, have a track record of success in both developing players and driving a winning culture, and I am extremely excited about the future of the program and our continued success."
Triplett will replace Seth Altshuler, who coached the Falcons to the 5A state championship last year.
