He took over the reins from Steve Mohr, who retired after 24 seasons as head coach.
Seven Tigers have been elected as post-season All-Americans, including Luke Packard in 2016. Thirty-three players have been tabbed for the All-Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Teams under Coach Urban's leadership. One standout was named SCAC Defensive Player of the Year, on two occasions. Twelve players have been selected as Pre-Season All-Americans, four made the All-Region Team, and three were named Freshman All-Stars.

During his nine-year NFL career, the talented wide receiver played for the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals (including the 2008 Super Bowl team), and Kansas City Chiefs. Coach Urban completed his NFL career with 91 receptions for 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns.
During his days on Trinity’s campus (1999-2003), Coach Urban was a versatile student-athlete, excelling in football and track and field.

On the track, Coach Urban was named the SCAC Male Track and Field Athlete of the Year four straight times, from 2000-2003. It marked the first time in conference history a SCAC athlete achieved that feat. He is also a Trinity record-holder in the 400 meters, 4x400-meter relay, and the triple jump.
