Former Triton, Glassboro football coach Jim Doyle dies at 92


Jim Doyle, who guided Triton football through its heyday, died on Thursday.  He was 92 years old.

Jim Doyle certainly knew how to tell a story.

While many of his tales were inspiring, others ended with his signature raspy laugh.

Whether the tone is serious or comedic, “Coach Doyle” has made a lasting impression on generations of its athletes and Triton Regional High School students, many of whom can still recite the stories.

Doyle, a football and track and field head coach and physical education teacher for more than 35 years, died on Thursday. He was 92 years old.

“He coached me 44 years ago and the lessons I learned from him still stuck with me today,” said Tony Trongone, a 1980 Triton graduate and all-conference defensive end, who is now superintendent of the Millville School District.

“Coach Doyle gave the best speeches. When he gave that speech before a game, you would run through a wall for him. … He was a class act and he was Triton’s man.
