The “interim” has been dropped from Nick Derba’s title.

Derba, who replaced Steve Trimper after Trimper left the University of Maine’s baseball program in December, has become the institution’s 25th head coach.

Trimper left to become the head coach at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida.

Derba’s post will be effective July 1, University of Maine Director of Athletics Karlton Creech said in a news release Friday.

“I’m very excited but relief is more of what I’m feeling right now,” Derba, 31, said late Friday morning. “I’m ready to go. I want to keep pushing the program in the right direction.”

Dear John,

Today’s New York Times at page A 19 has an article:”After a Crash in Times Square, Going the Extra Mile to Help a Victim’s Family.” About a NYPD Sgt, and the people of the New Jersey Town of Dunellen, who went
above and beyond to help a family in need.

A heartwarming piece.
