High school and minors

Trembley taught and coached baseball for three years (1977–1979) at Daniel Murphy High School in Los Angeles and managed for five years (1980–84) at Antelope Valley College in the Los Angeles area.

He began his career in professional baseball as a Los Angeles area scout for the Chicago Cubs in 1984. The next season, he became an instructor in the Cubs minor league system until June, when he was named to coach at their Wytheville club in the Appalachian League. Trembley managed in the minors every year since, except for 1990 when he served as director of the day-to-day operation of Pittsburgh's minor league complex and spring training facility at Bradenton, Florida. He began his managing career with the independent Kinston team in the Class A Carolina League in 1986. He managed one winter at Navajoa in the Mexican Pacific League. Trembley joined the Pirates organization in 1987, guiding AA Harrisburg to the Eastern League title and being named the loop's Manager of the Year. He also coached third base for two years for Magallanes in the Venezuelan Winter League. He spent one year as manager of San Diego's AA Wichita team before rejoining the Cubs organization, where he managed nine years (1994–2002) at three different levels. Trembley earned his second league title and Manager of the Year honor in 1995 when he guided Class A Daytona to the Florida State League title and also was named Manager of the Year in the Southern League in 1999 after guiding AA West Tennessee to a pair of first place finishes before losing in the playoffs.

Trembley began his career with the Orioles at AA Bowie in 2003. In his first season with Bowie, he was named winner of the organization's Cal Ripken, Sr. Player Development Award. In two years at Bowie, his teams went 142–141. Trembley managed the Orioles' AAA team at Ottawa in 2005 and 2006 combining to go 143–144. He was named the bullpen coach prior to the 2007 season.

Orioles manager

Trembley became interim manager on June 18, 2007, following Sam Perlozzo's dismissal. He was formerly the bullpen coach for the Orioles. On August 22, the interim tag was removed as his contract was extended to manage the Orioles through the 2008 season [1]. In his first year managing the Orioles he finished with a record 40-53. He is currently the only manager in Major League Baseball to not have played professional baseball.

On September 5, 2008, the Baltimore Orioles exercised their option on manager Dave Trembley through the 2009 season. The team also extended their team option on Trembley for 2010.
