Tribbett signed with United Soccer League club Harrisburg City Islanders on March 24, 2015. Tribbett would become an immediate contributor to the City Islanders making 28 appearances and scoring 3 goals from the backline. His seasonal performance named him a 2015 USL Rookie of the Year finalist.
Tribbett moved to USL side Bethlehem Steel on January 29, 2016. After less than a month with Bethlehem Steel, Tribbett signed with Major League Soccer side Philadelphia Union, the parent club to Bethlehem Steel. Originally brought in as depth, Tribbett started the first match of the season against FC Dallas due to impressing in preseason and other roster injury concerns. His first goal for the Union was an equalizer at Orlando City. Tribbett's rookie season would show flashes of promise mixed with damning errors, notably in a home match losing 3-1 to Toronto FC, scoring the Union's only goal but costing several errors. The rookie would struggle against Toronto FC again in the opening game of the playoffs with defensive miscues leading to two of Toronto's three goals.
His appearances with the Union would be limited during the 2017 season making only one league appearance for the Union. Most of his time would be individual loans spells to Bethlehem Steel FC where he would make 12 appearances and scored once. At the end of the season, Tribbett was released from Union.
Tribbett returned to Harrisburg joining USL side Penn FC on March 2, 2018. He would resume his role as a leader in the newly branded team. Tribbett was appointed captain making 21 appearances and scoring 6 goals (second most for the team) at centerback.
