The Security Center I am with wants to use transparent squid (using a bridge)
with Snort listening in on the traffic as it crosses the bridge.

Is this possible? If so, how?

sure... the question is which side of squid do you want to listen on...

the setup is no different than a normal setup, IIUC... you just monitor the wire 
going to the squid box from your network or you monitor the wire coming from the 
squid box to the internet...
