Geoff Arnold is an Assistant Coach for the Rider University Men's Basketball Team
Arnold spent 11 years on Phil Martelli’s staff at Saint Joseph’s. A former Hawk standout, he also served as an assistant at Saint Joseph’s for four years from 1993 to 1996, giving him a total of 15 years on the Hawks’ bench. That stint included one year with Martelli, who was in his first season (1995-96) as head coach, where the Hawks went 26-6 and reached the NIT Championship game. Arnold was also a volunteer assistant coach on Jim Boyle’s staff in 1988-89.
Arnold was the associate head coach at Drexel University for seven years. While there, he was instrumental in the Dragons’ recruiting efforts that helped them reach the postseason four times in seven seasons, including a 23-9 record in 2006-07.
Arnold left Saint Joseph’s in 1997 to join former Hawk teammate Bruiser Flint at the University of Massachusetts, serving on Flint’s staff for five years. He then returned to Philadelphia in 2001 when Flint was named head coach at Drexel.
Arnold, who was a senior tri-captain for the 1985-86 Saint Joseph’s team that won the Atlantic 10 Championship, recorded 26 wins and earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament. During his senior season, which was Martelli’s first as an assistant coach at SJU, the guard averaged 8.9 points and led the team with 134 assists. He was inducted into the Saint Joseph’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 1992.
Originally from Sharon Hill, Pa. and Darby Township High School, Arnold is the uncle of former Saint Joseph’s star Langston Galloway. In 2018, Arnold was inducted into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame – Delaware County Chapter.
Arnold and his wife, Dr. Stephanie Tryce, reside in Philadelphia. They have a daughter, Gabrielle.
