Saint Joseph's men’s basketball coach Phil Martelli is currently in Finland with his sons Phil and Jimmy, to take part in a clinic at the Basketball Club Puhu Juniorit. The clinic is organized by former Hawks player Artur Surov, a 7-footer who graduated in 2007. The Martellis are joined by Davidson head coach Bob McKillop and his assistant coach and son, Matt. Phil Martelli Jr., who spent the past five years at Niagara, enters his first season as an assistant coach at the University of Delaware under former SJU assistant Monte Ross. Jimmy is in his second season as an assistant at Rutgers, under Mike Rice, another former Hawks assistant.

 

Martelli's list of former players as coaches just got longer as Mike Farrelly was named an assistant coach at Niagara to round out Joe Mihalich's staff. Farrelly was a member of the Hawks from 2000 to 2003. Earlier this summer, former Hawks standout Bill Phillips (2000-02) was named the director of basketball operations at James Madison, where he'll work for another former SJU assistant coach, Matt Brady.
