Phil Martelli Biography, Background, and Speaker Profile

The 2007-08 Hawks reached the Atlantic 10 Championship game for the third time in four years and earned the program's 19th bid to the NCAA Tournament, and Martelli's fifth.

One of the more colorful coaches in the nation, Martelli's personality, wit and accessibility have always made him a media favorite. His popularity grew to an even higher level in 2004, as the Hawks remained unbeaten and the coach was besieged by media requests from all over the country. Martelli remained as accommodating as ever and the Saint Joseph's story was well documented by the Philadelphia press and told by countless media outlets nationwide.

A 1976 graduate of Widener, Martelli began his career on Hawk Hill with SJU's 1985-86 NCAA Tournament team. In his decade as an assistant, he was part of the Hawks' NIT teams in 1992-93 and 1994-95. After 10 years as an assistant at Saint Joseph's, Martelli was named the 14th coach in school history on July 20, 1995, and just the third non-alumnus to follow in the storied tradition of SJU coaches.
