Army announced the hiring of Manhattanville head coach Arlen Marshall as its new assistant on staff under Brian Riley.
Marshall comes Army after coaching at Manhattanville, his alma mater, since 2006, and he’s been the head coach there since 2012..
“We are very excited to add Arlen to our coaching staff,” said head coach Rily. He brings a great knowledge of the game as well as a passion for recruiting. Most importantly I know he will be a great mentor and role model for our cadet-athletes.”
Marshall was just the second coach in Manhattanville’s history to amass over 100 victories. He leaves the program second all-time with 101 wins.
“I’m ecstatic to be joining the Army Hockey family,” said Marshall. “It’s an honor to work for West Point and I’m thankful to Coach Riley & Coach McKelvie for the opportunity. I’m looking forward to getting to work and back on the ice.”
During those eight seasons on the bench, Marshall guided the Valiants to seven conference tournament berths, including his most successful campaign during the 2018-19 season when Manhattanville won the UCHC Tournament Championship and earned an invitation to the NCAA Division III Tournament for the first time since 2007-08. Marshall helped lead the squad to the NCAA Quarterfinal Round, which tied for the second-best finish in program history.
Prior to his coaching career, Marshall’s Valiant tenure began as a four-year player for Manhattanville from 2006-10. He served as a two-year co-captain and also wore the “A” as a sophomore. Marshall graduated having played on three ECAC West Tournament Champion squads, including two trips to the NCAA Tournament.
