The Hawks would finish that season 30-2 and Martelli would be the consensus national Coach of the Year.
"My successes are directly related to the quality of people who have played for me. To each of them, I am forever grateful,” Martelli said in a school release. “Our players, staff and administrators are wonderful people who care for the program and the University. Saint Joseph’s has always been the perfect place for my family and me.”
Five former Hawks who have played under Martelli have gone on to play in the NBA: Jameer Nelson, Delonte West, Ahmad Nivins, Dwayne Jones and Langston Galloway.
