Marshall Added To Army Hockey Coaching Staff


WEST POINT, N.Y. – Army hockey head coach Brian Riley announced the addition of Arlen Marshall to his staff as an Assistant Coach. 
Marshall comes to the banks of the Hudson after coaching at Manhattanville, his alma mater, since 2006. 
“We are very excited to add Arlen to our coaching staff,” said head coach Brian Riley. 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.” 
While with the Valiants, Marshall served as the head coach for eight seasons, helping bring the program to new heights. Starting as an assistant coach in 2006, Marshall was elevated to the head coaching position in 2012. 
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.
Under the two-time conference Coach of the Year selection, the Valiants totaled 35 all-conference selections, five Conference Players of the Year, five All-America selections, five Academic All-District honorees and two Academic All-Americans.
Prior to becoming head coach in 2012-13, Marshall also spent two years on the bench as an assistant coach for the Valiants. With his help, Manhattanville posted two straight winning seasons and two ECAC West Tournament berths.
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. The Valiants ended the season with a top-10 national ranking in each of his four seasons, including the No. 2 overall ranking after finishing 2006-07 as the national semifinalists.
Individually, Marshall completed his playing career as one of just three players at the time to have reached the 100-point plateau, thanks to 38 goals and 64 assists over 105 games. Additionally, at the time of his graduation, he was third in program history in points, fourth in assists and sixth in goals, as well as second in games played and sixth in power-play goals.
A native of Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, the forward graduated from Manhattanville in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in communications and political science. He also received his master’s degree in sports business management from the school in 2012.
