Martelli leaves Niagara for Delaware

---Phil Martelli, Jr., is ending a five-year with Joe Mihalich and Niagara, and is joining the staff at Delaware.

While at Niagara, Martelli was a part of the 2007 NCAA Tournament team and the 2009 NIT squad which won 26 games, the second most in school history. Martelli also mentored point guard Anthony Nelson, who leaves as the school's career leader in assists.

“It was a really tough decision,” Martelli said. “It was a lot of hours thinking, a lot of lists being put together, reasons to stay, reasons to come to Delaware. It was real hard because I’m leaving a great place, but more importantly, a great person in coach (Joe) Mihalich.”
