Mike Glavin, a 1978 graduate of SJU, enters his 23rd year as the Hawks head men's cross country and track coach. After leading the Hawks to their fourth Atlantic 10 Championship title in cross country in 2009, he was named the Atlantic 10 Men's Cross Country Coach of the Year for the fourth time in his career (1992, 1998, 2000, 2009). Under his watchful eye, the Hawks have produced a total of 46 All-Conference harriers and five NCAA qualifiers. During his tenure, Saint Joseph's has also seen five athletes earn Runner of the Year honors and three earn Rookie of the Year awards and 11 student athletes become Academic All-Conference performers.

Throughout Glavin's track career, the Hawks have twice received the Runner-Up Award in the Atlantic 10 (2001, 2002), as he has coached 25 NCAA Regional Qualifiers and six IC4A Champions. To add to his resume, he has coached a total of 138 All-Conference members and 34 Academic All-Conference honorees. During his career, five student-athletes have been named A-10 Performer of the Year, two earned Rookie of the Year recognition and one was the A-10 Student-Athlete of the Year.

Glavin returned to his alma mater after a highly successful 10-year stint as track and cross country coach at Paul VI High School in Haddonfield, N.J. During his tenure there, he led the cross country team to a phenomenal 110-0 record, including three state championships in 1984, 1985 and 1988. His track record was an equally impressive 60-18, which included four South Jersey championships and the 1989 State crown. Glavin was inducted into the Paul VI Alumni Hall of Fame in October, 2009.

A stellar performer for the Hawks as an undergrad, Glavin established numerous records, including the outdoor track record for the three-mile, the 5,000-meter runs, and the indoor record for the mile and two-mile. He also held the Belmont Plateau cross country record with a time of 25:36. Glavin qualified for the NCAA Cross Country Championships in both his junior and senior years.

Glavin holds a master's degree in mathematics from Villanova University and is currently teaching at Haddonfield High School in New Jersey. The 55-year-old resides in Ardmore, Pa. with his wife Julie, and sons, Graeme and Michael.


In just his third year as head coach, Bob Hamer was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Coach of the Year for the second time, for the 2011 Outdoor season after being so honored for the 2009-10 Indoor season. In the spring of 2011 the Broncs won their first MAAC Title under Hamer to go along with their five runner-up finishes at MAAC Championships.

In his first season as the cross country head coach, Hamer led the Rider women to a second place finish at the MAAC Championships, their highest finish ever.

In his three years and nine seasons as the Bronc head coach Hamer's athletes have set 57 Rider records, won 45 MAAC gold medals, have won two IC4A individual championships (cross country/3,000m indoor), earned four Outstanding Performer Awards at MAAC Championships and had a Rider Athlete of the Year.

Hamer came to Rider as the assistant coach for cross country and track & field teams in 2003. As an assistant coach, Hamer's primary duties were with the cross country and distance runners, as he is a USA Track & Field Level II certified coach for endurance events. In 2007 his men's cross country team placed a best-ever (at that time) third in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and 14th at the NCAA Regional while the women's cross country team placed a best-ever 22nd at the NCAA Regional.

Hamer came to Rider from Saint Joseph's University, where he was an assistant coach. Before coaching at Saint Joseph's, Hamer was the head track & field coach at the Devon Preparatory School.

A 1995 graduate of Penn State, Hamer won the Big Ten Conference Championship in the 5000 meters. He twice helped the Nittany Lions finish among the top 15 teams in the nation in cross country.
