Arthur began his coaching career at his alma mater, Springfield College, working as a student assistant until his graduation in 2000. He also was a graduate assistant for two seasons, where he earned his master’s degree in applied exercise science in 2002.

A native of Cheshire, Connecticut, Arthur and his wife Kendra have a son, Rhett.
