Beginning his second season as an assistant coach on Cindy Griffin's staff at Saint Joseph's is John Hampton.

With over 20 years of successful basketball experience, including seven years as a coach, Hampton came to Saint Joseph's in 2015-16 after spending the past year as an assistant at Rider under head coach Lynn Milligan. 

In his first season with the Hawks, Hampton helped guard Ciara Andrews garner All-Big 5 honors while reaching the 1,000-point mark for her career along the way. Additionally, guard/forward Chelsea Woods flourished under his guidance as she was named Big 5 Most Improved Player.

While with the Broncs in 2013-14, Hampton helped the team finish seventh in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, and saw four Rider student-athletes garnered MAAC All-Academic Team honors.

Prior to joining the Broncs, Hampton served as head coach at Clarkson University from 2010 to 2014 where he guided the Golden Knights to their most wins in a decade with 10 in 2013-14. On the court, six players garnered All-Liberty honors, highlighted by 2012-13 Rookie of the Year Ashley Loggins, while off the court, 10 players were named to the All-Liberty Academic Team. Along with assisting in fundraising campaigns and helping manage academic support programs, Hampton graduated from the NCAA’s selective ACE (Achieving Coaching Excellence) program for Black Coaches and Administrators in 2013. Before taking over as head coach, Hampton served as a graduate assistant with the Golden Knights from 2008 to 2010.

A 2008 graduate of Mansfield University, Hampton joined the men's basketball program as a walk-on and went on to earn the team's MVP twice (2007, 2008) and was selected a PSAC All-Conference honoree as a senior. He would earn a bachelor's degree in business administration in 2008 and earned his master's degree in organizational leadership from SUNY-Potsdam in 2010.

Hampton currently resides in philadelphia with his wife, Kismet, and daughter, Eden.
