Rhodes served as an assistant coach at Rhode Island in 2013-14, where he supervised the strength program for men's basketball, men's track, baseball and softball.
 
"It became obvious after initial conversations that Matt was the right choice," said Senior Associate Athletic Director Richard Fletcher, who headed the search committee. "His enthusiasm for the field, plus his desire to see student-athletes succeed, made it apparent he would be successful in overseeing and continuing our goals of improving the strength and conditioning program."
 
He was an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Albany (N.Y.) in 2012-13. Rhodes directed activities for women's soccer and baseball.

"Being a Division I athlete, Matt knows the everyday rigors our student-athletes face, and he can guide them in improving their overall physical condition, which in turn helps them succeed individually and helps their team succeed as well," Fletcher added. 
 
Rhodes earned his bachelor's degree from Arizona in 1999.
