According to a report from GoLocal, Bryant College head men’s basketball coach Jared Grasso was arrested by Smithfield, RI police on October 1st, and charged with “Failure to Stop for Accident Resulting in Damage to Vehicle.” Grasso is due for arraignment on Oct. 24 in Third Division District Court.
The arrest occurred two days after Grasso was placed on leave by the university. This incident appears to be unrelated to the current leave.
Grasso is in his 6th season at Bryant 79-67 (.541). He is under contract through 2026-27.
Phil Martelli, Jr. is currently serving as the acting head coach at Bryant in Grasso’s absence.
