Before making his return to Whittier and the west coast, Rife spent four seasons as the head coach at Wagner College in Staten Island.

Rife first broke into the Division I coaching scene in 2002 when he was tabbed an assistant coach at UMass, his alma mater. In two seasons with the Minutemen, he helped the team to an appearance in the NCAA Division I quarterfinals in 2003. He is no stranger to the NCAA Tournament as in 2002 he assisted in piloting Washington & Lee to the Division III Final Four, a run that also featured the capturing of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference crown.
Rife graduated from UMass in 1996, earning his undergraduate degree in sports management.
