Geoff then pursued a career in coaching. During his coaching career, he has worked closely with Steve Fisher of SDSU, Riverside Community College and for over 20 years as a high school coach in the Inland Empire.
Gorham then had the opportunity to enter the media world by chance.

Because of his local popularity, Geoff, became the color analyst for the ‘Riverside TV Football Game of the Week’, which he continues today. That success led to being a part of the UC Riverside Men’s Basketball broadcasts as the Color Commentator for the Highlanders. He and Pep Fernandez once again joined forces, as Pep joined Geoff on the broadcasts this season for UC Riverside Men’s Basketball.
Geoff has made many friends in the Inland Empire over the years. His Father, John, was a high School basketball coach in the community for over 50 years and his family has deep roots in the community. Geoff is often called, “The Mayor” in social circles, because of his popularity and love for local sports. He is a family man, with three sons and wife, Karla, who is a local college Professor.
