In Australia Arok coached St George Saints, as well as South Melbourne FC, Port Melbourne, Gippsland Falcons, and Sydney Olympic but is perhaps best known for his role as coach of the Australian national team. Arok coached Australia in 48 A internationals between 1983 and 1989. In the 1990 Australia Day honours, Arok was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for "service to soccer, particularly as the Australian national coach".
He oversaw the Australian team in its 1–0 loss to Fiji on 30 November 1988, a match which is still remembered fondly by Fiji soccer supporters today.
He died on 12 January 2021, aged 88.
