Greg D. Marshall

Greg Marshall was an outstanding Canadian college running back, though his CFL career never got off the ground due to injuries.  With the University of Western Ontario, Marshall was a two time Canadian college allstar a running back in 1980 and 1981.  In 1980, Marshall won the Hec Creighton trophy as the outstanding college player in Canada. Mashall was a territorial draft exemption of the Edmonton Eskimos in 1982, but was injured in an exhibition game and missed the entire 1982 season.  1983 wasn't much better as Marshall played in the labour day classic against Calgary and again suffered a year ending injury.  Marshall was again put on the injury list in June of 1984, and finally called it quits for football in August of that year.

While Marshall's playing days were over, he was not done with football.  Marshall became an assistant coach with his old school at Western from 1984 to 1997.  In 1997, Marshall became head coach at McMaster, and is credited with turning their football program around. Under Marshall, McMaster won four consecutive Yates Cups as Ontario University champions from 2000 tho 2003.  Marshall was named the CIS coach of the year in 2000.  In 2004, Marshall returned to the CFL as the head coach of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, becoming the first person to jump straight from the Canadian college ranks to a CFL head coach.  Marshall was named the CFL coach of the year in 2004 as the Hamilton posted a 9-8-1 record in his rookie season, much improved from the 1-17 mark the team posted in 2003. Things fell apart, however, in 2005 with a 5-13 record, and Marshall was fired after Hamilton got off to an 0-4 start in 2006.  Marshall was not unemployed for very long as he returned to coach at Wesern Ontario in 2007 where he guided them to a Yates Cup, and in 2008 got the Mustangs back to the Vanier Cup before losing to Laval. In 2010, the Mustangs again won the Yates cup under Marshall's leadership.

(Note:  There is another Greg Marshall who played in the CFL as a defenisve lineman with Ottawa and then as an assistant coach with several teams including Hamilton, before becoming Saskatchewan head coach in 2011).
