posted on Dec. 4: Greg Marshall wins national coach of the year title


[img_inline align=”right” src=”” caption=”Greg Marshall”]McMaster's Greg Marshall has been named the 2000 CIAU Football Coach of the Year. For Marshall, his fourth year at the helm of the Marauders was his best yet.

Leading the Marauders to a first-place finish in the highly competitive Ontario University Athletics(OUA), his team set a new Canadian Interuniverstiy Athletics Union (CIAU) and OUA record for points scored in a season with 325. Success continued through the playoffs as well, as the Marauders won their first ever Yates Cup (OUA) Championship.

The Marauders were ranked among the CIAU Top 10 the entire season, peaking at fourth in the nation while finishing with a 7-1 record. Since taking the helm of the Marauders in 1997, Marshall's teams have improved every season.

A former CIAU All-Canadian and Hec Crighton Winner as a member of the
Western Mustangs, Marshall has been instrumental in establishing an
improved work ethic and winning attitude at McMaster. Marshall becomes
only the second person in CIAU history to have won both the Hec Crighton and CIAU Coach of the Year awards.

More proof of the impact of Coach Marshall came at the CIAU All-Canadian banquet where three Marauders were named First Team All-Canadians, two to the second team, and McMaster's Kojo Aidoo was named the CIAU Most Outstanding Player.
