Glenn D. Marshall

Director of Tennis

16th Season

UConn '89, '93


Glenn Marshall is entering his 11th season as the Director of Tennis at the University of Connecticut and 16th overall season with the tennis programs. He has been the men's tennis team head coach since 1992 and the head coach of the women's program since 1997.


Under his tutelage, the women's team has continued to rise within the conference. In 2006-07, he led the squad to .500 finish for the first time in four years and its highest finish at the BIG EAST Championship (seventh) in his reign. This came just a year after the 2005-06 squad qualified for the BIG EAST Tournament for the first time in five seasons before going on to finish 10th.


For his work within the conference, Marshall was elected president of the BIG EAST Tennis Coaches Association by his coaching peers. In this position, he represents the interests of all of the BIG EAST tennis programs with new Conference rules and all details pertaining to the conference championships in April.


Over the years there have been several notable accomplishments by Marshall's teams on the court.


During the 2001 fall season, Marshall led the women's team to a championship at the New England Championships. Individually, UConn took championships in five of the six singles brackets and two of the three doubles brackets. Marshall's men's and women's teams went a combined 27-14 that year, for a winning percentage of .659, the highest since he took over the women's program in the 1997-98 season.


In 1999-2000, Marshall led the men through an impressive 20-5 season, setting a UConn single-season record for total wins. The Huskies finished seventh in the conference and tabulated notable wins in the year against Maryland, Georgetown, Seton Hall and Providence.


The Huskies' mentor has led UConn to four men's team championships in his tenure at Connecticut. In his first year as head coach in the spring of 1993, Marshall led the Huskies to the New England Championship and the team captured the ECAC Championship in the fall of 1993. UConn then defended each crown successfully, winning the New England Championship in the 1994 spring season and the ECAC title in the fall of 1994.


In September of 1997, Marshall was named Director of Tennis. Since moving into that capacity, he serves as the head coach for both the men's and women's tennis programs. The women have posted 91 wins in the 10 seasons since his appointment.


Away from the game, Marshall has assisted in the research and development of tennis racquets for professional players at Bosworth International in Boca Raton, FL, after graduating from UConn in 1989.


A native of Glastonbury, Conn., Marshall serves as the Director of Tennis at the Madison Beach Club during the summer months. There, he and his staff instruct over 130 juniors and run an extensive adult program with USTA league play and lessons.


He attended Keene State College in New Hampshire for one year, before transferring to the University of Connecticut in the fall of 1986. Marshall was a three-year men's tennis letter winner at UConn from 1986-1989. He was a top singles and doubles player, and was voted team captain for the 1988-1989 season. He graduated from UConn in 1989 with a bachelor's of fine arts degree in music and later completed his master's degree in sport management.


Marshall resides in his hometown of Glastonbury, Conn., with his wife, Carolyn, and their two children, Carter (12) and Christine (10).
