Marshall guided the Huskies through BIG EAST competition and into the transition to their new conference home, the American Athletic Conference in 2013-14.

In the 2001 fall season, Marshall's men's and women's tennis teams combined for a 27-14 record, for a .659 winning-percentage, the highest for the women's program since he took over in the 1997-98 season. The women's tennis team captured the New England Championships that season. Individually, UConn took championships in five of the six singles brackets and two of the three doubles brackets at the New England Championships.
Prior to that, Marshall led the men's tennis team to a 20-5 season in 1999-2000. Twenty wins set a single-season record for total wins while the Huskies capped off the season with a seventh place finish at the BIG EAST Championships. That year, UConn earned notable wins against Maryland, Georgetown, Seton Hall and Providence. Marshall has guided the men's tennis team to four championships, including in his first year as head coach. In the spring of 1993, he led the Huskies to the New England Championship with men's tennis capturing the ECAC Championship title that fall (1993). UConn defended each crown the following season, winning the New England Championship and the ECAC titles the following spring and fall of 1994.
