Seventh-year head coach Dave Magarity looks to inspire young squad.
Jason Marshall returns for his sixth season with the Army women's basketball program. The longest tenured member of the assistant coaching staff, Marshall made his way to West Point, N.Y., after having spent the previous four years as a basketball player at Ramapo College of New Jersey.
"I've known Jason for a number of years, and he has a solid understanding of what it takes to be successful," head coach Dave Magarity said upon Marshall's hiring. "He has been and will continue to be a positive addition to our staff."
While earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in business management, Marshall enjoyed a successful four-year career on the basketball court. A two-year captain for the Roadrunners, Marshall worked his way into a starting role as a senior under head coach Chuck McBreen. He played in 71 career games and earned the team's Most Improved Player award in 2006-07.
