Central hires Shawn Marsh as head football coach
Central High School has hired Shawn Marsh as its new head football coach, Warriors athletic director Randy Powell announced on Friday.
Marsh has been a longtime football coach in the Grand Valley. Most recently, Marsh was an assistant coach at Colorado Mesa University.
He also had high school head-coaching stints at Fruita Monument and Grand Junction. In 2005, he led the Tigers to the Class 5A state championship game.
Marsh graduated from Central High in 1987 and Mesa State College in 1992.
Marsh replaces Vern McGee, who resigned from the position at the end of the season.
“He has a proven track record,” Powell said. “He had a great run at Junction and Fruita. Everywhere he’s gone he’s been a winner.”
