Dave Marshall has become synonymous with Bridgeport Girls Basketball. When you think of one, you cannot do so without the other coming to mind.
On Monday, Marshall announced his resignation from the Indian's head coaching position.
During 19 seasons roaming the sideline, Marshall developed a resume unrivaled by many others across the state. He steps down with a record of 349-105, 12 sectional championships, eight regional titles and, of course, the 2012-13 State Championship, led by West Virginia Player of the Year, Miki Glenn.
He admitted that the decision was a tough one to make, but one he had been mulling over throughout the last few seasons. With the graduation of his daughter, Amanda Marshall, he thought it was time for a change.
Marshall coached three players that earned first team All-State honors in Erica Rome, Kasie Carbacio and [Miki] Glenn. However, he believed the biggest accomplishment was sending 10 players off to college with at least half, or their entire education paid for thanks to basketball.
In the meantime, Bridgeport has not named a replacement.
