Donyell Marshall stepping down after five seasons at Central Connecticut

Central Connecticut announced on Friday that head men’s basketball coach Donyell Marshall was stepping down after five seasons at the helm. During that time, Marshall was just 40-104 overall and never finished above .500 in a season.

“It has been a privilege to serve as the head coach for this program for the past five seasons,” Marshall said in the release. “I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to coach these young men. I thank each of them, as well as my coaching staff, for making this a memorable experience. I thank everyone for their commitment to me and this program and for working hard every day to make us better.”

This was the first head coaching job for Marshall, a former All-American at UConn who played in the NBA for fifteen years before starting up his coaching career at George Washington in 2010.

“We thank Donyell for his dedication to Central Connecticut State University as well as the men’s basketball program for the past five years,” Interim AD Tom Pincince said. “Donyell is a man of high character and was a valued member of our staff. We wish Donyell all the best moving forward.”
