Greensburg Salem grad Brennan Marion selected for prestigious AFCA group

From a record-breaking career as a wide receiver to a swift splash in the coaching ranks, Brennan Marion’s emergence in college football has been an all-out fly pattern.

And he has no intentions of slowing down.

The new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at William & Mary is on the national radar as an emerging leader in the college game.

A Greensburg Salem graduate, Marion has been selected to attend the American Football Coaches Association 35-Under-35 Coaches Leadership Institute Jan. 6 at the group’s convention in San Antonio, Texas.

Marion, 31, and the other 34 selections were born on or after Jan. 1, 1984. He applied to the AFCA, as did hundreds of other coaches at the high school and college levels from across the country.

The program is aimed at spotting the top on-the-rise coaches. Participants take part in a number of leadership-based lectures that shed a light on ethics, accountability, career progression and family.

Marion, who left Tulsa as the NCAA’s career leader in yards-per-catch (28.7), recently left Howard, where he redesigned and sped up the Bison offense to make it one of the most exciting and productive in the nation.

The “Go-Go” package, which racked up yards and points for the Bison in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, will likely follow Marion and head coach Mike London, who also departed Howard, to William & Mary.

Marion also coached short stints at Arizona State and Oklahoma Baptist.
