The search for a Women’s Basketball Head Coach has come to an end as Clarks Summit University’s Athletic Department has hired Marvin Evans from Baltimore, MD. Evans will also be the Director of the campus Recreational Center. Athletic Director, Mike Show, is excited to add Coach Evans to the CSU community. “His get-after-it attitude and approach to the game will empower student-athletes to excel both on and off the court.”
Marvin Evans is a coaching veteran with 14 years of experience that ranges from the high school level up to the Division I ranks. After graduating from Western Connecticut State University in 2004, where he is recognized as one of the top 25 players in the history of the conference, he began his coaching career at the high school level. Evans led two teams, over the course of six years, to a record number of wins before moving into the collegiate level.
Coach Evans most recently held the position of Lead Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach at Franklin and Marshall College, responsible for weekly academic assistance and mentoring, scouting of Centennial Conference opponents, leading player development workouts, and assisting with recruiting and Social media efforts. In 2020, Coach Marvin Evans spent time on the Division 1 level at Delaware State University where he handled post-player development while also helping with scouting, travel plans, and academic success.
With over 10 years at the helm of various programs, the most notable were his three years at the junior college level at Howard Community College in Maryland. There, he led the program to a complete turnaround in just three seasons, including accomplishing the first 20-win season in school history and the first playoff win for their women’s basketball program. During that historic 2019-20 season, he was named the Whoopdirt.com National Coach of the Week on February 18, 2020 and was later named a Finalist for Whoopdirt.com Junior College Coach of the Year. He also recruited and coached three All-Region XX players during his time at Howard Community College.
He is the owner of CMC Training, a program dedicated to assisting student-athletes in all facets of basketball development. He has worked at several high-profile camps, including the High School All-American Basketball Showcase, as the Maryland Showcase Director, the Howard University Elite Camp, and the Towson University Elite Camp.
With excitement to join CSU’s coaching staff and community, Evans says, “Basketball is my ministry which over the years has allowed me to support, empower and mentor young adults through the game that we all love!”
