Glenville, W.Va. -- Glenville State President Dr. Peter Barr and Athletic Director Janet Bailey announce the hiring of Charles Marshall as the new GSC head Lady Pioneers basketball coach.
He replaces Bunky Harkleroad who resigned to accept the women’s basketball coaching job at Sacramento State.
Marshall was an assistant to Harkleroad during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, which included the WVIAC Conference Tournament Championship for the Lady Pioneers in 2010-11.
“I am truly blessed to have this opportunity here at Glenville State College," Marshall said. "I am excited to be back amongst friends and can’t wait to get started."
Charles is originally from Kennesaw, Ga., and has an extensive background in coaching.
As a player, Marshall enjoyed a successful prep career at Pleasure Ridge Park High School in Louisville, one of the top high school programs in Kentucky. As a senior, he hit the game-winning shot to send his team to the state tournament. As a Berea College freshman, Marshall was a key contributor to a team that advanced to the NAIA semifinals for the only time in school history. After his senior season he was named KIAC 1st Team All-Conference and NAIA Honorable Mention All-American after averaging 18.3 points per game and leading the Mountaineers to another berth in the NAIA national tournament.
Coach Marshall served as an assistant coach at Berea College from 2004 to '05.
He was also recently inducted into the Berea College Athletic Hall of Fame.
