Jason Marshall, a two-time Big Ten champion and former member of the ATP tennis tour, has been an assistant with the TCU tennis programs since 2008 and with the women's team since 2011, now entering his fourth season. He has spent all of his time at TCU as an assistant under Dave Borelli.
Marshall has helped guide TCU's transition to the Big 12, with his work assisting in making the Frogs an NCAA Tennis Championships participant for the second consecutive season. His work with Stefanie Tan helped her earn ITA All-American and All-Big 12 singles team honors a year after being named the Mountain West Freshman of the Year.
A tireless worker on the recruiting trail and fitness specialist, Marshall was an integral part of TCU's ability to win three-set matches over the past three seasons. He helped Katariina Tuohimaa earn All-Mountain West honors in singles and doubles, while seeing Gaby Mastromarino pick up the honor in singles and Maria Babanova join Tuohimaa on the doubles team.
In 2010, in his second and final season with the Horned Frog men, Marshall helped guide the Frogs to their 19th NCAA apperanace in 20 years and fifth Mountain West Conference championship.
Marshall helped guide the Frogs to both the MWC regular season championship and an NCAA Regionals appearance in his inaugural season on campus despite playing against one of the nation's toughest schedules featuring 19 of 24 opponents listed among the nationally ranked. Four Frogs concluded the season among the ITA individual rankings, while the squad garnered a league-high five All-Mountain West Conference selections.
"Having the opportunity to work for TCU is like a dream come true for me," Marshall said at the time of his hiring. "It's a program that is close to my family and one that I grew up watching as a kid. Very few coaches in the game of tennis are as experienced and successful as Coach Borelli, and I'm proud to have been selected to help carry on this program's rich tradition."
Prior to joining the Frogs, Marshall spent one season as an assistant coach at Wright State, where he helped coach 2007-08 first-team All-Horizon League honorees Nick Camilleri Tony Teufel. He also formerly served as a coach for the Tahitian Olympic team in 2007, helping lead the squad to a Bronze-medal finish at the South Pacific Games. In addition to his coaching duties, he also managed the team's budget, organized team travel and implemented strength and training programs.
Also a seven-year member of the ATP Tour from 2001 through 2007, Marshall reached a career-high world ranking of 101st in doubles. His top moment as a professional came in Sept. 2005, when he upset top-10 ranked Marcos Baghbatis in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2, during an ATP event in Vietnam. He traveled to more than 35 U.S. states and 40 countries for events as a member of both the ATP and International Tennis Federation.
Marshall, a native of Dallas, graduated from Purdue, where he was a four-year letterman and still holds career records for winning percentage at the No. 1 singles and doubles positions. He won Big Ten singles titles in both 1999 and 2001 and was a three-time All-Big Ten selection overall. As a Boilermaker he reached a high national ranking of No. 17 in singles and No. 19 in doubles during his senior campaign.
Marshall received his bachelor's degree in business from Purdue in 2001 after graduating from J.J. Pearce High School in Dallas. In 2012, Marshall completed his Masters of Business Adminstration from Texas A&M-Commerce. He is a member of the United States Racket Stringers Association and volunteers time with funds and Pro-Am events.
