Jeff Battle – Assistant Coach Wake Forest. Played at Marshall and started his coaching career there.

John Brannen – Assistant Coach Alabama. Another former Marshall basketball player.

Larry Harrison – Assistant Coach West Virginia. Former Head Coach at Hartford.

Also, two current head coaches whose names have been mentioned are Brad Greenburg (Radford) and Buzz Peterson (Appalachian State) .
