Western Educational Equity Assistance Center
This section of the Equity in Athletics web page will highlight coaches and the experience of developing equitable practices in high school athletic programs. Podcasts, webinars, and a Virtual College course are being developed and will be housed in this section.
Prior to joining the Western Educational Equity Assistance Center, Mike Marquez spent twenty-one seasons coaching high school athletics. His coaching career began only a year removed from high school and he was hired to lead a program at the age of twenty-two. The sports coached included football, basketball, baseball, and track. He spent thirteen seasons as a Varsity Head Football Coach at three different high schools. Although he is not currently coaching, he remains connected to the coaching community in Colorado and decided to bring a focus to equity issues in high school athletics.
