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.
