Mark Marquess Moves Into Ninth Place On NCAA Division I All-Time Wins List

March 27, 2009

STANFORD, Calif. - With Stanford's 13-3 victory Friday night over Washington, head coach Mark Marquess posted his 1,332nd career win - the ninth-most ever by an NCAA Division I head baseball coach.

Marquess, who took over the reins of his alma mater prior to the 1977 season, has compiled a 1,332-679-7 (.662) record during his 33 campaigns as Stanford's head coach. With tonight's win, Marquess snapped a tie for ninth with Larry Cochell, who logged a 1,331-813-3 (.621) ledger over 39 years with Emporia State (1967-69), Creighton (1970-71), Cal State Los Angeles (1972-76), Oral Roberts (1977-86), Northwestern (1987), Cal State Fullerton (1988-90) and Oklahoma (1991-2005). Next on the list is Rod Dedeaux, who ranks eighth in NCAA Division I history with 1,342 victories over 44 seasons at USC (1942-47 and 1949-86).

A member of the American Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame, Marquess has guided his Stanford clubs to 25 NCAA Tournament appearances, a pair of College World Series championships, six NCAA Super Regional titles, 15 NCAA Regional crowns and 12 Pac-10 regular season championships. 31 of Marquess' first 32 Stanford teams have finished at .500 or better, while 19 of his clubs have won at least 40 games and six have crested the 50-win plateau.

Marquess, who is a three-time NCAA Coach of the Year recipient and nine-time Pac-10 Coach of the Year honoree, has gone 120-55 (.686) over his 25 postseason appearances. The former Stanford baseball and football star has led the Cardinal to 14 College World Series trips since 1982, including a Pac-10 best six since 1999.
