Evan Marcus joined the Virginia football staff in 2011 as the program's Director of Football Training and Player Development. Marcus returned to the UVa program after spending the previous four years working in the National Football League. He served as UVa's head strength coach for four football seasons from 2003-06.

For three years Marcus was the Miami Dolphins' head strength and conditioning coach. Prior to that he served in the same capacity with the Atlanta Falcons during the 2007 season. In those roles he managed the physical development of the team's players, including strength and conditioning, flexibility, nutrition, agility and speed improvement.

Marcus' four years at the NFL level allows him to bring some innovations and new approaches to the Cavalier program. Marcus started in the NFL as the assistant strength coach with the New Orleans Saints from 2000-02. He held assistant strength and conditioning posts on the collegiate level at Arizona State (1991-92), Rutgers (1993), Maryland (1994), Texas (1995-97) and Louisville (1998-99).

Marcus oversaw a complete renovation of the strength and training room in the McCue Center during the spring of 2012 that doubled the amount of workstations for student-atheles and incorporated additional resources to facilitate more efficient workout routines. The area also received a complete makeover with new graphics and color schemes.

Marcus is a 1990 graduate of Ithaca College, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science. He lettered three times as an offensive tackle on the school's football team and was a starter on the 1988 NCAA Division III National Championship team. The native of Union, N.J., went on to earn his master's degree in higher education from Arizona State in 1992. Marcus and his wife, Lori, have a son, Jake, and a daughter, Anna.
