The Marsdens’ Legacy

Greg and Megan Marsden built Utah gymnastics into a national power before turning the program over to their handpicked successor, Tom Farden, following the 2019 season.

Greg launched the program in 1976 and was head coach for 40 years. A seven-time National Coach of the Year, he is winningest coach in college gymnastics history with 10 national championships and a 1,048-208-8 record. He led Utah to nationals an unprecedented 40-straight years. The Utes advanced to the Super Six 19 times in 23 years under him.

Megan (formerly McCunniff) was a three-time NCAA individual champion before becoming a member of the coaching staff in 1985. She was elevated to co-head coach in 2010, compiling a 222-80-3 record before retiring. Megan will remain involved with the program serving as the alumni and fundraising ambassador.

Farden was groomed by the Marsdens to step in and take over the program when they retired—their intent when they hired him away from Arkansas in 2011. In his four seasons as the co-head coach with Megan, Farden managed the training schedule and recruiting. His roots in the program allowed her step away knowing the program was in good hands.
