Steven Marcus

Head Coach of the St John edge Professional team

Steve attended St. Bonaventure University in Allegany, N.Y., where he was a roommate of Toronto’s Andrew Nicholson, who would go on to enjoy an NBA career (Nicholson is currently playing in China). Marcus was the St. Bonaventure team’s student manager, and was part of the 2012 squad which won the Atlantic 10 championship and went to the NCAA Tournament.

After university, Marcus spent two years with Maine of the NBA G-League (it was the D-League then), working as the assistant director of basketball operations under coach Scott Morrison of P.E.I. (Morrison is currently an assistant coach with the Boston Celtics.)

Following his stint with Maine, Marcus worked a spell with Adidas sportswear, primarily with NBA and WNBA players on commercial and promo shoots.

In 2016-17, Marcus was back in basketball again, working as a graduate assistant coach at NC State under head coach Mark Gottfried.

It was in Raleigh that he met Jeff Dunlap, NC State’s director of basketball operations. So when Dunlap was hired as the Edge’s first coach in 2017-18, he brought Marcus along with him to Newfoundland.
