After one of the most challenging and rewarding seasons of his career, the timing of an attractive offer to go elsewhere could not have come at a better time for Wichita State. Marshall has rebuilt his roster and is optimistic after the Shockers won 14 of their final 18 games. He will lose just one senior after next season.
He told no one outside of Kresse and his immediate family of the offer, and instead of using it as an opportunity to get more money or years on his contract, he decided he was content and told Arkansas no.
“It would take something like that for us to leave, and I don’t know that we will ever leave,” Marshall, 56, told The Athletic . “But at the same time, we haven’t buried our head in the sand. We don’t say we’re absolutely never going anywhere.”
But as the years pass, it looks more and more like Marshall will stay where he’s happy and loved.
