Marr Declines Princeton Candidacy

Scott Marr, head coach of the University of Albany Great Danes, removed himself from Princeton University's coaching search, he said in an email today.

"I officially withdrew my name from consideration for the Princeton job today," Marr wrote. "I certainly appreciate Princeton showing interest, but the bottom line is that Albany has treated me very well, and my family enjoys life in this area. There really is no reason for me to make a change at this point in my life. I am looking forward to coaching my Great Danes this fall."

Marr has been at the helm at Albany since 2001, compiling an 80-58 record with the Danes through nine seasons. In 2006, his team was an overtime goal away from reaching their first NCAA Final Four.

Before landing at Albany, Marr was an assistant coach on Dick Edell's staff at Maryland. While there, the Terps finished national runner-up in 1995, 1997, and 1998. Marr was also an assistant on the 2006 U.S. National Team.

Marr played attack at Johns Hopkins where he won a national championship in 1987.

Princeton isnt Albany....HUGE shoes to fill. If you have something good somewhere, why leave? Albany is a solid program. The names Princeton, Syracuse, Hopkins....they can make you think twice about wanting to make that commitment.
