Marsden, while sad to lose Graba, is happy to have a rising talent join his team;
"Tom is someone who I have viewed as one of the best young up-and-coming coaches in the country. His philosophy for developing all aspects of the student-athlete is a perfect match for our program. We are thrilled to have him join our staff as we begin this new chapter for Utah gymnastics."
The line up will also change significantly. Utah finished up 6th in last year's national ranking. For a team accustomed to staying in the top 4 or 5 this must have rankled. Some fresh blood may be just what the doctor ordered.
They also have a swag of Freshies coming in, including Olympians Corrie Lothrop and Nansy Damianova, which will give the team a new feel. It will be interesting to see how these changes work for or against them. The team at Utah always has such a positive vibe, that I think they would only make it work for them.
