Prominent Players Coached
Marc Lubick begins his 10th season in coaching and his eighth at Colorado State. He's in his second year as a Steve Fairchild assistant, officially named to the new staff on Dec. 12, 2007.
Having developed strong recruiting connections in the state of Florida, where he grew up when his father, Sonny, was the defensive coordinator at the University of Miami prior to becoming Colorado State's head coach, the younger Lubick continues to target that area for the Rams. In addition, he also recruits the states of Montana and Wyoming.
Lubick, 31, spent three seasons as CSU's wide receivers coach from 2005-07. In 2007, Lubick's receivers helped quarterback Caleb Hanie lead the Mountain West Conference in passing efficiency. Under Lubick's guidance, Johnny Walker finished fifth in school history with 2,223 career receiving yards, having surpassed No. 5 Rebstock in `07. Damon Morton, meanwhile, led the Mountain West in 2007 with six touchdown catches -- five of which were for at least 34 yards (66, 54, 40, 34 and 57) -- en route to earning honorable mention all-conference honors.
In addition to Morton and Walker, Lubick has coached such players as all-star receivers Pete Rebstock and David Anderson, chosen by the Houston Texans in the seventh round of the 2006 NFL Draft, and 2007 NFL free agent signee Dustin Osborn.
A former prep quarterback and college safety, Lubick first returned to Fort Collins in 2000 to launch his coaching career as a defensive student assistant at CSU. Working with the Rams' secondary, he had the opportunity to assist in the development of stalwart performers Jason and Justin Gallimore, standout Aaron Sprague and honors-winner Dexter Wynn.
During the 2002 season, he was an academic graduate assistant coach at CSU, working with the team's wide receivers.
Lubick then worked in the NFL with Fairchild on Mike Martz's St. Louis Rams staff as a scouting assistant for two seasons (2003-04) before returning to CSU in the spring of 2005.
A defensive back at Montana State from 1996-99, Lubick earned academic all-conference honors three times. He played quarterback and defensive back at Fort Collins High School from 1993-95.
Born Nov. 13, 1977, in Bozeman, Mont., Lubick is single and makes his home in Fort Collins. His father, Sonny, is considered the most successful head football coach in CSU history, and in addition to Miami (Fla.), also served as an assistant at Stanford, Colorado State and Montana State. He also was the head coach at Montana State from 1978-81. Marc's brother, Matt, is the safeties coach and recruiting coordinator at Arizona State. Both Sonny and Matt played football at Western Montana.
In 2006, Marc began a successful but difficult year-long battle with a rare form of cancer, fighting through months of chemotherapy and inspiring his family, players and fellow coaches.
A 2001 graduate of Colorado State, he has a bachelor's degree in health and exercise science.
