Marqu'es Webb

TITLE Assistant Coach


Marqu’es Webb is in her second season at Kansas after joining head coach Brandon Schneider’s staff in May 2023.

In Webb’s first season as an assistant, Kansas reached the NCAA Tournament for the 15th time in program history. The Jayhawks finished the 2023-24 season with a record of 20-13 and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Kansas had three wins over Top 25 opponents and two wins over Top 10 opponents, both accomplishments happening for the first time since 1999-2000. KU picked up its first win over a Top 5 opponent since 2009 with an 87-66 victory over then-No. Baylor on Jan. 10, 2024, which was also KU’s first win over the Bears since 2014.

The Jayhawks were led by four All-Big 12 honorees, including First Team selections Taiyanna Jackson and S’Mya Nichols, along with Holly Kersgieter and Zakiyah Franklin, who earned honorable mention. Jackson was also named to the Big 12 All-Defensive Team for the third time and earned WBCA All-America Honorable Mention for the second-straight season. Following the season, she became KU’s first WNBA Draft selection since 2015 when she was picked in the second round by the Connecticut Sun.

Webb came to Lawrence after spending the past two seasons as an assistant coach at Mercer. In her first season, Webb helped Mercer to a 23-7 record and the 2022 Southern Conference Championship. The Bears won the regular season and tournament crowns, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the seventh time in school history. Webb worked primarily with the Bears’ post players and coached nine players who earned All-SoCon honors, including two Defensive Players of the Year.

Prior to Mercer, Webb spent two seasons on staff at her alma mater Vanderbilt, working as an assistant coach during the 2020-21 season after serving as the director of player development the year prior. She returned to Vandy after playing two years professionally overseas in the Czech Republic for BK Zabiny Brno.

As a student-athlete Webb played in 119 games for Vanderbilt from 2013-17, making 80 starts. She scored 875 points and pulled down 703 rebounds in her career and was a member of an NCAA Tournament team as a freshman. Webb was elected to the SEC’s Women’s Basketball Leadership Council chair and was named the team’s Passion Player of the Year as a senior.

A native of Montgomery, Alabama, Webb earned a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Vanderbilt in 2017.
