John Garrison Marks (born March 22, 1948 in Hamiota, Manitoba and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba) is a retired former professional ice hockey player. He is currently the head coach of the Fargo Force of USHL.
He was head coach/director of player personnel for the Dayton Gems. Until they folded midway through the 2008-09 season, Marks was the head coach of the Augusta (GA) Lynx of the ECHL. In the 2006–2007 season he was the head coach of the Fayetteville FireAntz of the SPHL and under Marks, the team won the President's Cup taking 1st place in the playoffs. The first for the FireAntz, the championship was the first for the city of Fayetteville in 51 years.
From 1998-2006, he was the only Head Coach of the now defunct Greenville Grrrowl of the ECHL. He guided the South Carolina-based team to their only league championship in 2002 when the Grrrowl swept the Dayton Bombers in 4 games, and still the only ECHL team to sweep the Kelly Cup finals. He became the first coach in ECHL history to win two ECHL championships with two different teams.
He has two children, daughter Tricia and son Logan, who is an up-and-coming hockey goalie.
On May 10, 2010 Marks was announced as the new head coach of the Winkler Flyers of the Manitoba Major Junior Hockey League.
On December 1, 2011, it was announced that Marks would be inducted into the 2012 Class of the ECHL Hall of Fame.
