Marc Bullen (born 12 July 1982) is a former Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League for the Essendon Football Club.

Originally from Shepparton, Victoria, Bullen was selected with the 63rd pick in the 2000 AFL Draft. In the 5 seasons he played for the Bombers, he never cemented his position. During the 2003 and '04 seasons the young defender/midfielder had patches of good form, playing 16 & 17 games respectively of the 22 standard season games, including an AFL Rising Star nomination in 2003.[1] However 2005 was a brown patch for him in his short career and he only managed 7 games for the season. Despite rumours of trade interest from Port Adelaide, at the end of the season he was subsequently delisted.[2]

After his delisting from Essendon, Bullen moved to Adelaide in 2006 and signed on for the Port Adelaide Magpies in the SANFL where his appearances were restricted due to injury.

In 2009, he switched from the Silvan Football Club in the Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League to Maribyrnong Park in the Essendon District Football League.

He now works at Hardwicks Meatworks which is an abattoir in Kyneton Victoria.

After playing for Maribyrnong Park, Bullen switched to Deer Park in the Western Region Football League, where he coached them to Premierships in 2013 and 2014.
