Marvin Eugene Menzies (born October 15, 1961) is an American college basketball coach who most recently served as the head men's basketball coach at UNLV. He was named to the position on April 17, 2016 as the successor to Chris Beard, who the previous week had accepted the head coaching position of the Texas Tech Red Raiders men's basketball team. Fired from UNLV in March of 2019, he is replaced by South Dakota State head coach T. J. Otzelberger as Menzies is planned to take the associate head coach position at Grand Canyon University the immediate following season.

Menzies previously coached at New Mexico State University where he replaced previous coach Reggie Theus. Like Theus, Menzies came to NMSU after spending the previous two years as an assistant coach under Rick Pitino at the University of Louisville. In fact, Menzies had been hired by Louisville to replace Theus when he left that institution to take the head coaching job at NMSU in 2005. The NMSU job was Menzies' first head coaching position at a four-year institution. Menzies was the 24th person to hold the head coaching position in the history of Aggie basketball. Prior to his stint at Louisville, Menzies had previously served as an assistant coach at USC, San Diego State and Sacramento State and had served as head coach at Santa Monica College. He came to NMSU with 14 years of collegiate coaching experience.

Menzies holds a bachelor's degree in economics from UCLA and a master's in education from California State University, Sacramento. He is a member of Phi Beta Sigma fraternity.
