Marsch is a former American professional football player and currently a football manager with Leeds United.

Marsch played in the MLS with DC United (1996-1997), Chicago Fire (1998-2005) and Chivas USA (2006-2009), making more than 300 appearances across all three clubs. He also managed two caps for USA.

After retiring from playing in 2010, Marsch worked as an assistant under Bob Bradley with the USA national team, before joining expansion franchise Montreal Impact in 2011.

Marsch had an amicable split with Montreal at the end of the 2012 season, before taking up the head coach role at New York Red Bulls in 2015, leading them to the Supporters’ Shield in 2015, also winning the MLS Coach of the year.

Marsch moved on to become RB Leipzig assistant under Ralf Rangnick before eventually joining Red Bull Salzburg as manager in Austria in 2019, winning the double in his first season in charge.

He took over from Julian Nagelsmann at Leipzig ahead of the 2021-22 season, but struggled to keep them in the top-four race, parting ways six months later.

In February 2022, he was appointed as Leeds United manager to replace Marcelo Bielsa with the club battling relegation.
