Marshall W. "Marsh" Ryman (June 26, 1910 in Minneapolis, Minnesota- January 31, 1992 in St. Louis Park, Minnesota) was a former collegiate hockey coach and athletic director at the University of Minnesota. Ryman played baseball and hockey for Minnesota and was the hockey team captain for the 1931-32 season.[1] Ryman coached the Minnesota Golden Gophers men's hockey team in the 1955-56 season to a 16-12-1 record while John Mariucci coached the United States national men's ice hockey team at the 1956 Winter Olympics.[2] Subsequently, Ryman served as the national team coach himself, from 1958-59.[3] in 1960, Ryman was a referee at the 1960 Winter Olympics.[4] Later, Ryman became the Gophers' athletic director from 1963 to 1972, when the University forced Ryman to resign.[5] He won the 1972 George Eldridge Distinguished Service Award for his work in that position.[6] In 1978, he was elected to the National Association of College Athletic Directors Hall of Fame.[7] Ryman died of pneumonia in St. Louis Park, Minnesota in 1992.
