John Garrison Marks (born March 22, 1948 in Hamiota, Manitoba) is a retired professional ice hockey player. He most recently served as the head coach of the Fargo Force of the United States Hockey League (USHL).
From 1998 to 2006, he was the only head coach of the now-defunct Greenville Grrrowl of the ECHL. In 2002, he guided the South Carolina-based team to their only league championship in a four-game sweep of the Dayton Bombers; this was the first (and currently only) time an ECHL team has swept the Kelly Cup finals. With the victory, Marks also became the first coach in ECHL history to win two championships with two different teams.
For the 2006-07 season he was the head coach of the Fayetteville FireAntz of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL), leading the team to the President's Cup by taking first place in the playoffs. The championship was the first for the FireAntz as well as the first for the city of Fayetteville in 51 years.
On May 10, 2010, Marks was announced as the new head coach of the Winkler Flyers of the Manitoba Major Junior Hockey League.
Marks became the head coach of the USHL's Fargo Force on July 18, 2011.
On December 1, 2011, it was announced that Marks would be inducted into the 2012 Class of the ECHL Hall of Fame.
He has two children, daughter Tricia and son Logan.
