Josh Markum Appointed as Head Girls Basketball Coach at St. Margaret's

St. Margaret's Episcopal School announces today Josh Markum's appointment as head coach of the Tartans girls basketball program.
 
Markum was previously the head coach, head of basketball development and assistant athletic director at Fairmont SJC. Prior to his stint at Fairmont, Markum was the head boys basketball coach and associate athletic director at Saddleback Valley Christian (which was purchased by Fairmont Schools in 2020) from 2015-2020. Markum was named the 2017-2018 San Joaquin League Coach of The Year, oversaw a 21-win turnaround in two years and coached and developed 40 all-league players during his tenure.
 
Markum also is the Assistant High School Director and Head High School Coach for Team Nikos, an AAU affiliated program and a dynamic and rapidly growing youth basketball organization based in South Orange County. Team Nikos comprises 23 teams and more than 200 youth athletes in Ladera Ranch.
 
Markum competed at Trinity International University in Chicago, and played his high school ball at Saddleback Valley Christian, where he graduated with 16 school records.
 
"Josh Markum is a great coach, but more importantly, an incredible person," said St. Margaret's Director of Athletics Chris Nordstrom. "He will be a tremendous addition to our staff, and I am confident in his ability to lead our girls basketball program to an exciting future." 
"I am very excited to be part of St. Margaret's and joining the successful athletic tradition here," said Coach Markum. " I am looking forward to building on that tradition and the future successes to come."
 
Coach Markum will join the Middle School Personal Fitness and Wellness department as a full-time teacher in the fall.
 
"I want to thank Jonathan Tufo, Lori Fava and Jess Johnson for stepping in and running the team this past season," said Nordstrom. "We are thrilled that coaches Tufo, Fava and Johnson will remain part of the Tartan girls basketball program coaching staff moving forward."
