Merlins Coaches & Staff

Glendale Merlins Rugby

The Glendale Merlins coaches and staff are the beating heart of Infinity Park.

Led by rugby director Mark Bullock, a renowned player and coach, the Glendale Merlins coaches and staff are dedicated to continually raising the level of play at Infinity Park while also working hard to introduce the next generation of fans and players to the game. Mark is one of more than two dozen coaches, each of whom brings an array of specialties and experiences to the pitch. Trainers and physicians ensure that players’ bodies are able to perform consistently at a high level.

Director of Rugby

More than a group of teams that share a playing surface, the Glendale teams make up a rugby family, with each invested in the success of the others. Don’t be surprised to find coaches and players from one team attending the game of another. They work together as ambassadors for rugby by coaching alongside one another at youth camps, and they are ambassadors to the community at-large as they attend events and volunteer throughout the Denver area.
