Wichita State basketball coach Gregg Marshall is back in the Final Four of the Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge.

Voting for the final round began Monday and continues for two weeks. Michigan’s John Beilein, Purdue’s Matt Painter and Iowa State’s Fred Hoiberg are the other remaining coaches. Hoiberg jumped out to an early lead on Monday with Painter close behind and Marshall in third place.

Marshall finished in the top four last season and presented a check for $15,000 to the Wichita Children’s Home. He is representing that charity again in 2015. Fans can vote for their favorite coach or charity at www.espn.com/infiniti. The contest starts with 48 coaches and runs for 10 weeks.

Each coach earns at least $1,000 and the winning coach earns $100,000.
