Having played as a youth in his hometown team, Bruno Marin joined Stade Rennais' Academy setup in 1979 just before his 16th birthday. Principally used as a striker, he spent three years being developed by the club before signing professional in 1982. It took him several months before he could make his first appearance for the First Team. His debut came on 22nd January 1983, coming on as substitute for Mario Relmy in a match against Béziers, playing his first minutes as a Rennes player. Alas, this would prove to be his only action that season, even if his side would still finish Division 2 champions at the end of the 1982/1983 season. His second season would be equally frustrating from a personal perspective, playing just one match at First Division level. In the 1984/1985 season, he would finally obtain slightly more gametime, making 11 appearances. He would leave Rennes at the end of the season with a disappointing record, signing for SCO Angers in the Second Division. He spent three seasons there, mainly as first choice, making 90 appearances for the club. In 1988, he moved on to FC Lorient, with whom he alternated between the Second and Third Divisions. He finished his career as a professional after a two-year stint with Annecy between 1990-1992, also in the Second Division. He continued to play afterwards in amateur football, notably with Quimper in Division 3 and then Concarneau in the sixth tier of French football (National 3). After hanging up his boots, he went on to manage teams in the Finistère region of Brittany in subsequent seasons.
