Coach Russ is a nice individual, but only pays attention to high-performing athletes / discourages any other campus involvements besides cross country and track. You will get penalized if you participate in Greek life or other campus organizations. Generally, he is not the most motivational coach and does not care about your personal goals.

Very hands off, if you’re motivated he will help you achieve your goals. If you’re not, he will match your effort.

Despite dry humor and a somewhat reserved personality, Russ has transformed my outlook on college athletics. Sometimes being über motivational and outspoken isn’t always the best thing to look for in a coach; rather, a coach who genuinely cares about his athletes and their overall improvement.
