Coach Russell’s Summer Ruminations

College football hasn’t had the best run of PR over the course of this past spring and early summer –  and deservedly so. We’ve seen some truly horrific allegations come to light, and learned of some truly terrible decisions which were made within our profession. As a coach, I’m willing to give the benefit of …

Coach Russell’s Ruminations – December

Happy Holidays to all! I’ve just returned from a month on the road recruiting. So, for this for this month’s post, I’d like to share some general thoughts on recruiting, and high school visits. The month of December tends to be very busy for high school coaches and players as it pertains to football recruiting, …

Coach Russell’s Ruminations – November

The thought I’d like to share with you this month started in the form of a question I was asked… “Were you embarrassed?” That question was asked after I presented an award at our annual football banquet last February. Our tradition here dictates that the position coach presents the award if a member of his …

Coach Russell’s Ruminations – October

In this great game of ours, we talk a lot about the culture of our programs. We frequently use terms like “family” and “one heartbeat”. An interaction I had with a player recently led me to spend some time thinking about these terms, and how they tie in to other factors a successful team might …

Coach Russell’s Ruminations – September

I hope everyone is off to a good start for the 2015 season. A new year is always exciting. It’s a chance to see what your incoming players bring to the program, as well as to evaluate how everything you’ve done since the end of the previous year has paid off. My main thought for …

Coach Russell’s Ruminations – August

Welcome to August, football season, and my “Camp Edition” of Coach Russell’s Ruminations. My first thought for this month is something I think far too many men in our profession struggle with. There seems to be an eternal struggle between being a good coach and a good father. If you’re fortunate enough to have children, …

Coach Russell’s Ruminations – July

For college football coaches, and many high school coaches, the summer means one thing: camps. Summer football camps are not only a good way to supplement your income, but they’re also valuable for the opportunity to be exposed to high school players you may be interested in recruiting. I’ve just returned from my “biggest” camp …

Coach Russell’s Ruminations – June

Over the course of the last few months, we’ve been deep into the season of coaches moving to other schools, hirings, firings, etc. Usually, football coaches handle the process the right way. Unfortunately, sometimes they don’t. The entire process is something I’ve spent a lot of time observing and thinking about. This month, I’d like to …

Coach Russell’s Ruminations – May

May is here, Spring has sprung, and I hope everyone is able to take a few minutes to enjoy it. Here at Norwich, and at most schools playing our level of college football, the “Spring” (I put that in quotes because we had a grand total of two spring practices in 40+ degree weather) is …
