Russ Cunningham has been named head coach of the men’s and women’s teams at Oakland (Mich.) University. Cunningham has five-plus years of Division I coaching experience, having served as an assistant men’s coach at Michigan State (1996-99) and an assistant men’s and women’s coach at Campbell (1993-95).

“Russ has been a tremendous player himself, and his experiences at Michigan State and Campbell University made him a top candidate for this position,” said Tracy Huth, Oakland's athletic director. “He also has a background in fund raising and customer relations that is very important for this position. Russ will make a great addition to our staff.”

A graduate of Campbell University, Cunningham earned All-Big South Conference honors in 1992 and ’93 while leading the Camels to consecutive Big South championships. He earned a bachelor’s degree in sports management (1993) and a master’s degree in exercise science (1996).

A native of Ionia, Mich., Cunningham was named Michigan Amateur Golfer of the Decade by the Golf Association of Michigan in 2010. Cunningham continues to be one of the state's top golfers and has nine tournament victories statewide, with his most recent triumph coming at the 2010 Michigan Publinx Match Play Championship.
