Associate Head Coach
Kyle Russell

Kyle Russell begins his ninth season as a member of the CCU coaching staff. He was promoted to his current position of Associate Head Coach on Shaun Docking’s staff prior to the 2015 season. He spent the 2010-14 seasons as an assistant coach.

During Russell's time at Coastal Carolina, the Chants have posted an overall record of 122-43-13, while also securing six Big South titles -- five regular season (2011, 2012, 2013, 2016, 2017) and five tournament (2010, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017) -- two Sun Belt Regular and 2 Tournament title and eight straight trips to the NCAA Tournament. The 122 victories since 2010 are the fourth most in the nation.

In 2016 the Chanticleers became one of the top defensive teams in the nation, only allowing 18 goals all season, a 0.86 goals against average. CCU’s goal keeper Braulio Linares-Ortiz was named Second Team All-Sun Belt following the season. It was a season which saw the junior lead the SBC in goals against (14); GA Average (0.74) and shutouts (8).

Russell's arrival in Conway paid immediate dividends as the Chanticleers won the 2010 Big South Tournament and reached the NCAA Tournament for the eighth time in school history. Coastal finished the year with an overall record of 12-8-2 and won the most games in a season since the 2004 team finished with 14 wins. The Chants turned in eight shutouts during the course of the year and allowed just one team from the Big South to score more than one goal in any single game.

A four-year defender for the Chants from 2005-08, Russell drew 74 starts in the 78 games in which he appeared and currently ranks ninth all-time at Coastal in games played and eighth in games started.

Russell proved to be a mainstay on the back line and anchored one of the top defensive units in the Big South in each of his four seasons on the pitch. In fact, Russell and the Coastal defense recorded a total of 21 shutouts over a four-year span and never ranked worse than third in the Big South in that category.

That same defense finished fourth or better in goals against average in three of his four seasons and limited opponents to just a total of 27 goals during the 2006 season.

A native of South Elgin, Ill., Russell played an instrumental role in helping Coastal win one Big South regular season championship, one Big South Tournament championships and make one NCAA Tournament appearance.

The Chanticleers posted a 42-26-1 overall record and a 20-6-1 conference record with Russell on the back line.

Individually, Russell was named All-Big South on three different occasions and was tabbed to the Big South All-Tournament team three times. He went on to participate in the Major League Soccer Combine during the summer of 2009 and the United Soccer League combine in 2010. Upon graduation, Russell played professionally with the Charleston Battery, Real Maryland and Charlotte Eagles of the USL.

Russell graduated from Coastal Carolina in 2009 with a degree in business management and received his master's of business administration in 2014. He and his wife Monica married in May 2013.
