Embry-Riddle has a new golf coach. Russell Pick has been hired to take over the position from Kim and Mike Haddow, who both retired earlier this summer. Pick had been the golf director at Dakota Wesleyan University, an NAIA school in South Dakota, since 2021.

He takes over an Embry-Riddle program that has won numerous conference titles over the past decade.

He is very capable of taking our golf programs forward.”
