New coach Hues­man feels good about re­cruit­ing

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - SPORTS -

Russ Hues­man was named Richmond’s foot­ball coach on Dec. 14 and, de­spite join­ing the pro­gram’s re­cruit­ing ac­tion in progress, he be­lieves the Spi­ders are in good shape with the class that will sign Feb. 1.

Through this con­densed re­cruit­ing cy­cle for Hues­man, he didn’t as­sign ar­eas for as­sis­tants, which would typ­i­cally be the case for a coach and staff to­gether for some time. The Spi­ders this win­ter are more po­si­tion-spe­cific, mean­ing a coach who will even­tu­ally be as­signed to Tide­wa­ter may be re­cruit­ing play­ers from the At­lanta area who fit par­tic­u­lar UR needs.

“Right now, we’re re­cruit­ing peo­ple and not ar­eas,” said Hues­man.
