Of course RMU is proud of all of our students who have gone on to coach or build successful careers in sports over the years, which includes hundreds of our graduates. However, if we have omitted you in error, we apologize. Please contact Val Brkich at brkich@rmu.edu and we'll be sure to add your name and title.)
