2009 Review Winning Ways Continue at OU... It’s never easy taking over for a legendary coach as Eric Pogue did for 2010 Hall of Honor inductee Gary Parsons. But Pogue sure did make it look simple. In his first season at the helm he guided the Golden Grizzlies to their eighth regular-season Summit League championship with an unblemished 5-0-1 record. OU came very close to making its third straight NCAA tournament appearance, but fell just short in the conference semifinals. For his efforts, Pogue was recognized by being named Coach of the Year by his peers. “It is a great honor to be recognized for your hard work, dedication and success, both on and off the field,” said Pogue. “I have said this before, but individual honors are great to receive, but they cannot be achieved without team success and the work of a lot of people, not just me.” Pogue’s team also excelled off the field in 2009-10 with an overall team grade point average of a 3.2, one of the highest team GPAs in the National Soccer Coaches Athletic Association (NSCAA). The Golden Grizzlies had a strong effort within the community as well, partaking this winter where Pogue created the Meals on Wheels program, where the men’s soccer team delivered meals each weekend to home-bound senior citizens and spent time with them socializing and putting smiles on their faces.

“My job as a soccer coach has always been about developing good young men,” said Pogue. “Sure we want to win games and be successful along the way, but at the core of it all is instilling in each of these boys a strong work ethic, importance of education, and giving back to those less fortunate than us. These guys really bought into these core values.” Pogue admits that none of these accomplishments are not possible without a tremendous amount of support around him. “I would like to first thank my unbelievable coaching staff of JP (Jason Perry), Sarge (Steve Seargant), John Phillips and John Ciecko,” said Pogue. “Without them, none of the team and individual success would be possible. Secondly, I would like to thank my mentor and close friend, Gary Parsons, for all that he taught me in my seven years with him. He really prepared me well to carry on the tradition of Oakland University soccer that he worked so hard to build over 28 years. “Lastly and certainly not least, I would like to thank my friends and family that helped me so much in this first year of being head coach and in particular I would like to thank my then girlfriend, Jen (Marcure). She was always there for me through the good times and the tough times, and I am truly thankful that she was by my side through it all. My sister, Heather (Hall), brother-in-law, James

www.ougrizzlies.com

(Hall), my three little nieces Ava, Kiera, and Brooke, and of course my Mom (Gale), were all my biggest fans. I am truly grateful for all their love and support along the way. Without them, I’m quite certain that these accomplishments would not have been possible.” When asked about all that Oakland soccer was able to achieve this year, Coach Pogue acknowledges that nothing comes without hard work and dedication. “I am not going to lie and say it was the easiest of years because that would not be the truth. We went through a lot of ups and downs as a team and me as an individual, but we both came out stronger on the other end and learned from our mistakes, so that is what is important. My late father (Steve) used to always tell me that ‘you learn more from failure than success’, so I have always tried to carry that with me in my coaching and in my life, but it can be a tough lesson to learn.” The future looks very bright for the OU soccer program being led by one of the top young coaches in the nation. The youthful Golden Grizzlies are in good hands and are looking forward to the 2010 fall season. “I told our boys right before they left for the summer, ‘with success comes expectations. Expectations provide great motivation’. We have a whole summer to make sure expectations become reality this fall!”

Administration Dr. Gary D. Russi President, Oakland University Southwestern Oklahoma, ‘69 Gary Russi has served as Oakland University’s president since 1996, and he held the position of interim president from 1995 to 1996. Under his leadership Oakland completed its first strategic plan, 1995 - 2005. The 10-year plan paved the way for Oakland’s unprecedented growth - in stature and size - and is helping the university realize its 2020 vision. In April 2005 Russi announced the university’s first-ever comprehensive campaign, “Innovation and Opportunity - The Campaign for Oakland University,” with a goal of raising $110 million by 2010. The campaign is designed to propel the university to the next level in providing a comprehensive liberal education, raising funds for professorships, scholarships, research endowments, academic programs and improved facilities. The university has raised more than $100 million toward its goal through September 2008. Oakland University is a top-rated academic institution that is widely recognized as a university on the rise. With a steadily growing student population which topped 18,000 in fall 2007, Russi has worked with the Oakland community to maintain the highest caliber of academic quality and to build an infrastructure that retains the best features of a small campus setting while offering a large array of programs and services. With Russi’s support, OU has forged numerous partnerships and alliances in Michigan – and throughout the world. Together with business and industry, local health care organizations, corporations, and educational institutions, these collaborations are creating opportunities for achievement and growth. Under Russi’s leadership, Oakland has introduced more than 56 new academic degree programs since 1995 and full-time faculty has grown to more than 500. These new programs and faculty members have drawn a greater number - and an even more talented group - of students to the university. Average high school GPAs and ACT scores of incoming freshmen continue to rise. Russi’s commitment to experiential learning with flexible class schedules, high quality facilities and classroom technologies, and a wide array of student services and research opportunities is helping Oakland grow into a distinctive university focused on delivering a unique and progressive undergraduate and graduate education. In addition, during Russi’s tenure, Oakland has invested - often with state support - more than $190 million to enrich environments for teaching, researching, learning, and living. Capital improvements include a $43-million Science and Engineering Building, a $37-million Recreation and Athletics Center, the $17.5-million R. Hugh and Nancy Elliott Hall of Business and Information Technology, the $32-million Carlotta and Dennis Pawley Hall, $21-million new student apartments and numerous building and facilities upgrades. This trend will continue with the Campaign for Oakland University’s goal of further capital enhancements to support the university’s growth. In 1998, Oakland University moved to NCAA Division I competition and adopted a new mascot identity, the Golden Grizzlies. Recognized as a conference leader in student-athlete graduation rates, Oakland has earned 16 regular season Summit League championships (formerly Mid-Continent Conference) and 37 league championships in its first nine years of Division I competition.

and support for faculty research endeavors. While there he was instrumental in focusing university staff resources and budgets to strengthen faculty research. Russi was also very involved there, as he is at Oakland, in supporting and promoting undergraduate student research projects. As vice president for research and strategic planning, Russi also led and managed the application of state-ofthe-art information technology in the university’s administrative, educational and research activities. Russi’s administrative career at Drake University began in 1973 as a project coordinator in development and fund raising where he authored, co-authored and/or managed 42 funded grant or contract projects ranging from $200 to $900,000. From there he progressed through a variety of administrative positions, including department chair for the Clinical Externship Program, director of university planning, vice provost for planning and budgeting, and executive assistant to the president. Russi participated in the American Council on Education (ACE) Fellows Program in Academic Administration from 1982-1983 where he served as special assistant to the executive vice president and provost of the University of Nebraska. Teaching and Research Russi’s teaching and research experience began at Southwestern Oklahoma State University where he was an undergraduate research assistant in chemistry from 1967-1969. His professional teaching and research career began in 1969 when he joined Kansas University as a teaching/research assistant in pharmacology and toxicology. During his tenure at Drake University he held the positions of assistant professor, associate professor and professor of pharmacology and toxicology. From 1973 to 1984, Russi published 18 abstracts and articles in professional journals. Between 1970 and 2006, he co-authored eight scientific articles, dissertations and abstracts. And from 1973 to 1991, he completed 13 invited scientific book reviews. Awards and Community Service Russi has achieved numerous honors and awards for his many achievements, including the Executive of the Year Award, Mayor’s Business Council, City of Rochester Hills (2008), Quality People, Quality County Award, Oakland County (2008), Lifetime Achievement Award from Sunrise Pinnacle Awards (2008), Honorary Alumni Award (2007) from Oakland University, Who’s Who in Education, Crain’s Detroit (2005), State of Michigan Commission on Higher Education and Economic Growth (2004), George Wibby Athletic Award from Oakland University (2002), Mentor for the American Council on Education Academic Administrator Fellow (2000), Distinguished Alumni Award from Southwestern Oklahoma State University (1998), Honorary Member of Golden Key National Honour Society at Oakland University (1993 to present), Merck Research Award at Southwestern Oklahoma State University (1969) and Rho Chi Society Undergraduate Research Award at Southwestern Oklahoma State University (1969). Russi currently serves as co-chair of the Oakland County Business Roundtable and vice chair of Oakland County Automation Alley. He is a member of the Citizens Research Council of Michigan and the Detroit Renaissance Board of Directors, and serves on the Board of the Oakland County Health Initiative. Educational Background Russi earned his bachelor of science degree in pharmacology from Southwestern Oklahoma State University and his doctor of philosophy degree in pharmacology and toxicology from the University of Kansas.

Administrative Experience Russi joined Oakland University in 1993 as vice president for academic affairs where he was responsible for all academic programs, academic support services, research and several university wide administrative services. In 1995 he assumed the role of interim president. He held both positions until he was named president in 1996. Russi is also a professor of Health Sciences. Prior to joining Oakland, Russi was vice president for research and strategic planning at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa where he served as the university’s chief research administrator and promoted institutional direction

Administration Tracy HUTH Director of Athletics Third Year Oakland, ‘85

When one thinks of Oakland University athletics, one of the first names that comes to mind is that of secondyear Director of Athletics Tracy Huth. After all, Huth has been involved with Oakland University athletics as a student-athlete, coach, and administrator since the 1980-81 academic year. Huth was appointed Director of Athletics in October 2007 after serving as the interim director for one year, and immediately put in motion an ambitious plan to enhance the overall Oakland University athletics experience, both for student-athletes and fans alike. The result thus far has been a more fanfriendly atmosphere at all OU events, and increasing studentathlete success both athletically and academically. During his first year as OU’s Director of Athletics, Oakland placed more student-athletes on The Summit League Academic All-League teams than any other institution, and Golden Grizzly teams captured league titles in men’s and women’s soccer and men’s and women’s swimming and diving; and saw the school’s first individual league champion in track and field. The OU basketball programs were the only teams in The Summit League to beat ranked opponents, and Oakland University also played host to The Summit League women’s soccer and men’s and women’s swimming and diving championships. In the coming year, OU will host the men’s soccer championship and will once again host the men’s and women’s swimming and diving championships. Prior to making the move into the athletics director’s office, Huth served over nine years as an Associate Athletics Director and Assistant Athletics Director, including a one-year stint OU’s Senior Associate Athletics Director where he was in charge of supervising the department’s operations. While an assistant director, Huth’s primary responsibilities were in the areas of program supervision, student-athlete services, and compliance. During his time as a departmental administrator, Huth has been involved in several league and national committees. In March 2006, Huth was appointed to a four-year term on the NCAA Swimming & Diving Committee. He has also served on the NCAA’s Academic/Eligibility/Compliance Cabinet (200105) and served as the tournament manager for the first and second-round games in the 2006 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament hosted by Oakland at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Huth currently serves as a member of The Summit League Joint Council, the league’s Budget Committee and Competition

26

Committee, and also chairs the Men’s & Women’s Swimming & Diving Sport Committee. The strides made by the athletics program during Huth’s tenure should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with his track record as a coach. Huth spent 11 years as the head coach of OU’s women’s swimming and diving program, establishing the Oakland program as the premier program in the country at the Division II level. His teams finished in the top three nationally in nine consecutive seasons, winning five consecutive national championships and three consecutive second-place finishes from 1990-97. Huth was named the NCAA Division II Coach of the Year three times for his team’s accomplishments. Only Kenyon College (17 consecutive Division III titles from 1984-2000) and Truman State University (six consecutive Division II titles from 2001-06) have posted more consecutive national championships in women’s swimming and diving, while only Texas (five consecutive Division I titles from 198488) and Stanford (five consecutive Division I titles from 199296) have matched the total of five straight, which stood as a Division II record until 2006. Huth began his coaching career at Oakland in 1985 as an assistant coach with the men’s swimming and diving program, a position he held for two years before taking the reins of the women’s program. Huth remained as the women’s head coach until 1998, when he stepped down to focus on his position as Assistant Athletics Director as OU made the move to Division I. But before Huth became well-known as the highly-successful coach of OU’s women’s swimming program, he earned recognition as one of the top swimmers in the nation. Arguably the most accomplished student-athlete in OU history, Huth earned a rare 24 All-America honors, claiming 13 individual national championships. Huth was a four-time national champion in both the 200- and 400-yard individual medley, and was named NCAA Division II Swimmer of the Year three times. He remains the only swimmer in NCAA history to have won both the 200 and 400 IM four times. In 2002 Huth had the unique honor of being selected to the Oakland University Lepley Hall of Honor for a second time. He and is the only member to be enshrined twice. Originally named to the Hall in 1990 for his swimming accomplishments as a student-athlete, his second honor was in recognition of his coaching accomplishments. Huth earned his bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Oakland in 1985, and in 1996, Huth earned his master’s degree in sports administration from Wayne State University. He currently resides in Clarkston with his wife Jenny and two children, Kara and Chance.

THIS IS ROCHESTER

During the holiday season the city of Rochester comes alive! A short drive down Main Street allows local businesses to show off their “true colors� as they combine to show off their holiday spirit by covering the facades of their buildings with multicolored lights.

THIS IS ROCHESTER

The holiday season isn’t the only time that Rochester comes alive. The downtown area offers some of the best shopping in the metro Detroit area. And if shoppers can’t find what they’re looking for here, Great Lakes Crossing in Auburn Hills and the Somerset Collection in Troy are just minutes away.

THE OU SOCCER FIELD

Opened for play in 2001, the OU Soccer Field has housed the very successful Oakland University men’s and women’s soccer programs that have consistently been on top of The Summit League since joining Division I in 1998. The field accommodates up to 1,000 fans, which has certainly played a factor in the Golden Grizzlies men posting a 44-18-8 record, and the Golden Grizzlies women posting a 35-24-5 record on the OU Soccer Field. In 2008, Oakland’s men soccer hosted its first NCAA College Cup game at the OU Soccer Field, where they took on 2007 College Cup runner-up Ohio State University. OU hosted the 2009 Summit League Men’s Soccer Championship and will do so again in 2010 . It is the fourth time in five seasons that the Golden Grizzlies have served as the host team. Oakland’s women has also hosted the Summit League championship three times. In addition to competing at the OU Soccer Field, both the Golden Grizzlies men’s and women’s programs will host three games at the Ultimate Soccer Arenas in Pontiac, Mich.. The complex has three full-sized indoor soccer fields, as well as locker rooms and various restaurants. OU also trains at the state-of-the-art facility.
