WOAY – Bluefield College named Russell Norton the new head coach of its men’s volleyball program on Monday. Norton succeeds Buddy Gallemore, who had been the head coach of both the men’s and women’s teams since 2015; Gallemore will continue to lead the Lady Rams.
Norton, a native of Shallotte, North Carolina, first came to Bluefield in 2014 as an assistant coach for the Rams football team under Ordell Walker. He plans to bring his football coaching philosophy to the volleyball court, notably his core belief of RAM (Respect, Atmosphere, and Maturity).
Norton will coach the defensive line for Rams football as they begin their first season under Dewey Lusk.
