Delaware strength coach moving to Tulane

NEW ORLEANS — Russell Barbarino, the director of strength and conditioning at Delaware for the past six seasons, has been named to the same position at Tulane, the Green Wave athletic department announced last week.

At Tulane, Barbarino will have responsibility for overseeing the strength and conditioning programs for each of the school's 320 student-athletes in 16 sports programs. He will direct a staff of three full-time assistant strength coaches and supervise the Green Wave weight room located in the James Wilson Center.

His duties will include working with other members of the Tulane student services staff and with Wave coaches to develop an overall wellness program, including nutrition and dietary education.

"We're very excited to welcome Russell to the staff," stated Tulane Senior Associate Athletic Director Maria Ochoa, who announced Barbarino's appointment to the position last week. "He brings great enthusiasm and knowledge to this position. I'm confident that all of our student-athletes will benefit from his experience."

At Delaware, Barbarino supervised the strength and conditioning effort for 23 men's and women's sports programs and 800 student-athletes. Among the teams he worked with was the Blue Hens' 2003 NCAA Division I-AA National Champion football squad.

"I look forward to helping Tulane athletes reach unparalleled heights, not only in Conference USA, but on the national level as well," Barbarino stated in a Tulane news release. "Tulane provides an opportunity to work with nationally-ranked athletic programs, and the coaching staff and administration made me feel very welcome and a part of the Green Wave family from the moment I set foot on campus. I knew immediately this was a place where I wanted to be."

Prior to going to Delaware, Barbarino spent four years as assistant strength and conditioning coach at Florida State University from 1995-99, where he worked with the Seminoles' nationally-prominent football program, as well as the men's swimming and diving, men's tennis and women's basketball teams.

A native of New York, Barbarino is a graduate of Kean (NJ) University, where he was a letter-winner in football. He received a master's degree from Florida State in 1997.

Barbarino will begin his duties at Tulane on May 16.
