Russell White to become Crespi's athletic director
Basketball Coach Russell White (not the same Russell White that was the star running back at Crespi in the 1980s) will take on the additional duties as athletic director at Encino Crespi, President Father Tom Batsis announced on Wednesday.
He will replace Matt Luderer, the athletic director since 2008.
Batsis said the move was made as part of a cost-cutting move.
"Matt has done a wonderful job," Batsis said.
For years, the late former Crespi basketball coach, Paul Muff, also served as athletic director.
