Bradley takes over CAK football program

Russell Bradley, Christian Academy of Knoxville offensive coordinator the past four seasons who has tons of major college coaching experience, said he knew he was a candidate for the vacant varsity football head coaching position.

But getting that call was still something of a shock.

“I am very excited,” said Bradley, named CAK head coach last week. “I know this is where God wants me to be.”

Bradley, who came to CAK from Indiana University where he worked as the assistant recruiting coordinator, said he views coaching football as more than a profession.

“I want everything we do to be based on spiritual principles and to honor God,” he said. “I want people to see God through us. I want the players to develop and live a Christ-centered life. When you do that the wins take care of themselves.”

Crediting his father for much of his success, Bradley earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in math from Georgetown College (Ky.), then went on to work with wide receivers at Tennessee Tech.

His next stop was the University of Illinois, where Bradley assisted with recruiting.

From there he went to Louisiana Tech and worked with running backs before moving further west to the University of Colorado where he was assisted with the offensive line.

The Warriors’ head coaching position was left vacant at the end of the 2006 season when highly-respected coach Bill Young announced his retirement after 39 years coaching — the final five as CAK skipper.
