Andy Russo (born May 26, 1948) was a college basketball coach at Louisiana Tech and at Washington. He compiled a 60–61 record through four seasons at Washington, and resigned after he led the Huskies to a pair NCAA post season appearances and one NIT tournament after their 1989 season.[1] He had a better record at Louisiana Tech. In 1983, Russo's Bulldogs team ended Lamar University's home game winning streak, thus earning the university's first NCAA men's bid to the "Big Dance." During the 1984 season, Louisiana Tech went 29–3, and had the best season in school history. His overall record at Louisiana Tech was 122–55. Co-Captained the Lake Forest College Basketball team in 1970 with Mike Maiman.[2]
