In episode 2, The Pivot speaks with Paul Rush, head men’s basketball coach at Northwest Nazarene University about building and protecting their culture.

Coach Rush has built a strong reputation for strengthening the culture of multiple programs, going all the way back to his high school coaching days.

At NNU, where he has been the head coach for three seasons, he has led the Nighthawks to their first 20 win season since moving to the NCAA Division II level back in 2001. They also got their first win over an NCAA Division I school and have qualified for the GNAC playoffs the last two seasons.
