Coach RC: A philosophy of balance and growth leads men’s track and field and cross country teams to success

If you’re a member of the University of Portland men’s track and field or cross country teams, you’re guided by a coach who has led the program to 22 NCAA Cross Country Championship appearances, 50 All-American honors, 10 Top 10 finishes at the national meet and 34 West Coast Conference cross country titles. You’re also coached by a man deeply interested in your holistic success. Rob Conner — or “RC,” as his athletes call him — the UP men’s track and cross country head coach of the last 34 seasons, is this figure, who preaches a philosophy of balance and growth that has skyrocketed the program to new heights in the collegiate running world.

The end of a career that started here

No one has put the University of Portland on the map quite like Megan Rapinoe. A professional soccer player for OL Reign FC and the United States Women’s National Team, advocate for equal pay for female players, winner of the Ballon d’Or Féminin and The Best FIFA Women’s Player of 2019 and overall one of the most accomplished athletes in the world — Rapinoe is revered in Portland as few are.
