Biography

Mark Hutson was named assistant offensive line coach on Jan. 22, 2016. He has 27 years of coaching experience on the college and professional levels.

During his first season with the Browns, Hutson assisted an offensive line that helped the Browns finish second in the NFL with a 4.89 rushing average. The average was the seventh-best in team history and the team’s best mark since 1966. In addition, left tackle Joe Thomas became the fifth player in NFL history to be selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his first 10 seasons. 

Prior to joining the Browns, Hutson spent the 2015 season as associate head coach and offensive line coach at Eastern Illinois University, where he previously coached for four seasons (2003-06). He served as the Panthers interim head coach in 2006, where he led EIU to an Ohio Valley Conference Championship and NCAA FCS playoff appearance. During his tenure at Eastern Illinois, the team captured two OVC titles and made the playoffs twice.

Hutson coached the tight ends for the Oakland Raiders for three seasons (2012-14) after spending five years coaching at Tulane (2007-11), including taking over as interim head coach in 2011. During his first season with the Green Wave, Hutson's offensive line paved the way for running back Matt Forte, who rushed for a school-record 2,127 yards, the seventh-highest figure in NCAA history. Tulane recorded 26 rushing scores, tied for the second-most in school history, and 2,412 total yards, the second-highest total in school annals.

After beginning his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Oklahoma in 1990, Hutson had coaching stints at Arkansas (1992, 1998-99), Murray State (1993-96), Boise State (1997) and Tulsa (2000-02). He helped Murray State capture back-to-back OVC championships. At Tulsa, he worked with Kevin Shaffer, who was selected in the 2002 NFL Draft.

A two-time All-America lineman at Oklahoma (1986-87), Hutson was a team captain and member of the Sooners' 1985 National Championship team. He was named to the Oklahoma All-Century Team and named one of the top 100 players in program history. He was a three-time All-Big Eight selection and capped his career with an appearance in the 1988 Hula Bowl All-Star game in Hawaii.

The Fort Smith, Ark. native was a third-round draft choice of the Dallas Cowboys in 1988. He returned to Oklahoma and completed his bachelor's degree in communication in 1990.

Hutson and his wife, Sherri, have two sons, Ethan and Dillion.
