Mark Hutson enters his first season as tight ends coach for the Silver and Black. Hutson, a 25-year veteran of the college game as both a player and coach, spent the past five seasons as an assistant at Tulane, serving as the interim head coach for the Green Wave in 2011.

Prior to being named interim head coach in October 2011, Hutson served as offensive line coach for five seasons at Tulane. In 2010, Hutson’s offensive line led the way for Orleans Darkwa, who rushed for a Tulane freshman record 925 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also helped the Wave’s ground game churn up 127.5 yards per game and score 17 touchdowns. Tulane’s aerial game averaged 245.8 yards per game, protected by Hutson’s group, and scored 19 touchdowns.

In 2009, Hutson’s offensive line paved the way for Andre Anderson, a Doak Walker candidate who rushed for 1,016 yards and eight touchdowns. Behind a Hutson-tutored offensive line, Anderson became the second Tulane running back to surpass 1,000 yards in a single season.

During his first season with the Green Wave, Hutson’s line spring-boarded Matt Forte, who rushed for a school-record 2,127 yards, the seventh-best rushing performance in NCAA history. In addition, three of Hutson’s players received all-conference honors, including honorable mention selections Troy Kropog and Michael Parenton, while Andrew Nierman was named Freshman All-America by The Sporting News.
