Iowa’s All-Time Leading Receiver Named Head Coach of Cedar Rapids Titans
The Cedar Rapids Titans have their third coach in franchise history, and it's a very familiar face to Iowa football fans.
The Titans announced via a Tuesday press release that they've agreed to a two-year contract with Marvin McNutt to become the team's new Head Coach and Director of Corporate Partnerships. McNutt is Iowa's all-time leading receiver in touchdowns and yardage for a single season and career. He finished his career at Iowa in 2011 when he was named First Team All-Big Ten during his senior season. His career numbers include 170 catches for 2,861 yards and 28 touchdowns.
McNutt was drafted in the sixth round of the 2012 draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. He also was with the Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers before his career ended in 2014.
Titans General Manager and co-owner Chris Kokalis says McNutt will replace Mark Stoute, who coached the Titans to a 41-17 record and four consecutive IFL United Conference Championship appearances. Stoute has accepted the position of Director of Player Personnel/Assistant Head Coach of the Jacksonville Sharks of the Arena Football League.
The 2017 schedule for the Titans, their 6th in Cedar Rapids, has not yet been announced.
