Cedar Rapids Titans name Hawkeye Marvin McNutt head coach

Posted: Updated:

The Cedar Rapids Titans, who will enter their sixth indoor football league season in February, have named University of Iowa's all time wide receiver Marvin McNutt as the team's third head coach in franchise history. 

The team and McNutt agreed on a two year contract earlier this week. 

McNutt will replace Mark Stoute who has accepted the position of Director of Player Personnel/Assistant head Coach of the arena's football league, Jacksonville Sharks. 

McNutt enters his first season of Titans head coach after spending time at football's highest level, the National Football League. He was drafted in the sixth round of the 2012 draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. After his time with the Eagles, he had stops with the Miami Dolphins before ending his NFL career in 2014 when he was a member of the Carolina Panthers. 

The Missouri native is the University of Iowa Hawkeyes all-time leader in receiving touchdowns and yardage. He finished his career at Iowa with 170 receptions for 2,861 yards and 28 touchdowns. During that season he was named First Team All Big Ten. 

In addition to coaching, McNutt will also serve as the team's Director of Corporate Partnerships. He will also work with Titans front office members to bring in other former Hawkeyes for appearances throughout the 2017 season.
