Nutt’s coaching experiences include two seasons as an assistant coach at Eastern Michigan University and a season at William Jewell as defensive line coach. Nutt was the head coach in 2012 at Pike County High School after serving as defensive coordinator at the school in 2011. After graduating from William Jewell, Nutt was an assistant football coach at Fair Grove High School in 2009 and 2010.
“Coach Nutt has a strong pedigree as a coach that makes him a great hire for our program. When we set out to make this hire, we filtered candidates based on the priorities of teaching/mentoring, recruiting, and coordinating defense. With Lynn, I have no doubt, we have hired the total package guy. He has experiences as a high school head coach, NAIA assistant, and Division I assistant which will serve him well in his role here at Dordt. In addition to having a very sharp football mind, Nutt has his a personality that will draw people to want to work hard for him,” said Dordt College head football coach Penner.
Nutt was a four-year member of the William Jewell football team and graduated from William Jewell in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. He completed a Masters of Education in May 2011 fron Southwest Baptist University.
“I am very excited at the opportunity to join the Dordt family. I think it’s important for young men to be aware of the environment they are entering when making their college decision, and I can’t think of a better place than Dordt College. It is important to surround yourself with the right people, both in life and when building a football program. When you have the right people in the right spots, everything else follows. I’m pleased to join a staff and school that is ready to make a difference by recruiting the right kind of people. My wife and I are excited to join the Christian community at Dordt and contribute to the future of the program,” said Nutt.
