HEAD COACH ADAM HUTCHINSON

Adam Hutchinson is in his fourth season as head basketball coach at Washington and Lee.

Hutchinson came to Washington and Lee after spending two seasons as the head coach at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. In those two seasons, he led the Spartans to a 14-36 overall record while rebuilding the program. His initial recruiting class included eight players, most notably Carson Oren, the 2003 University Athletic Association Rookie of the Year.

Prior to CWRU, Hutchinson was the head coach at Stevens Institute of Technology from 1999-01, compiling a 19-31 overall mark. His second season resulted in a 12-13 overall record, a five-game improvement over his first campaign.

Hutchinson began his collegiate coaching career in 1994 as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Amherst College. In his two seasons with the Lord Jeffs, he was responsible for recruiting the school's second all-time leading scorer in All-American Jamal Wilson and helping lead the team to the NCAA Division III Elite Eight.

In 1996, Hutchinson assumed the role of player and coach with the Cardiff Clippers of the English National Basketball League before spending the 1997-98 and 1998-99 seasons as an assistant coach at Emory University.

Originally a walk-on player at Amherst, Hutchinson started two seasons at guard in leading the Lord Jeffs to the ECAC Tournament each year. He was named team captain as a senior.

Hutchinson graduated from Amherst in 1993 with a bachelor of arts in African-American studies and earned his master of science in sport management from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in 1997. He and his wife, Erin, have two sons, Jason and Donald.
