Hutchins comes to Dartmouth for his first season in 2016-17 after serving as the head coach at New Hampton School — where he went to school — in New Hampton, New Hampshire, for the previous nine years. In 2015-16, he was named the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) AAA Coach of the year after leading the Huskies to a 21-8 record, and twice he led New Hampton to the NEPSAC AAA Championship game (2011 and ’14).
Six of his players went on to play in the Ivy League, and two others were eventually selected in the NBA Draft — Noah Vonleh (ninth overall in 2014) and Olivier Hanlan (42nd overall in 2015). His former players were represented at 13 different Division I institutions in 2015-16, including Kansas, Notre Dame, Gonzaga and Syracuse.
Prior to his tenure at New Hampton School, Hutchins spent the 2006-07 school year as an assistant coach at Williams College under Dave Paulsen, currently the head coach at George Mason. That Eph team won the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Championship, and the players Hutchins helped recruit for the class of 2011 eventually played in consecutive Division III Final Fours and a national championship game.
After studying for one year at the University of New Hampshire, Hutchins completed his bachelor’s of arts in history at Plymouth State in 2005. A team captain during his senior season, he also helped the Panthers to a school-best 24-6 record and the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament as a junior.
