During the 2014-15 season, Hutchinson coached Clayton Murtha to ODAC Rookie of the Year, VaSID Rookie of the Year and D3hoops.com South Region Rookie of the Year Awards, as the team finished 11-16 overall and advanced to the ODAC Tournament quarterfinals. Murtha also became the first rookie member of the Generals to earn First Team All-ODAC honors in program history.

In 2013-14, W&L made the conference semifinals for the second time under coach Hutchinson. The team entered the tournament as the No. 11 seed, and became the first No. 11 seed in the history of the ODAC to win a game or reach the semifinals. The Generals lost to eventual champion Virginia Wesleyan, and finished with an 8-20 record.

With the team's victory in the opening game of the 2012-13 season, Hutchinson became the second coach in school history to reach the 100-win plateau. Hutchinson's 2012-13 team finished the year 13-13, before losing in the first round of the ODAC Tournament. Andrew Franz ’16 was named the ODAC and VaSID Rookie of the Year. Franz is only the second W&L player to earn the ODAC honor and the first to receive the VaSID award.

Hutchinson led W&L to the ODAC Championship game in 2009, becoming the first No. 8 seed to advance to the finals in the history of the tournament. W&L finished the 2008-09 season with a 16-13 overall record, marking the first time in 20 years that the Generals recorded back-to-back campaigns with a winning record. In 2010, the Generals continued their strong play with a 17-10 record and a trip to the ODAC quarterfinals. The 17 wins marked the most wins by a W&L team since the 1988-89 season.

Hutchinson was named the 2008 Old Dominion Athletic Conference Coach of the Year after guiding W&L to a 15-11 overall record, at the time its best mark in nearly two decades. The Generals also went 11-7 in conference play and earned the fifth seed for the ODAC Tournament. Hutchinson also helped mentor Greg Bienemann '08 to First Team All-ODAC honors for the second-straight season.

W&L's 2007-08 campaign followed an 11-14 record in 2006-07.  The 11 wins were a seven-game improvement from the season before and helped to elevate the Generals' program into a winner.

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 14-35 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.

Transportation

Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.

The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. 

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.
