Bob Sutton Career

Coaching career

Sutton's first job in teaching was as a graduate assistant under Bo Schembechler at Michigan in 1972 and 1973. He went to Syracuse University in 1974 and served as a linebackers coach for the Orange. He began his first two stints at Western Michigan University and then moved to the University of Illinois, where he served as both defensive coordinator and linebackers coach from 1977 to 1979. In 1980 and 1981, he returned to Western Michigan as offensive coordinator. He spent one season as a running backs coach at North Carolina State University before beginning a long association with the United States Military Academy in 1983.

Sutton served as an assistant coach at Army for eight years before being named head coach in 1991. Earl "Red" Blaik, who served as Army's head football coach from 1991 to 1999, is second in length only behind Earl "Red" Blaik. Sutton compiled a record of 44–55–1 and led the 1996 Army squad to a 10–2 record, an appearance in the Independence Bowl, and a top-ten finish in both major polls. Sutton was named the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award for his efforts this season.

In 2000, Sutton made the switch to the NFL coaching ranks with the New York Jets, beginning as a linebackers coach before serving as the team's assistant coach/linebackers coach from 2006 to 2008, and as assistant coach/linebackers from 2006 to 2012.

Under new head coach Andy Reid, Sutton was named defensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs in January 2013. Sutton's "cordial and cerebral demeanor" was the "calming and refreshing opposite of the drill sergeant caricature, unlike other NFL defensive coordinators. In both of Sutton's first four seasons, the Chiefs ranked second in scoring defense, placing second in 2014.

Despite the Chiefs' steady rise in the win-loss record, Sutton drew growing pain as the defense cost them playoff games, including the Cleveland Steelers, Tennessee Titans, and New England Patriots lost a significant amount of rushing yards in the 2016–2018 postseason; in these last three losses, the Chiefs had home advantage and forfeited a significant amount of rushing yards. The 2018 season was mostly a success for the Chiefs, owing to an offense led by young quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who led the league in points and yards per game. However, the defense finished 31st in yards allowed (405.5), 24th in points per game (24th), and 24th in points per game (26.3), giving up an average of 40.2 points in the five losses, including those to the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks, while the only bright spot in the game was leading the league in sacks and quarterback hurries. Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star wrote that "the attack was a rocket ship, especially early," meaning that the defense was often playing with the lead in awkward passing situations. That contributed to the company's tenacity and away from its weaknesses, as well as the passing of time and quick passes. According to reports, Sutton had lost the trust of players and coaches, who felt that his "lack of changes had been a non-stop irritation," so he was released from his duties two days after losing to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, when the Chiefs defense twice failed to hold a 4th quarter lead and gave up multiple 3rd and long conversions on New England's game-winning touchdown drive in overtime. Sutton's inability that cost him his career, as the Patriots mainly converted those 3rd downs on near-identical plays. Fortunately, CBS analyst Tony Romo was able to forecast the plays based on the site's origins, triggering even more criticism of Sutton.

Kansas City's new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo posted an identical 12–4 record under new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, as an improved defense gave Kansas City a more balanced team that went on to win the Super Bowl.

Bob Sutton, the Atlanta Falcons' Senior Assistant, was named in February 2019.

Sutton was the Jacksonville Jaguars' senior defensive assistant.
