Title: Head coach, softball
NJCAA D-II’s Region 24 Coach of the Year in softball for six years straight (2002-2007), Chuck Clutts has been head coach for Cobra Softball since 2000. During the first eight years of his career at the college, his teams won five conference and six regional titles and produced 10 NJCAA All-Americans. Chuck’s teams have finished Runner-up three times at the NJCAA Finals, some of his proudest professional accomplishments. In 2007, Chuck and the coaching staff were named the NFCA's Regional Coaching Staff of the Year. He says the family-type atmosphere and support he and his teams enjoy at Parkland make working here worthwhile.
Besides softball, Chuck enjoys golf with friends and working with the “true athletes” he coaches each semester. And you might find this former manager of a rock and roll band sitting on a Hawaiian beach whenever he can get away. Chuck is inspired by the drive to succeed; perhaps it’s no surprise that a favorite quote is “If you have to talk about what you did yesterday, then you have not done anything today.”
