15_FB_FlagShot

Catawba College Head Football Coach, Curtis Walker, has announced that Marco Butler has joined the staff as the cornerbacks coach.  Butler has 16 years of coaching experience and comes to Catawba after coaching most recently at Independence High School, where he was defensive backs coach and special teams coordinator.

Butler began his coaching career at Fayetteville State University in 2001 and was on staff for a pair of conference championships teams and three NCAA II playoff squads.  In 2005, he joined the staff at Norfolk State University.

At Norfolk State, Butler served as defensive backs coach and special teams coordinator until 2013.  In 2011, Norfolk State claimed the MEAC Championship and earned the school’s first berth in the FCS Playoffs with a defense that ranked second in the nation in total defense and fourth in scoring defense.

Butler’s 2013 secondary ranked seventh in the nation in pass defense.  The Spartan defense ranked second overall with 19 interceptions and third with 33 total takeaways.  Butler moved to Hampton University for the 2014 season where he was the defensive backs coach and serves as the interim defensive coordinator.

In addition to his 15 years of collegiate coaching experience, Butler has served NFL Coaching Fellowships with the Dallas Cowboys, the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts.  He attended the NCAA-NFL Coaching Academy in Orlando, Fla., in 2011.  Butler has coached five players who have been signed in the NFL, including Don Carey, a 2009 NFL Draftee by the Cleveland Browns.

Butler played receiver and defensive back at Western Carolina, graduating in 2000 with a degree in sports management and a minor in marketing.  He and his wife, Shauna, have two children, a daughter, Eva, and a son, Marco.
