About Coach Hunter Hughes

Hunter Hughes is in his seventh season as CSU-Pueblo’s defensive coordinator.
Helping to forge the CSU-Pueblo defense since the program’s reboot in 2008, Hughes has consistently put defenses on the field that only lead the RMAC, but rank among the top units in the nation.
One of the most decorated Division II coordinators in the nation, Hughes was the recipient of the FootballScoop.com Division II Coordinator of the Year award in 2011, due in large part to the performance of CSU-Pueblo’s punishing defense during its 11-0 regular season. The ThunderWolves allowed a national-best 10.33 points per game in 2011 and intercepted the ball 26 times, also best in the country.
The performance of the 2011 team under Hughes’ leadership was certainly not an anomaly - in the ThunderWolves’ first four years of existence as a program, the team finished in the top 25 nationally in points allowed three times (including a finish of 9th in the nation in 2010).
More recently, Coach Hughes led the ThunderWolves defense as the team won the NCAA Division II National Championship earning him a finalist for D-2 Coordinator of the Year. Hughes’ defense was the first team in 17 years to shutout their National Championship opponent. They also finished nationally ranked including:

  • 1st in the country in points allowed – 12.8
  • 1st in the country in defensive touchdowns – 7
  • 1st in the country in turnovers gained – 43
  • 1st in the country in interceptions – 29
  • 4th in the country in sacks per game
  • 4th in the country in turnover margin
  • 6th in the country in third down conversations
  • 13th in the country in total defense
  • 17th in the country in rushing defense

Hughes rose through the ranks as a coaching assistant with two of the most prestigious Division I football programs in the country - University of Colorado and the University of Tennessee.
With the University of Colorado, Hughes was a defensive graduate assistant from 2003-2006, assisting in coaching various defensive positions as well as assisting in recruiting prospective CU students east of the Mississippi River. With the University of Tennessee, Hughes also served as a defensive graduate assistant, focusing chiefly on linebackers and defensive backs.
Hughes received his Master’s in physical education and sport management from Middle Tennessee State University in 2001.
