Stacy Tutt, former Spider QB and NFL player, returns as assistant coach

The University of Richmond's football coaching staff has added two new members to its ranks. Stacy Tutt, a former Spiders quarterback who spent two years in the NFL as a fullback for the New York Jets, will join the staff as an assistant coach, and Chris Stewart, who has worked at the University of Tennessee for the past 11 years, will serve as director of strength and conditioning, according to an athletics department statement released Tuesday.
