Under his direction as coordinator, Aurora's defense totaled 28 All-Conference selections, eight all-region players, four All-Americans and one NACC Defensive Player of the Year.
Cutkomp was a graduate assistant coach on the defensive line at Carroll University (Wis.) from 2003-04. He was also a student assistant coach at Wartburg College. Cutkomp played tight end for Wartburg and graduated with a bachelor's degree in elementary education in 2003. He later received his master's degree in education from Carroll (Wis.) in 2007.
