Daylon Anthony McCutcheon (born December 9, 1976) is a retired National Football League cornerback who played his entire career with the Cleveland Browns.

High school career[edit]

McCutcheon played high school football at Bishop Amat Memorial High School in La Puente, California under the direction of then Head Coach, Mark Paredes. As a senior, he rushed for 2,456 yards in 1994; however he chose to play cornerback in college because his pro prospects were considered better at that position.[1]

College career[edit]

McCutcheon played college football at the University of Southern California. Although he played primarily on defense, the Trojans occasionally used him as a receiver due to his overall talent.[2] Following his senior year, he was named All-America second-team by The Sporting News and All-Pac-10 first-team. He was also a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award.

Professional career[edit]

McCutcheon played in 103 games with 96 starts and accumulated 463 tackles, 7 sacks, 12 interceptions, 63 pass breakups and 8 forced fumbles [3] for the Browns before being released on March 9, 2007.

Coaching career[edit]

Beginning in 2007, McCutcheon began coaching at his former high school.[4]

New York Jets[edit]

McCutcheon was named the New York Jets' assistant defensive backs coach on January 29, 2015.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Daylon's father, Lawrence McCutcheon, was an all-pro running back who set the since-broken Los Angeles Rams career rushing record (6,186 yards) and played in Super Bowl XIV.
