AJ McLaughlin enters his first season as the tight ends coach at Husson in 2017.
Prior to joining the Eagle coaching staff, McLaughlin was a four-year letterwinner as a member of the Husson football team as a tight end and special teams player from 2013-16.

In 18 career games, he made three tackles, including two solo tackles, and one fumble recovery.
McLaughlin helped guide the Eagles to a 29-12 overall record with three ECFC Regular Season titles in 2014, 2015, and 2016, two ECFC Championships and berths to the NCAA Division III National Championship Tournament in 2014 and 2016, while helping the 2016 team set the program record wins in a single-season with nine.
Off the field, McLaughlin was named to the ECFC All-Academic Squad in 2014, 2015, and 2016 and to the National Football Foundation (NFF) Hampshire Honor Society in 2016.
McLaughlin earned a Bachelor of Science in Sport Management from Husson in 2017 and will graduate with a Master’s Degree in Business Adminstration from Husson in May of 2018.
