Luke Butkus
Assistant Offensive Line Coach

Biography

Luke Butkus is in his first season as the Jaguars assistant offensive line coach after joining the staff on January 28, 2013. Now in his sixth NFL season as a coach, Butkus spent two seasons with the Seattle Seahawks where he was on the same staff with Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley.

Luke Butkus is in his first season as the Jaguars assistant offensive line coach after joining the staff on January 28, 2013.  Now in his sixth NFL season as a coach, Butkus spent two seasons with the Seattle Seahawks where he was on the same staff with Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley.

Butkus spent the 2012 season as offensive line coach at his alma mater, Illinois. He was hired as part of Tim Beckman’s first staff at Illinois.

Prior to returning to his alma mater, Butkus spent five seasons working in the NFL, the last two with the Seahawks under head coach Pete Carroll as quality control assistant working with the offensive line. He worked as an offensive assistant/assistant offensive line coach with the Chicago Bears under head coach Lovie Smith from 2007-09.

Butkus began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at the University of Oregon from 2005-06, helping the Ducks to appearances in the 2005 Holiday Bowl and the 2006 Las Vegas Bowl.   

A three-year starting center at Illinois from 1999-2001, Butkus was a third-team All-America selection by the Associated Press in 2001 and was a two-time All-Big Ten selection in 2000 and 2001. He helped the Illini to a Big Ten title and an appearance in the Sugar Bowl in 2001, anchoring an offensive line that paved the way for then-school records in total points, points per game and sacks allowed. 

Butkus was signed by the Chicago Bears as a rookie free agent in 2002 and spent most of the season on the San Diego Chargers’ practice squad. He played two seasons in NFL Europe, for the Rhein Fire in 2003 and the Cologne Centurions in 2004, before moving into the coaching ranks. 

A graduate of Bloom Township High School in suburban Chicago, Butkus is a nephew of NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Dick Butkus, who played with the Bears from 1965-73. Luke’s cousin, Mark Butkus, lettered at Illinois from 1980-83, while his brother, Josh, also graduated from Illinois.

Butkus and his wife, Nici, have two sons, Benjamin and Byron.

COACHING BACKGROUND: Oregon 2005-06, Chicago Bears 2007-09, Seattle Seahawks 2010-11, Illinois 2012, Jacksonville Jaguars 2013.
