Montgomery named Associate HC at Duke

Posted February 11, 2013

— Duke announced Monday that former Blue Devils wide receiver and Shelby, North Carolina native, Scottie Montgomery, has been named associate head coach under David Cuttcliffe.

Montgomery will also serve as the offensive coordinator of the passing game.

“I am extremely happy to be at Duke University,” Montgomery said. “We have the best football program in college football because of, first and foremost, David Cutcliffe. And when I had the ability to come back and work for him, it made things a lot easier than a lot of people might think."

Montgomery has spent the last three seasons as the wide receivers coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers following a four-year stint at Duke in the same role.

“When myself and Kurt Roper and the offensive staff got together and looked at the possibilities across the country to replace two coaches, we started in one place,” Cutcliffe said. “We wanted to hire the best football coach that we could hire and who we thought was the best football coach in America. That came to Scottie Montgomery – it started there; nowhere else.”

During his four-year coaching tenure at Duke, Montgomery coached two-time All-ACC wide receiver Eron Riley and recruited Conner Vernon and Donovan Varner. 

Montgomery played at Duke before going undrafted in 2000. He spent four seasons in the NFL with the Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. Two of those seasons were spent on practice squads, but he made his debut for the Broncos in 2000. Montgomery played in the Arena Football League in 2005 for the Georgia Force.

At Duke, Montgomery finished his career second all-time in the program’s history with 171 catches and third in yards at 2,379. He now ranks fourth and sixth in those categories, respectively.

He is one of four players to lead the program in receptions in three consecutive years and is one of just six two-time team MVPs in school history.

    Think he did a good job in Pittsburgh. Our problems with the wide outs were the dropped passes and fumbles after the catch, dont think that was coaches fault, but hey you have to blame someone. Good luck coach.

    He should be a welcome addition to Duke's coaching staff - win-win for Montgomery and Coach Cut.

    He will get to work with a great coach. He should be happy to come back home. Duke always has great receivers and QB's.
