Duke WR coach Montgomery is now OC
February 10, 2014
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke has promoted receivers coach Scottie Montgomery to offensive coordinator.
Coach David Cutcliffe announced Montgomery's promotion Monday.
Montgomery had been considered the favorite to replace Kurt Roper after he left in December for the same coordinator's job at Florida.
Cutcliffe says Montgomery will also work with Duke's quarterbacks and will call the offensive plays.
The promotion leaves a vacancy on the staff for a receivers coach and Cutcliffe says graduate assistant Jeff Faris is working with the wideouts during spring practice.
Montgomery was Duke's leading receiver three times during his four-year playing career from 1996-99.
He was on the Blue Devils' staff from 2006-09 before the Pittsburgh Steelers hired him to coach their receivers from 2010-12. He returned to his alma mater before last season.
