Duke promotes Montgomery to OC

Promoting from within, Duke University head coach David Cutcliffe announced Monday that Scottie Montgomery will be the Blue Devils' new offensive coordinator.

Montgomery rejoined the Duke staff last season as wide receivers coach. In his new role, he fills the vacancy created when Kurt Roper left after six years as offensive coordinator to take over the same position at the University of Florida.

In addition, Montgomery will be the quarterbacks coach, manning another duty held by Roper.

A wide receiver at Duke in the late 1990s, Montgomery played three seasons for the Denver Broncos. Appearing in a total of 27 games from 2000-02, he caught 16 passes for 160 yards and one touchdown.

Montgomery returned to Durham, N.C., as an assistant coach from 2006-09, then spent 2010-12 as the Pittsburgh Steelers' wide receivers coach.

All-ACC wide receiver Jamison Crowder told the Durham Herald-Sun regarding Montgomery's promotion, "He has a lot of experience, both playing football at the next level, the highest level, and coaching on the highest level. It's just going to be a great thing, great experience for the players and the coaches to have his schemes and strategies going into a ballgame. I can't wait."
