Default Scottie Montgomery to be OC for Duke University

Steelers' WR coach Montgomery leaves for job at Duke

By Ed Bouchette

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin will have yet another opening on his coaching staff to fill because assistant Scottie Montgomery is taking a job with Duke University.

Montgomery coached the Steelers' wide receivers the past three seasons. He will become the offensive coordinator at Duke, a source told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Montgomery coached the wide receivers at Duke, his alma mater, for four seasons before joining the Steelers staff in 2010.

He was among Duke's all-time leading receivers.

Tomlin has hired two coaches since the end of the season, Jack Bicknell Jr. as his offensive line coach and Danny Smith to coach the special teams. He still has not filled one other position.

-- I really liked Scottie, too. Oh well, another opening for us.

I dunno, the value of the "Young Money Crew" sure took a major hit last year. Their drops ( no pun intended) in their level of play from 2011 was staggering. Beside our defensive sencondary, I've never seen a group of so many gifted athletes struggle to hold onto a ball, like they have blisters on their fingers ( not exactly a discounted possibility).

I mean, that could be attributed to a new offensive scheme and the growing pains that come with it. Granted, the amount of drops was inexcusable but I think the drops could just be a symptom of the growing pains that come with a new offensive scheme and ultimately, the confusion that comes with it.

I did like Scottie, though. It's probably not easy to turn a 6th round pick into a 1000 yard receiver - especially as a number 2. I was looking forward to seeing him progress Manny this year and see what he could turn him into.

I'm happy with this. Hopefully we get an upgrade.

I hear what you are saying and will take that under advisement LOL!!

Seriously, no doubt there was some serious confusion going on out there, especially with AB. He doesn't come across as being light in the cranial department, but man... where was his brain??? AB is a solid talent no doubt. Paying him top dollar for at best a #2 receiver was a huge mistake by our front office, like the contracts for Woodley, and Colon were, and has us firmly entrenched in the grip of cap hell.


I like Manny Sanders too, but the guy is always hurt. Didn't he play the last 5 weeks of the season with a significant shoulder injury? 2011 it was a laundry list?? The last SuperBowl it was??

As for Wallace.pretty much he played like a guy expecting a big check and needed to be healthy to collect it. If you think I'm joking, go back and watch this past season on NFL Rewind. Then rewatch the 2011 season......

Back to Scottie, I liked what he did with these kids until they fully bought into the money aspects of the game. Last year was not good regardless of who what where why and when.

I don't recall anybody mentioning a WR coach being creditied with making the difference in a team winning or not.
