Did Scottie Montgomery leave as #Steelers WR coach to join Duke as assistant, or was he pushed? It has to be the
Montgomery last week left the Steelers to take a job at Duke. We’re told that job will be as co-coordinator of the offense. Duke PR said their current coordinator, Kurt Roper, will remain their coordinator, but then the school announced Montgomery will be the passing game coordinator and coach the wide receivers, which he coached for four years before joining the Steelers in 2010.
We’re also told that Montgomery will be the heir apparent when Duke coach David Cutcliffe, 58, retires or whatever.
There are a couple of odd things about this, taken on the surface of it. Montgomery played at Duke and was the wide receivers coach at Duke for four seasons before Mike Tomlin hired him in 2010.
