Montgomery To The Steelers

Scottie Montgomery will be joining the PIttsburgh Steeler coaching staff sources confirmed to TDD.

Montgomery joined the Duke coaching staff in 2006 under then head coach Ted Roof. He was re-hired by head coach David Cutcliffe when the coaching staff changes were made.

Two of the top receivers in the program's history studied under Montgomery in the form of Eron Riley and Jomar Wright. Riley, a two-time All-ACC selection, capped an outstanding career in 2008 by catching 61 passes for 693 yards and eight touchdowns. He went on to sign a free agent contract with the NFL's Baltimore Ravens following the season. Wright, a senior captain in 2007, had 56 grabs for 599 yards and five touchdowns during his final campaign. Both players rank among Duke's all-time leaders in career receptions and yards.

Sources confirm that Montgomery has accepted a similar position with head coach Mike Tomlin. An official announcement is expected in the coming days.
