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.
