The Indianapolis Colts are hiring former Maryland offensive coordinator Scottie Montgomery to be the new running backs coach.

Replacing the well-respected Tom Rathman, who announced his retirement from coaching this offseason, Montgomery will be filling in on the offensive coaching staff.

The news was first reported by ForTheColture and confirmed by Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.

Montgomery was a wide receiver out of Duke and went undrafted in 2000. He spent time with a few teams in the league from 2000-2003. He’s worked as the wide receivers coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers (2010-2012) before spending the last few years in the college ranks.

Montgomery was the head coach for East Carolina (2016-2018) and was most recently the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Maryland (2019-2020).

Montgomery will be working with a group led by Jonathan Taylor, who finished with the most rushing yards and was tied for the most rushing touchdowns among rookie running backs in 2020.
