As one of the Blue Devils’ top talent hawks, Duke wide receivers coach Scottie Montgomery rarely gets a break from life on the recruiting trail. But the tireless drive and efforts of the 31-year old have paid off. The lone holdover from former head coach Ted Roof’s staff to be retained by David Cutcliffe after he took over in December 2007, Montgomery has played a crucial role in a string of recent recruiting successes. He has earned commitments from senior quarterback Thaddeus Lewis and incoming four-star running back Desmond Scott, and perhaps most important, Montgomery has been instrumental in revitalizing Duke’s recruiting reputation inside North Carolina.
Will Flaherty, who wrote about Montgomery for the April 10 print edition of The Chronicle, discusses his piece with Ben Cohen.
