Scottie to Steel City
Duke legend and current receivers coach Scottie Montgomery is headed north, where he was named the new receivers coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes just became a bit more dangerous...
I hope all the Dudes join me in sending off Scottie with plenty of love. Along with Spencer Romine, he's the man who truly put the air in Airborne, and added a lot of style to the Duke lockerroom. I'll remember him fighting off tears after his last home game (which began with a kickoff return for a TD), and I'll remember jumping up and down on my couch listening to the '99 Duke-UVa game. On the last play he picked up a fumble, threw toward Romine, and Richmond Flowers grabbed it for the game-tying, miracle TD. My three favorite players involved in one crazy TD which ultimately led to Carl Franks' first win. And the rest, as they say, was history.
