Maryland football is parting ways with offensive coordinator Scottie Montgomery and offensive line coach John Reagan, according to a source familiar with the situation.
Montgomery and Reagan were both original members of head coach Mike Locksley’s staff. Montgomery previously served as head coach of East Carolina while Reagan served as offensive coordinator at Penn.
In 2019, the Terps ranked 11th of 14 teams in the Big Ten Conference in scoring offense, seventh in rushing and 12th in passing offense. In a condensed 2020 season in which Maryland finished 2-3, the offense ranked 11th again in scoring (23.6), ninth in rushing (145.0) and third in passing (264.0).
Maryland had bright moments under Alabama transfer Taulia Tagovailoa, the younger brother of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Taulia started four games, completing 61.5% of his passes for seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. Taulia missed the season finale against Rutgers, a 27-24 overtime loss, for medical reasons after a reported positive COVID-19 test.
According to Yahoo Sports, which first reported the news of Montgomery’s departure, Cincinnati running backs coach Dan Enos is the leading contender to become Maryland’s next offensive coordinator. Enos worked as quarterbacks coach at Alabama in 2018 at the same time Locksley served as offensive coordinator under Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban.
