RB Coach Scottie Montgomery: Creating Competition In A Talented Room
Running backs coach Scottie Montgomery met with the media to discuss his decision to return to the NFL. A major factor in that decision was the culture from the owner on down in Indianapolis, plus the talent found in the running backs room.
From his experience working in the Pittsburgh wide receivers room he knows that it is important to create competition. The room has to be the most important thing to everyone in there as it builds a level of respect for the work: everyone knows that everyone is being held accountable.
Montgomery also touched on Marlon Mack's return from injury. He knows that Mack is working hard to get to the point where he is ready to come back. But the depth at the position helps to ensure there is not an overload of work on any one player.
