So much for the splashy hire. Brady Hoke was set to take the job and then wasn't. With just about everyone with a pulse mentioned as a possibility, East Carolina needed to hire someone that actually wanted this job. Duke Offensive Coordinator Scottie Montgomery was nearby, so why not him? Of course, this hire is not official and may end up being declined at the last second or Compher may just fire Montgomery before he even takes the job. At this point, nothing would surprise me.
