UNH adds to coaching staff

DURHAMThe University of New Hampshire football program has announced the hiring of Brian Scott as its new co-offensive coordinator.

Scott will be responsible for game-planning with an emphasis on the Wildcats’ running game.

“We are excited to add Scott and his wealth of experience to our coaching staff,” UNH coach Sean McDonnell said. “He will be a huge asset to the Wildcat football program on offense and more specifically the running game. He is familiar with our league and we are excited to get started.”

Scott’s most recent stop was at Towson, as the team’s offensive line coach and run-game coordinator. Prior to Towson, he spent the last 13 seasons at Old Dominion, serving as the team’s offensive coordinator each year. He was the associate head coach from 2012-19 and the offensive line coach from 2007-11.

In his time with the Monarchs, he helped Old Dominion transition from FCS to FBS into Conference USA, leading a team that was consistently one of the top offenses in college football.

Previous to ODU, Scott spent three seasons at his alma mater, the University of Maine, as the recruiting coordinator as well as working with the offensive line, running backs and tight ends.

He worked at the University of Tennessee-Martin in 2003, working with the wide receivers, tight ends and the special teams unit.

Scott’s first job as a college coach was in 2002 as the quarterbacks coach at UMass Lowell. From 2000-01, Scott was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Cony High School in Maine, helping the team reach the Class A state playoffs for the first time in 10 years.

Scott graduated from the University of Maine in 2000 with a degree in communications.  He is a recipient of the Maine Sports Hall of Fame Special Achievement Award.

The Wildcats open their spring season March 5 against UAlbany. Game time from Wildcat Stadium is 7 p.m.
