Akron tabs Montgomery to run Zips offense

Former Miami of Ohio head coach Shane Montgomery has taken the offensive coordinator job at Akron under Zips head coach J.D. Brookhart, Rivals.com has learned.

Montgomery compiled a 17-31 record from 2005-08 at Miami. He led the RedHawks to MAC East Division titles in 2005 and 2007 but failed to take the school to a bowl. Prior to ascending to the head coaching spot, Montgomery was offensive coordinator for the RedHawks under Terry Hoeppner, helping develop Ben Roethlisberger.

Montgomery, a star quarterback at NC State from 1987-89, replaces Joe Moorhead, who took the offensive coordinator job at Connecticut.
