Scott is in his fifth season at his alma mater. He is UM's assistant head coach, co-offensive coordinator (with emphasis on the running game), and also oversees the offensive line. He served as the Grizzlies' recruiting coordinator his first two-plus seasons at Montana.
The last two seasons Griz tackle Danny Kistler Jr. has been named first team All-Big Sky Conference. Last year senior center Kjelby Oiland and senior guard William Poehls were named second team all-league, while junior guard Trevor Poole was a third team pick, and sophomore tackle John Schmaing was an honorable league selection.
He returned to Montana after a four-year stint as the head football coach at his former high school in his hometown of Silverton, Oregon. He took his Silverton High School teams to the state playoffs twice (2007 and 2008). His 2008 prep squad won a first-round playoff game, the school's first since 1995.
Gragg was one of the most outstanding football players in Grizzly history, earning All-America accolades at offensive tackle, and he also played in the National Football League for several seasons.
He is the only player in school history to receive Montana's Paul Weskamp Award (Outstanding Offensive Lineman) three times, earning the award in 1992, 1993, and 1994. He started in 38 games in a row his sophomore, junior, and senior seasons. He was an All-Big Sky Conference selection in 1993 and 1994. He was a three-time all-league academic team pick. He started in the 1994 East-West Shrine Game and in the Senior Bowl.
"Lurch" played 11 seasons in the National Football League with the New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers, and New York Jets. He started in 151 NFL games, including 112 in a row. He was named to the NFL's All-Pro team in 2002 and received the Bobb McKittrick Award (Outstanding Offensive Lineman) while playing for the 49ers. Scott was a second round NFL draft pick in 1995 by the Giants.
In February of 2009 he and former Griz football All-American lineman Steve Okoniewski (1970-71) were inducted into the Grizzly Sports Hall of Fame.
He is a 1995 graduate of Montana with a degree in mathematics. He attained his Masters in Teaching in 2009 at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon. Scott and his wife Toni have a daughter, Anna, 16, and a son, Brian, 14.
