Former East Carolina coach Scottie Montgomery and DeMatha Catholic High School coach Elijah Brooks were among six assistant coaches officially named to Mike Locksley’s new staff at Maryland, the university announced Thursday.

Montgomery will serve as the Terrapins’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach after East Carolina fired him after three seasons.

Brooks will be Locksley’s running backs coach and reunite with 10 former DeMatha players he coached, including returning backs Lorenzo Harrison III and Anthony McFarland Jr.

In addition, John Papuchis will be the Terrapins’ special teams coordinator, John Reagan will be in charge of the offensive line, Cory Robinson will serve in the roles of “defensive passing game coordinator” and defensive backs coach and Mike Miller will be the tight ends coach.

Locksley was hired in December to replace the departed DJ Durkin, who was fired following investigations into his program culture and the death of former player Jordan McNair.
