Biography

Scott McCurley enters his 10th season with the Packers and his second as assistant linebackers coach, having been promoted to the position on Feb. 7, 2014, following a five-year tenure as the team’s defensive quality control coach.

He was initially hired by Head Coach Mike McCarthy in April 2006 as a coaching administrative intern, promoted to coaching administrator in January 2007, and promoted again to defensive quality control coach on Feb. 3, 2009.

In his new role, McCurley works in support of associate head coach/linebackers Winston Moss to oversee the direction and preparation of both the inside and outside linebackers for the Packers’ 3-4 defense. In 2014, he helped Moss utilize the versatility of LB Clay Matthews, who started four games at LOLB, six at ROLB and six at MLB. Matthews, who made his fifth Pro Bowl, started six of the final eight games on the inside, helping Green Bay’s run defense yield 86.4 yards per game in the second half of the season, No. 5 in the NFL over that span.

During his time as quality control coach, McCurley spent different seasons assisting with various positions throughout the defense, most recently with the outside linebackers in 2013.

Additionally, his duties as quality control coach included breaking down opponent game film, analyzing their offensive tendencies and working closely to assist defensive coordinator Dom Capers in the unit’s weekly game-plan preparation.

As the coaching administrator, McCurley also assisted in preparing the team’s weekly game plan, preparing game film, and compiling player statistics and grades. His practice responsibilities included working with the scout team and assisting Moss with coaching linebackers.

Before coming to Green Bay, McCurley enjoyed a lengthy playing and coaching career at the University of Pittsburgh. Initially a walk-on athlete who redshirted his first year, he earned a scholarship after his freshman season and lettered all four years at linebacker (1999-2002).

McCurley holds the distinction of having the last interception and field-goal block in Pitt Stadium, which closed after the ’99 season, both achievements recorded in a 37-27 victory against Notre Dame. That same season, he earned a spot on the Big East All-Academic football team and graduated in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in movement science with a coaching minor.

After graduation, McCurley remained with the program as a defensive graduate assistant. The 2004 team he coached won the Big East championship and a spot in the Fiesta Bowl. McCurley also assisted with coaching the scout team, which was quarterbacked for a year by Joe Flacco, who later transferred to Delaware and became a first-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2008.

Born Aug. 1, 1980, in New Castle, Pa., McCurley attended Mohawk High School in Bessemer, Pa., where he earned all-conference honors his junior and senior years, playing linebacker and offensive line. He also played basketball.

McCurley and his wife, Colleen, live in De Pere, Wis., with their sons, Quentin, 7, and Deacon, 5.
