Morgan Scalley, Utah’s eighth-year safeties’ coach, undertakes his first season as the special teams’ coordinator in 2015. He continues to serve as the team’s recruiting coordinator as well, a position he has held since 2009.
Scalley, a second-team All-America safety for Utah’s 2004 Fiesta Bowl team, is in his 10th year overall on the staff, having first apprenticed as an administrative assistant in 2006 and a graduate assistant working with the linebackers in 2007.
He has tutored some of the best safeties in the conference in his first seven years. Robert Johnson was a first-team all-Mountain West Conference selection in 2009 and a fifth-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans. Brian Blechen and Eric Rowe began their careers as Freshman All-Americans and earned all-Pac-12 honorable mention honors in 2014.
Scalley has also achieved success as a recruiter. Rivals.com rated Utah’s 2012 recruiting class as the country’s 25th best while Scout.com gave the Utes a No. 32 ranking. In 2011, Rivals.com tabbed Scalley as one of the top recruiters in the Pac-12 and a ‘recruiting coordinator on the rise.’
In 2010, Rivals.com named him its top non-BCS recruiter of the year and one of the Top 25 recruiters in the nation overall. Rivals.com ranked Utah’s 2010 recruiting class as the best by a school from a non-automatic qualifying conference and 32nd overall.
Scalley was the MWC co-Defensive Player of the Year, a unanimous first-team all-conference selection and a second-team Associated Press and SI.com All-American as a senior in 2004. A four-year letterman from 2001-04, he was a second-team all-MWC defensive back in 2003 and an honorable mention all-MWC punt returner in 2001 and 2002.
As a senior in 2004, he captained a Utah team that went 12-0, won the Fiesta Bowl as the first non-BCS team to play in a BCS bowl game and finished No. 4 in the nation.
Scalley was a two-time first-team Academic All-American (2003-04), the 2004 Anson Mount Scholar Athlete of the Year and the 2004 MWC Scholar Athlete of the Year. He was awarded two post-graduate scholarships, including one from the NCAA.
He was presented with the inaugural Pat Tillman award during the 2005 East-West Shrine Game, recognizing him for his character, intelligence, sportsmanship and service.
After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the U. with a 3.96 GPA, Scalley earned a master’s degree in business.
