HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - The James Madison football team is searching for a new offensive coordinator.

Shane Montgomery, who served as the Dukes’ offensive coordinator for the last two seasons, is leaving the program according to a JMU athletics spokesperson. He is expected to become the offensive coordinator at Buffalo. The news was first reported by Adam Rittenberg of ESPN and Greg Madia of the Daily News-Record.

JMU head coach Curt Cignetti released the following statement about Montgomery on Wednesday:

“We really appreciate everything that Shane did for our program the last two years. He is a true professional and excellent coach. We wish Shane and his wife Sandy continued success as they embark upon their new journey.”

Montgomery joined JMU as OC after Cignetti was hired as head coach. He coordinated an offensive attack that averaged 40.0 points per game during the 2019 season and 33.6 points per game during the 2021 spring season. Montgomery also served as quarterbacks coach at James Madison.
