SACKVILLE, NB — Scott Brady is the new head football coach for the Mount Allison University Mounties. Brady, who is a Mount Allison graduate and has served on the coaching staff since 2010, is replacing Kelly Jeffrey who resigned as head coach earlier this month.
“We are thrilled to introduce Scott Brady as the new head coach of our Mount Allison Mounties football program,” says Pierre Arsenault, director of athletics and recreation at Mount Allison University. “What we are building with our program has been never about winning one championship. It’s about sustainable success over the long term and a big part of achieving this success is having succession planning at the leadership positions. We are very proud of Scott for having developed as our coach in our system and we look forward to his leadership guiding the next wave of our program.”
“I could not be more excited to be the head football coach at Mount Allison. This is truly a special opportunity to be the head coach at my alma mater,” says Brady. “I’m excited to keep working with this extraordinary group of young men and together we will continue to build a program that everyone associated with Mount Allison can be proud of.”
Brady is the first permanent head coach in the program’s recent history who is both a Mount Allison graduate and former player for the Mounties.
Brady has been on the Mounties coaching staff for six years. After a four-year playing career as an Academic All-Canadian, running back/receiver (2006-09), Brady became the defensive back coach and special teams coach in 2010, coaching All-Canadian cornerback Bradley Daye.
In 2011 Brady was promoted to defensive coordinator and has since coached All-Canadian defensive tackle Jacob Leblanc (2012) and All-Canadian free safety Kwame Adjei (2013) as well as 11 Conference All-Stars. In 2013 and 2014, Brady helped lead the Mounties to back-to-back AUS Championships, the first since the 1998 season.
In 2014, Brady served as the defensive back and special teams coach for the U-18 National Team that defeated Team USA 53-9 in the International Bowl. Earlier that year he also served as the defensive coordinator of the East team at the 2013 CIS East/West game in London, ON, as the defensive line coach for the IFAF World Development Team in Bradenton, Florida, and as defensive coordinator for U-18 Team New Brunswick. In 2011, he was a guest coach with the Toronto Argonauts, working primarily with the defensive line.
Originally from Oakville, ON, Brady holds a BA in psychology from Mount Allison University.
