Joe Montana Meets with University of Montana Coaches

By Beacon Staff

MISSOULA – University of Montana football coach Robin Pflugrad says NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana met with Griz football coaches this week.

Montana’s son, Nate, is a backup quarterback at Notre Dame. Pflugrad would not confirm or deny when a reporter with the University of Montana student newspaper The Kaimin asked if Tuesday’s meeting surrounded Nate Montana’s possible transfer to UM.

Pflugrad said Joe Montana has four kids and they talked about them all. He said he was aware of Nate’s situation at Notre Dame, but declined further comment. Nick Montana was a redshirt freshman at Washington in 2010.

Joe Montana played 14 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, winning four Super Bowls.

On Feb. 2, when Pflugrad announced his new recruits, he said he was still looking for a dropdown quarterback.
