Penn State Graduate Assistant Dwayne Scott Joins Pitt In the Same Role



Dave Borbely will have some help coaching the offensive linemen next season.

Dwayne Scott has made the jump from Penn State offensive graduate assistant, a position he held for the 2022 season, to an offensive graduate assistant on Pitt’s staff next season.

Scott, a former collegiate offensive lineman himself, will help Borbely work with a veteran offensive line that holds itself to a high standard while also jumping into recruiting.

Scott, who was originally a standout at Archbishop Stepinac in White Plains, New York, a two-star recruit in the class of 2015, spent time at Rhode Island and Boston College at the collegiate level.

After a collegiate career at Rhode Island, growing into a three-year starter — and captain — with the Rams, making 33 of 34 possible starts, he transferred to Boston College as a grad transfer in 2019.

He received a Bachelor of Psychology from Rhode Island and followed up with his Master’s in Sports Administration from Boston College before getting into coaching full-time at the collegiate level with Penn State last season.

Now Scott will be working with the likes of Jake Kradel, Blake Zubovic, Branson Taylor, Matt Goncalves and Ryan Jacoby on Pitt’s offensive line, working directly with an offensive line that’s surprisingly veteran entering the 2023 season. His experience and wisdom could prove a valuable asset in assisting Borbely heading forward.

Scott is considered a graduate assistant at Pitt, now the line offensive graduate assistant on the coaching staff — with room to add another. Malcolm Robinson and DeVaughn Gordon will serve as defensive graduate assistants.

Scott is also the second former Penn Stater to join Pitt this season, following Christian Veilleux, who transferred into the program in January.

An earlier version of this story erroneously listed Scott as an assistant offensive line coach at Pitt.
