IAN SCOTT | Former Professional Football Player | NFL | College Football Coach | Team Building Pro

Ian Scott joined the UCF Football staff as a defensive quality control analyst in January 2018.

After a standout career at Gainesville High School where Scott garnered First Team All-State (5A) and All-America honors following his junior (1998) and senior seasons (1999), he enrolled at the University of Florida. On the field at UF, Scott played in 32 games and recorded 23 starts during his three-year career (2000-02). Among those starts, Scott started the 2001 Sugar Bowl and 2002 Orange Bowl. Statistically, he registered 120 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 18.5 tackles-for-loss, 21 quarterback hurries, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and five pass deflections.

For his efforts on the field, Scott was a two-time Second Team All-SEC selection and a two-time member of the Verizon Academic All-District III team (2001-02).

Following his junior season in 2002, Scott decided to forgo his final season at Florida and enter the NFL Draft. His decision led to him being selected in the fourth round by the Chicago Bears with the 116th overall choice in 2003. After four seasons in Chicago (2003-06), Scott signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles but was placed on injured reserve before the start of the season and did not appear in a regular season game. He then spent the 2008 and 2009 seasons with the San Diego Chargers where he played in 16 games and recorded seven starts.

Throughout his seven-year NFL career, Scott played in 65 games (47 starts) and totaled 112 tackles, two fumble recoveries and an interception.

Following his playing days, Scott spent time as a Business Analyst for JPMorgan Chase & Co. and he worked as an Industrial Engineer for Michelin North America. Prior to joining Florida’s staff, he picked up coaching experience as a Defensive Assistant for Daniel High School in Central, South Carolina.
