Homecoming 1968. On the sidelines watching the game were former Hoya football coaches Al Exendine (55 wins), Jack Hagerty (61 wins), and George Murtagh (long-time Hagerty assistant). Coaching for the Hoyas was new head coach (but long-time Hagerty assistant) Mush Dubofsky. Amid this pantheon of winningest Georgetown coaching greats was a young 24-year old assistant, helping his old high school coach on the sidelines. That young assistant, former local star quarterback at St. John's College High, former all-conference player at Duke, and former professional with the Denver Broncos was Scotty Glacken.

Fast forward 25 football seasons. Head coach of the Hoyas for the previous 23 years, Scotty Glacken finished his final season as the winningest (98 wins) and longest tenured coach in Georgetown football history.



His coaching career from 1970 to 1992 spans the entire length of Georgetown's football participation in NCAA small college/Division III. During this period, the Hoyas finished 10th (1974) and 7th (1978) in balloting for the Lambert Bowl, awarded annually to the best small college team in the East. The 1978 team finished 7-1, the best showing by a Georgetown team since 1939, and came within a single point of finishing the season undefeated. His 1991 team was an offensive juggernaut, rolling up a school record 3,609 yards in total offense as well as a school record 2,868 yards in passing offense.

Key to this success was a dedicated and knowledgeable cadre of assistant coaches that remained equally loyal to the Hoya football program: Droze, Calabrese, Alexander, Kecman, Jenkins, Gulyas. Five of his players have already been inducted into the Hall of Fame: Dwyer, Bogdanski, Kuhns, Morris, and Burke. A sixth name will be added this year along with his own: Corcoran.

Since the advent of intercollegiate football on campus 115 years ago, Georgetown has fielded 96 teams. Scotty Glacken has been head coach for nearly one-quarter of those teams. His legacy however goes deeper than this. In 1951, Georgetown discontinued the sport of football. When varsity intercollegiate football returned to the Hilltop in 1970, it faced an uncertain future. On top of the usual funding issues, other new challenges awaited the program, including finding and developing enough players to field a competitive team, and scheduling in a constantly shifting NCAA-mandated environment. At a time in its history when the University did not have the means for additional support, Scotty and his assistants made the difference between survival and discontinuation. Without the selfless contributions of Scotty Glacken and his coaching staffs, Georgetown football would not have survived and prospered.

Scotty is a principal in Emerging Markets Partnership, an international private equity firm with headquarters in Washington, DC and offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, London, Bahrain, Johannesburg, and Abidjan. He and his wife live in Bethesda, MD and are the proud parents of three grown daughters Stacey, Kirsten and Bridget.
