YNS Live with NFL Thread Pivot Ian & Crystal ScottDec 08, 2022
Ian and Crystal started dating in high school in Gainesville, Florida. After 3 years playing football at the University of Florida, Ian decided to leave school early for the 2003 NFL draft. They were married two weeks before the draft, not knowing where football would take them, but planning to give their all and enjoy wherever life decided to take them. Almost 20 years later they have traversed 7 states, in 18 homes, with 4 kids - Skylar (17), Savannah (16), Josef (14), and Sean (12). After 7 years in the league Ian transitioned out of football and spent 2 years finishing an engineering degree, followed by 5 years in the corporate world as an Industrial Engineer, but then transitioned again into his 3rd career - coaching football. Ian is now in his 6th coaching season, currently with Central Michigan University, living with his family in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.

“I was like - what am I going to do now? At 28 they told me I was too old to play football and I had to figure out what was next. You always think you have an idea of when it’s coming and you hope that you have a chance to prepare, but even know that it’s not for long, you still hope that you’re ready and you know what life is like. It wasn’t until I was done that I realized how much of my identity was tied up with being a professional football player. That was gone and it was completely out of my control which is difficult for me because I am accustomed to being in control.” - Former NFL Player/Current NFL Coach Ian Scott on transition.
