Blane Morgan is in his 11th season overall and sixth as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the Academy.
Morgan helped develop 2008 graduate Shaun Carney into one of the top quarterbacks in school history. Carney finished his brilliant four-year run as the Air Force career leader in passing touchdowns, yards and total offense.
Morgan also brought along four-year starter Tim Jefferson, who exploded on the scene in 2008 to earn MWC freshman of the year honors, the first for a player in school history. Jefferson moved into the starting position and won his first five starts, finished 5-3 overall as a starter and became the first freshman starting quarterback ever in a bowl game in school history. Jefferson continued his fine play and was the first quarterback in school history to lead his team to four bowl games. He is also the winningest quarterback in school history with 28 wins. In addition, Air Force's offense has ranked as one of the top units in the conference the last five seasons. Air Force finished third in the conference in scoring (34.9) and second in total offense (454.8) last year. The Falcons finished second in the conference in scoring and total offense with averages of 29.9 points and 419.4 yards per game in 2007. The team was fourth in scoring at 26.7 points per game and averaged 348.8 yards per game with a first-year starter and a freshman at starting quarterback in 2008.
Prior to his current position, Morgan was wide receivers coach for two years and a junior varsity assistant before that.
Morgan is a 1999 graduate of the Academy, where he became the winningest starting quarterback in school history. Morgan led the Falcons to a 12-1 season in 1998 as a senior, while earning Western Athletic Conference offensive player of the year honors. Morgan also led the Falcons to a 10-3 mark as a junior and finished his career with a 20-3 overall record as a starter. He is only the second quarterback in school history to win his first seven starts.
Morgan's accomplishments as a player at the Academy put him in rare company. He was undefeated as a starter against Air Force's sister academies, going 3-0. He remains the only starting QB in school history to lead the Falcons to an outright conference title. He also posted a 1-1 mark in bowl games, helping the Falcons to the 1998 Oahu Bowl win over Washington.
Morgan came to the Academy from Laughlin AFB, Texas, where he was stationed from July 2000 to February 2003. Prior to that, Morgan was a graduate assistant with the football team during the 1999 season.
Originally from Dallas, Texas, Morgan was a three-year football letterwinner at Trinity Christian Academy in Addison, Texas, where he played for his father, Barry. He was a two-time all-state selection at safety and was team captain his senior year.
Football has been a family affair for the Morgans, as Blane's older brother, Beau, also played football at Trinity Christian Academy and Air Force. Blane followed Beau as the starting quarterback at both schools.
Morgan and his wife, Mandy, have a son, Brodie.
