Capt. Blane Morgan
Blane Morgan is in his sixth season overall and first as quarterbacks coach at the Academy. Morgan was wide receivers coach for two years and a junior varsity assistant before that prior to this season.
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 at Air Force. Blane followed Beau as the starting quarterback at both schools.
Morgan and his wife, Mandy, live in Colorado Springs.
