Bob “Monk” Montgomery Has Died

Longtime color commentator for WFIN’s Findlay Trojans broadcasts Bob Montgomery has passed away.

Bob “Monk” Montgomery is in the University of Findlay Athletics Hall of Fame and was a teacher at Findlay High School and coached at the high school and college level.

Bob was the grandfather of former Trojan football player and current Ohio State Buckeye Luke Montgomery and current Trojans quarterback Ryan Montgomery.

Bob was the color analyst for WFIN’s Trojans football and basketball games for decades.

Former WFIN Sports Director Chris Miller called many, many games with Bob and says they became great friends over 30 years.
