Scott Fountain’s efforts as tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator at Iowa State have been rewarded.  Fountain coached Iowa State tight end Ben Barkema, who ended his career with 52 receptions for 566 yards and four TDs last season. Derrick Catlett developed rapidly as Barkema’s heir apparent, making 21 catches for 112 yards and two touchdowns as a sophomore. Iowa State’s first two recruiting classes have established a foundation for the future.

In a career spanning nearly two decades, Fountain has coached successfully at nearly every level of football. After significant success in the Alabama high school ranks, Fountain began his collegiate coaching career under Bobby Bowden at Florida State.  The Seminoles made postseason appearances in the Sugar Bowl (1995, 1997), the Orange Bowl (1996) and won three ACC titles.

Fountain went on to Central Florida in 1997, where he hooked up with ISU head coach Gene Chizik and offensive coordinator Robert McFarland. With Fountain as offensive tackles and tight ends coach on the Knight’s staff, UCF’s offense ranked among the nation’s top 30 in six of his seven years.  Among Fountain’s pupils was tight end Mike Gaines, a seventh-round draft pick of the Carolina Panthers. Fountain also coordinated nationally-ranked recruiting efforts.

Fountain moved to Middle Tennessee State for two seasons, where he coached a trio of all-conference linemen.  Fountain coached the offensive linemen at Georgia Southern in 2006. His line allowed a national-low six sacks in 2006. The Eagles ranked 22nd nationally in rushing, averaging 184 yards per game led by all-conference lineman Lance Wayne.

Fountain earned his bachelor’s degree at Samford in 1988 and his master’s degree from Florida State in 1998.

Fountain was a four-year letterman on the offensive line at Samford, where he started every game of his college career under head coach Terry Bowden.
