Parr returned to Navarro College in January, 2019, after serving as offensive coordinator at NCAA Division I-FCS Eastern Illinois University. Parr spent the three previous seasons in that same capacity at Navarro, where his offensive units ranked among the NJCAA’s Top 10 in yardage and scoring (2015-17).

 

Last season at EIU, Parr’s offense ranked 22nd in FCS total (445.7 yards per game) and ninth in passing (309.3 yards per game) with quarterback Jonathan Brantley, receiver Alexander Hollins, a Walter Payton Award candidate, and four All-Ohio Valley Conference selections. The Panthers had five games of 500-yard-plus total offense, and scored 40+ points six times. Parr’s ‘Air Raid’ influence resulted in the fifth-best passing yardage season in EIU history.

 

Dizzying offensive numbers aren’t new to Parr, a Plainview native, whose family has deep Texas Panhandle high school football coaching roots. His father, Steve, was a head coach for a combined 31 years at Slaton, Plainview and Amarillo Palo Duro High Schools. His brother, Seth, has been a head coach 12 years – first, at Amarillo Caprock, and the last six at Lubbock Coronado, where he’s 34-6 during the last three seasons.

 

Scott Parr, as Texas Tech’s offensive quality control coach, helped coach Tommy Tuberville’s Red Raiders gain NCAA Top 15 ranks in total offense three seasons with bowl appearances in 2010 and 2012. Before that, he served four years as offensive coordinator at West Texas A&M (2006-09) when the Buffaloes broke 64 school and Lone Star Conference records and ranked Top 15 in Division II total offense three years.

Scott and his wife, Kyla, have three children: Berkeley, 9, a fourth grader, and six-year-old twin boys, Nash and Knox.
