Edward Scott "Scotty" Glacken (July 28, 1944[1] – December 27, 2006[2]) was an American collegiate and Professional Football quarterback and collegiate head coach. He played his college football at Duke University. In 1963, Glacken threw for a school-record twelve touchdown passes. Glacken finished his Duke career with 3,170 yards and 24 touchdowns, helping the Blue Devils to a 15-13-2 record during his final three years as a player.

Glacken played two seasons with the Denver Broncos, leading them to a 1967 exhibition victory over the Detroit Lions, the first time an American Football League club would defeat a team from the rival National Football League.

Glacken would begin a two-decade long coaching career in 1970, taking the head coaching position at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., helping to return the Hoyas to NCAA intercollegiate competition after a number of years as a club team.

Glacken retired as Georgetown's coach in 1992, having compiled a school-best 98-94-2 record.
