The Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they’ve hired Toronto Argonauts HC Scott Milanovich as their new QBs coach.
“Scott Milanovich brings a variety of experience to our coaching staff, and we are eager for him to get started,” Jaguars Executive Vice President of Football Operations Tom Coughlin said in a statement Friday. “Working closely with Offensive Coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, we expect the quarterback position to deliver positive results under Scott’s direction and guidance.”
“We are pleased to welcome Scott and his family to the Jaguars organization,” Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone. “He will be a great asset to our coaching staff, as his professional playing and coaching experience will be vital in the improvement of our quarterbacks.”
Milanovich thanked the Argonauts in a statement:
“I would like to thank the Argonauts’ Ownership, President & CEO Michael Copeland, the staff, all the players and coaches, and most importantly, the wonderful city of Toronto and the loyal fans for the opportunity to serve as your head coach for the past five seasons,” Milanovich said. “This has been an amazing experience for my family and me, and we’re so appreciative of all the wonderful friends we’ve made and memories we’ve created in Toronto.”
Milanovich, 44, was hired as the Alouettes QBs coach back in 2007. He worked his way up to offensive coordinator and assistant head coach before he was promoted to head coach in 2012.
During his five years as head coach, Milanovich led the Argonauts to a record of 43-47 (47.8 percent) to go along with three playoff appearances and one Grey Cup in 2012.
