The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired Scott Milanovich as their new quarterbacks coach. Milanovich was previously the head coach of the Toronto Argonauts with the CFL.

Milanovich spent the last five seasons as the head coach for the Argonauts and totaled a 43-47 overall record (.478), including Coach of the Year honors and a Grey Cup victory in 2012, his first season with the team.

From 2007-2011, Milanovich served in multiple capacities for the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes. After being promoted to assistant head coach/offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach in 2009, Milanovich spent three seasons in that capacity. In 2008, he was promoted to offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach after spending the 2007 season overseeing the development of the Alouettes’ quarterbacks.

Milanovich also coached in NFL Europe with the Rhein Fire as the quarterbacks coach (2004) and offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach (2005), and then with the Cologne Centurions as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2006. Milanovich began his coaching career in 2003 when he served as the quarterbacks coach for the Rhein Fire of NFL Europe. Later that year, he coached the quarterbacks for the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders.

After going undrafted in the 1996 NFL Draft, Milanovich signed as a rookie free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and spent four seasons (1996-99) with the organization. In 2000, after a brief stint with the Cleveland Browns, Milanovich signed with the Berlin Thunder of NFL Europe, before returning to the U.S. to play for the XFL’s Los Angeles Xtreme in 2001. In 2002, Milanovich played for the Arena Football League’s Tampa Bay Storm before finishing his playing career with the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders in 2003.
