Jaguars keep former Argos head coach Scott Milanovich as quarterbacks coach

The Jacksonville Jaguars have named their coaching staff for 2019 and former Toronto Argonauts Grey Cup-winning head coach Scott Milanovich remains on the staff as quarterbacks coach.

Milanovich took over offensive coordinator duties on an interim basis during the 2018 NFL season when Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone relieved Nathaniel Hackett of play-calling duties in November.

The playcalling position was opened up to all candidates in the off-season and Marrone selected John DeFilippo to be the permanent play-caller.

Milanovich coached 10 seasons in the CFL, including a five-year stint with the Montreal Alouettes from 2007 to 2011. He joined the Argos as head coach the following season and promptly led the team to a championship, winning the 100th Grey Cup in Toronto. Milanovich was named coach of the year in 2012 and has a 43-47 record as a CFL head coach.

Milanovich joined the Jaguars as quarterbacks coach prior to the 2017 season. He will be tasked with helping DeFilippo improve Jacksonville’s offence that scored 15.3 points per game – second lowest among all NFL teams.

Milanovich spent four years as a quarterback with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1996-1999) playing in one game connecting on two of three passes for nine yards.
