Scout Bio

Terry McDonough
Director, Player Personnel

Terry McDonough was promoted to Director, Player Personnel on Jan. 12, 2009. He scouts the top collegiate players throughout the nation, as well as the top free agency prospects each year. Additionally, McDonough does crosschecks, attends all major all-star practices and selective spring player workouts of the top draft-eligible players as well as handling the trades with other teams on draft day. He also has some additional pro personnel responsibilities.  

In McDonough’s first draft in his current role, the 2009 draft class was led by two OTs selected in the first two rounds in Eugene Monroe and Eben Britton, and on the defensive side DT Terrance Knighton and CB Derek Cox were selected in the third round. In the first two rounds in 2010 the team was strengthened up front again in acquiring two DTs, Tyson Alualu and D’Anthony Smith. 

In 2011 the first three picks were on offense, with QB Blaine Gabbert selected 10th overall, G/C Will Rackley added in the third round and WR Cecil Shorts III in the fourth. The 2012 draft featured WR Justin Blackmon as the fifth-overall selection in a trade-up with Tampa Bay. The second and third rounds landed DE Andre Branch and P Bryan Anger.

Of the 26 players drafted by the Jaguars over the past four years, 21 were on the roster entering the 2012 training camp.

A Boston native, McDonough began his NFL scouting career with an internship with the San Francisco 49ers in 1989. Following his graduation from Massachusetts with a sports management degree, he was named player personnel director of the Barcelona Dragons of the World League in 1990. While with the Dragons (1990-92), McDonough handled a variety of personnel assignments, serving as west coast scout for the league and helping each team prepare for the WFL drafts. McDonough toured both NFL and CFL training camps to grade potential WFL players. The 1991 Barcelona team finished with a 9-3 record, losing the league title to London in the World Bowl. The following season, the Dragons captured the European title.

In 1992, McDonough was hired by the Cleveland Browns as the southeast area scout, and he moved to Baltimore with the franchise in 1996. McDonough joined the Jaguars in 2003 from the Baltimore Ravens, for whom he scouted the eastern half of the country for the previous three years as the Ravens' eastern college supervisor under the direction of General Manager Ozzie Newsome. During McDonough’s tenure with the Ravens the team won Super Bowl XXXV following the 2000 season.

At Hingham (Mass.) High School, McDonough was all-conference as a running back in football as well as in baseball, and he also lettered in basketball. He transferred to Bridgton Academy.

McDonough is the son of the late Will McDonough, the long-time sports reporter and columnist for The Boston Globe who also worked at CBS Sports and NBC Sports. He is also the brother of Ryan McDonough, assistant general manager of the Boston Celtics, and Sean McDonough, the play-by-play voice of Monday Night Baseball who was previously on air for CBS Sports and was the television voice of the Boston Red Sox.

McDonough is married to Lynette and has three children, Patrick, Caroline and Brendan.
