According to TSN Broadcaster Farhan Lalji, the Canadian Football League’s Scott Milanovich, who is the current head coach of the Edmonton Football Team, is a candidate to become the Indianapolis Colts next quarterbacks coach—as the position is vacant after Marcus Brady was recently promoted to offensive coordinator:

The Athletic’s Stephen Holder ‘believes this report to be true.’

Milanovich was a former NFL quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1996-99) and also played for NFL Europe’s Berlin Thunder (2000), the XFL’s Los Angeles Xtreme (2001), the Arena Football League’s Tampa Bay Storm (2002), and the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders (2003).

He has been Edmonton’s football coach for one year (although this past season was cancelled due to COVID-19), having previously served as the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterbacks coach (2017-19) and the Toronto Argonauts head coach (2012-16)—the latter where he was named the 2012 CFL Coach of the Year.

With the Jaguars as quarterbacks coach, Milanovich coached the likes of Blake Bortles, Chad Henne, Cody Kessler, Gardner Minshew, and Nick Foles.

He has over 18 years of professional coaching experience including other stints with NFL Europe and the CFL in various quarterbacks coach or offensive coordinator roles respectively.

Given his prior connection with Brady and others on the Colts coaching staff, he’ll be a candidate to watch as Indianapolis looks to fill its open quarterbacks coach position during this early offseason.
