Offensive Coordinator, QBs Coach & Assistant Head Coach
2011 - Now in his fifth season with the Alouettes, Scott Milanovich is in his fourth year as the Alouettes’ offensive coordinator after holding the quarterbacks coach position in 2007. In 2010, Milanovich was one of the driving forces behind an Alouettes offence that scored an East Division-high 521 points and led the league in passing first downs, most net passing yards, average passing yards per game and most completed passes.
He managed the CFL’s most potent offence in 2009 as the Alouettes’ registered at least 600 points scored for a second straight year while his quarterback, Anthony Calvillo, won his second-consecutive league Most Outstanding Player award.
The Grey Cup Champion Alouettes led the league in several offensive categories, while running back Avon Cobourne was tops with 15 touchdowns and registered 1,214 yards on the ground. The Als were also the only team with three 1,000-yard receivers. The 2008 season was by far the most productive for Milanovich, who oversaw Calvillo as he set several league and team records, in addition to earning the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player Award. The Als’ offensive line was the most dominant in team history, allowing just 22 sacks.
He joined the Alouettes following four years in the NFL Europe coaching ranks including two as an offensive coordinator. He took up that position with the Cologne Centurions in 2006 following a successful 2005 season as offensive coordinator of the Rhein Fire. Under his direction in 2006, the Centurions had the second-best offence in the red zone in NFLE. In 2003 and 2004, he was the Fire’s quarterbacks coach.
Before becoming a coach, he played several years in the NFL, NFLE, AFL, XFL and CFL. He played one game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1996, staying on with the team as a backup through 1999. He signed with the Cleveland Browns before moving on to the NFLE Berlin Thunder. He played one season with the AFL Tampa Bay Storm as well as with the Calgary Stampeders. Following six games as a player, he closed out the 2003 campaign as the Stamps’ quarterbacks coach.
By the time he was done at the University of Maryland, he held several school records and was recognized as the top passer in Terrapin history. He led in several major categories including most passing yards with 7,301, most attempts with 982, and most completions with 650.
