Director of Canadian Scouting
CFL: 12th season
Stamps: 12th season
Mahoney is in his 12th season with the Stampeders personnel department and his third as the Director of Canadian Scouting. He previously served as Canadian scout and assistant director of football operations.
Hailing from nearby Cochrane, Mahoney joined the club during the 2005 season as a member of the practice roster.
His scouting career began in 2007 as an intern in the personnel department. Much of Mahoney’s work is now focused on identifying and evaluating non-import U Sports and NCAA players in preparation for the Canadian draft. In addition, he takes an active role in scouting and negotiating contracts for first-year international players.
Mahoney has enhanced the club’s draft preparations by advancing the technology of the Stamps’ centralized scouting information system. Other duties include scouting NFL training camps and pre-season games while also organizing the Stampeders’ free-agent camps.
He was a four-year starter at Simon Fraser University and a CIS All-Canadian at wide receiver. In 2003, he set a Canada West playoff record when he caught 11 passes for 294 yards and five touchdowns against Regina. He is married to Kim.
