Stamps: 17th season
Mahoney is in his 17th season with the Stampeders personnel department, his fifth as the director of player personnel and his first with the additional title of assistant general manager. He previously served as director of Canadian scouting, scout and assistant director of football operations.
In his current role, Mahoney is involved in all player-personnel matters including the negotiation of player contracts and free-agent evaluation. He oversees the scouting department and the evaluation of national players from U Sports and international players from the NFL and all other professional leagues as well as the NCAA.
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 was focused on identifying and evaluating non-import U Sports and NCAA players in preparation for the Canadian draft. Mahoney has enhanced the club’s draft preparations by advancing the technology of the Stamps’ centralized scouting information system.
During his time with the team, the Stamps have made six trips to the Grey Cup and won three championships.
Mahoney was a four-year starter at Simon Fraser University and an 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 has a degree in criminology from SFU.
Mahoney and his wife Kim have a son named Jameson and a daughter named Sutton.
