JAGUARS HIRE DEJUAN POLK AS ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF PRO PERSONNEL

 

The Jacksonville Jaguars today announced the hiring of DeJuan Polk as the team’s Assistant Director of Pro Personnel.

 

Polk joins the Jaguars staff after 10 seasons with the Atlanta Falcons (2006-15), most recently as the Pro Personnel Coordinator in 2015. Prior to his promotion to Pro Personnel Coordinator, Polk spent three seasons (2012-14) as the Director of Pro Scouting, where he was responsible for scouting all professional leagues, including 15 NFL teams, as well as advance scouting.

 

“I had the pleasure of working with DeJuan in Atlanta from 2008-2012 and know firsthand what he can bring to an organization,” said Jaguars General Manager Dave Caldwell. “As a former player and coach, he has a unique eye for talent and will be a valuable asset for our personnel department. I’m excited for Dejuan and his wife, Katrina, and we expect him to be involved right away as we enter free agency.”

 

During the 2008 season, Polk served as a college scout for the Falcons, covering the Midwest Region and conferences such as the Big Ten and the MAC. Polk began his tenure with the Falcons in 2006 as a pro personnel assistant, coordinating free agent workouts, maintaining the “short-list” and scouting future opponents.

 

In 2005, Polk served as the defensive tackles coach at South Carolina State following a four-year career (1999-2003) as a defensive tackle at Clemson University. Polk and his wife, Katrina, will reside in Jacksonville.
