The Chargers have added Jim Jauch (pronounced “yalk”) to scout colleges in the Southeast region of the United States. He replaces Darrell Moody, who left the Chargers recently to accept a scouting position with the Buffalo Bills.
Jauch, 44, is in his second stint with the Chargers, serving as a regional scout in the Midwest from 1992-03. He was most recently the Associate Director of College and Pro Scouting for the Cleveland Browns. Jauch joined the Browns in 2004 and served four seasons as a college scout before being elevated to Associate Director of Pro Personnel in 2008 and his most recent role a year later.
A native of Iowa City, Jauch was a defensive back at the University of North Carolina, parlaying his collegiate career into a four-year stint in the Canadian Football League that included stops in Calgary (1989), Edmonton (1990) and Hamilton (1991-92).
Jauch’s father, Ray, is a former CFL head coach, spending 14 seasons with Edmonton and Winnipeg. He also coached the Washington Federals of the USFL.
Jauch and his wife Shaunea have a daughter, Sienna, and currently reside in Cleveland.
