Ed McGuire
Exec. VP of Football Administration/Player Finance

Bio

In his 26th NFL season and 16th with the Chargers, Ed McGuire has enjoyed a steady ascent since joining the team in 1998. He most recently was named Executive Vice President of Football Administration—Player Finance in January 2013. McGuire serves as the club’s chief negotiator and manages the salary cap, while overseeing compliance of NFL and Collective Bargaining Agreement rules. He has been a member of the NFL Player Insurance Trust since 2002.

McGuire’s previous roles with the Chargers include coordinator of football operations (1998-00), vice president of football operations (2000-06), executive vice president of football operations (2007) and executive vice president of football operations—assistant general manager (2008-12).

In 2004, he negotiated an eight-year contract extension for 2006 NFL MVP and two-time NFL rushing champion, LaDainian Tomlinson. At the time, the deal was the largest contract ever signed by a running back in NFL history. And in 2009, McGuire negotiated Philip Rivers’ six-year, $92 million contract extension, the largest player contract negotiated in team history.

McGuire joined the Chargers after serving as the senior manager of labor operations for the NFL’s Management Council from 1996-98. He was the league’s manager of player personnel from 1991-96 and originally joined the NFL in 1987 as a player personnel analyst. McGuire also worked in the personnel department for the United States Football League from 1984-86.              

During his tenure in the National Football League office, McGuire became a leading expert on the NFL’s salary cap and Collective Bargaining Agreement, which was created in 1993 between the NFL and the NFL Players’ Association.

Born in Riverhead, New York, McGuire graduated with a degree in athletic administration in 1984 from St. John’s University in Jamaica, New York. He played football and baseball at Riverhead High School.

McGuire and his wife, Jane, have two children—son Kevin and daughter Shannon—and reside in Rancho Bernardo.
