McGuire has enjoyed a steady ascent since joining the Chargers in 1998 as coordinator of football operations. In 2007, he was promoted to executive vice president of football operations, and in 2008 he became assistant general manager.
McGuire is in charge of all football operations for the Chargers. He oversees player contract negotiations as well as the day-to-day business and administrative operations of the scouting department, coaching department, equipment and video departments, training staff, and strength and conditioning staff.
One of McGuire's key roles involves serving as the chief negotiator for all player contracts. The Chargers have made a concerted effort to re-sign their own players and McGuire has played an integral role in the process. In 2004, McGuire 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.
