JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)

The Jacksonville Jaguars have parted ways with three front office personnel, including director of player personnel Terry McDonough.

THE ROAD TO SB XLVIII

From the opening kickoff to the Super Bowl, the best NFL action is on FOX. See the full NFL on FOX schedule.

The others dismissed by new general manager Dave Caldwell were Louis Clark, the team's director of pro personnel, and regional scout Chris Prescott.

The moves came as no surprise given that most new GMs bring in their own personnel staff after the draft.

McDonough served as former GM Gene Smith's right-hand man the past four years. He raised eyebrows last year when he challenged reporters to find a better pro down the road than Jacksonville's third-round draft pick, punter Bryan Anger. The selection was widely mocked. Seattle took quarterback Russell Wilson five picks later.

Clark was promoted in December 2011. Prescott was credited with scouting 2011 first-round pick Blaine Gabbert, who hasn't proven to be a franchise quarterback.

The Jaguars also waived first-year defensive end Jerome Long and first-year receiver Jerrell Jackson.
