Jarrod Molloy (born 12 May 1973)is a former Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League.[1]

A key position player, Molloy was trialled in both attack and defence as his career progressed, with most success enjoyed near the goalmouth.[1]

Although he had some success with both Fitzroy and Brisbane, Molloy hit his straps upon reaching Collingwood. He immediately assumed the role of a club leader, and surprised many in finishing runner up to Paul Licuria in the 2001 Copeland Trophy.[1]

At the end of 2003, Molloy announced his retirement from the game at the age of 28, citing the desire to be able to walk properly on his troublesome ankles. He currently provides special comments for ABC football radio.

He is the son of former Fitzroy defender and VFA coach Shane Molloy and his niece, Chloe Molloy plays for Collingwood women's.
