A professional sprint racer before coming to Carlton, McConnon had also been a good player at North Hobart and was a member of their 1974 premiership team. McConnon represented Tasmania in the 1975 Knockout Carnival.
He made a Preliminary Final in his first season with Carlton but McConnon, a wingman, lost his place in the side the following season and returned to Tasmania. Fitzroy lured him back to league football in 1980 and he played a further two seasons. In 1992, McConnon was appointed senior coach of Clarence.
