Scot McCloughan

According to this report from ESPN’s Mike Sando, Scot McCloughan is headed back to the Seattle Seahawks and will serve in a senior personnel position not yet identified.

“It’s huge for us because Scot is one of the most respected personnel people in the league,” Schneider told ESPN. “He played a critical role in helping the Seahawks become a Super Bowl team (in 2005) and did a great job in rebuilding the 49ers over the last few years.”

McCloughan had served as the general manager for the San Francisco 49ers before abruptly leaving the team five weeks before April’s draft for undisclosed reasons. McCloughan was hired by San Francisco in 2005 as the team’s vice president of player personnel, and was later promoted to general manager in 2007.

McCloughan, 39, worked with Schneider in Seattle in 2000. The two broke into the league together in the 1990s in Green Bay. McCloughan served as director of college scouting for Seattle before leaving to join the 49ers in 2005.

  1. On the surface, this seems like a good/great move.

  2. Dukeshire says:

    Agreed. Nice photo, Eric. Lol.

  3. snydro22 says:

    This would be a great photo for captions..

    “After watching Alex Smith during 49ers minicamp, Scot McCloughan simulates blowing his own brains out.”

  4. Dukeshire says:

    …should I pull my pants down at half time?

  5. snydro22 says:

    Somehow I missed this when it came out –

    “They also have depth and versatility in Will Herring, who is capable of playing all three spots; promising second-year player Anthony Heygood and rookie Dexter Davis, who was drafted as an end but has been moved to linebacker.” –

    I had no idea they moved Davis to linebacker. I figured he was still trying to earn snaps at the Leo.

  6. Dukeshire says:

    Moved to Sam.

  7. chuck_easton says:


    It happened at the last mini-camp. There was a blurb regarding Davis staying after to work with the LB’s. There was too much of a logjam at Leo with Clemons, Reed, Foley so Davis got moved to LB.

  8. Back to the op, this looks to be a great move.
