49ers, GM McCloughan part ways
Scot McCloughan is out as the general manager of the San Francisco
49ers in a 'mutual parting,' and director of player personnel Trent
Baalke will lead the team into next month's draft.
Team president Jed York, speaking Monday in a conference call
from the owners meetings in Orlando, said it's in the best interest
of both parties and called it a 'private personnel matter.' He
didn't elaborate on what went wrong for McCloughan, except to say
it had more to do with the GM's personal issues than anything on
the personnel, football side of things.
