49ers choose McCloughan as personnel chief
McCloughan will be introduced in his new position Wednesday morning during a news conference at the San Francisco Airport Marriott. At that time, Nolan and owner John York will outline the specifics of McCloughan's role with the team. McCloughan will be replacing deposed general manager Terry Donahue in the organization, but he will not have the typical duties - or power - of a general manager. McCloughan will, however, be in charge of the personnel department. McCloughan has been the Seattle Seahawks' director of college scouting since 2000. He worked in the Green Bay Packers' scouting department for five years before joining the Seahawks. McCloughan comes from a football family. His father, Kent, played six seasons for the Oakland Raiders and has been a member of Oakland's scouting staff the past 29 years. His older brother, Dave, played safety for the Seahawks from 1993-94.
