Report: 49ers cutting ties with McCloughan

When the players reported today for the offseason program, they did not receive much of an explanation of the status of general manager Scot McCloughan. “All they were told was that things were moved out of McCloughan’s office,” one source said. “Everything was vague.”

 

Meanwhile, FanHouse reports the 49ers are “cutting ties” with McCloughan over “a personal matter” not related to team issues.

 

The 49ers did not comment on The Press Democrat’s initial report last night that McCloughan was considering stepping aside. The team has still issued no statement.
