SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP)—The San Francisco 49ers have a new man in charge of personnel decisions merely a month before draft day.

Scot McCloughan is out as the Niners’ general manager 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 NFL owners meetings in Orlando, said it’s in the best interest of both parties and called the move 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 football side of things.

I can hear the meeting now.

"You signed who? David Carr? To how much? You're fired!"

Wonder what brought this? As it does sound really personal why he left!
