Redskins Officially Hire Scot McCloughan As GM



ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Redskins have officially hired Scot McCloughan as their new general manager.

  • McCloughan received a four-year contract from Washington, according to Albert Breer.
  • Breer mentions that McCloughan will report to president Bruce Allen.
  • However, Breer adds McCloughan reportedly has final say over the 53-man roster.

Pro Football Talk points out that with Scot McCloughan getting final say over the Redskins’ roster, Bruce Allen has essentially received demotion and in turn received long-term job security.


Pro Football Talk is reporting that an agreement between the Redskins and Scot McCloughan is expected to be finalized Wednesday morning.

  • Albert Breer reports that McCloughan is expected to receive a four-year deal from Washington.
  • According to Breer, the plan is for McCloughan to travel to Washington D.C. by Friday morning.


Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that an agreement between the Redskins and former 49ers GM Scot McCloughan still has yet to be finalized.

According to Florio, an agreement is being held up due to interest in McCloughan from other teams including the Raiders and Jets.

Negotiations are still ongoing between the Redskins and McCloughan, but there are reportedly “multiple issues” that need to be addressed.

Florio suggests that one sticking point could be whether McCloughan will have control over the roster and the draft.

Previous reports mentioned that Bruce Allen is expected to be promoted to president, but losing control of the roster could be a “de facto demotion” for him, according to Florio.


Albert Breer reports that Scot McCloughan has accepted the job and the two sides are still working out the details of the contract.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that McCloughan will receive a four-year deal from the Redskins.

  • The Raiders reportedly reached out McCloughan one last time Monday night and offered him the opportunity to be “‘president of personnel” under current GM Reggie McKenzie, according to Mike Silver.


Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that the Redskins and Scot McCloughan do not have a deal in place for him to become their next general manager.

  • According to Jones, the team has yet to offer him the job.
  • Mike Silver reports that McCloughan and the Redskins are still in negotiations for him to become team’s GM with Bruce Allen being promoted to president.


Michael Robinson reports that the Washington Redskins have hired Scot McCloughan to be the team’s new general manager.

  • Robinson mentions that a press conference is scheduled for later this week.

Jason La Canfora reported earlier in the day that the Jets, Raiders and Redskins had all reached out to McCloughan regarding a “prominent personnel position.

Previous reports mentioned that McCloughan was looking to have a large say over a team’s football operation, rather than work under a general manager.

McCloughan is a former senior personnel executive for the Seattle Seahawks and was previously the general manager of the San Francisco 49ers.
