General manager Scot McCloughan has begun to speak — albeit through text messages — about his situation with the 49ers.
According to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, the 49ers’ front office has begun the process of restructuring, handing most of McCloughan’s responsibilities to director of player personnel Trent Baalke, at least on an interim basis.
In a text message to SIRIUS NFL Radio’s Adam Schein, McCloughan wrote, “Family needs to come first and I lost sight of that with my position at the 49ers. I will be back in league at some point and be very successful.”
“It was a great run,” McCloughan wrote in a text to San Jose Mercury News columnist Tim Kawakami. “Players I brought in will win division for next couple of years.”
And in a text to the Sacramento Bee‘s Matthew Barrows, McCloughan wrote, “I know what I did for the organization and I’m really good with it.”
