Talking about the latest developments in 49er land, specifically the sudden departure of Scot McCloughan from the 49ers Front Office. Speculation and rumor abound, and we talk about it all. Also a bit of feedback from Episode 36.
UPDATE: Unbelievable. Just over an hour after I post this and already McCloughan has been quoted by Adam Schein saying, “family needs to come first and I lost sight of that with my position at the 49ers.” This is the first hard evidence we’ve received that indeed, there is not a power struggle at 4949. Meanwhile, Yahoo Sports continues to insist that “sources” suggest VP of Football Operations Paraag Marathe has been “pushing for this” to happen. We at the 49ers Fancast (read: me) will not indulge this speculation unless evidence surfaces that this is true.
