Seahawk personnel executive McCloughan leaving team to tend to family matter UPDATED

Seattle senior personnel executive Scot McCloughan is leaving the team for personal reasons, a league source has confirmed.

Here’s a story from when McCloughan was hired with background on his duties with the team, which included assisting GM John Schneider in what was described as being “all aspects of building the roster.”

The news first broke tonight in a series of Tweets from Jason La Confora of CBSSports.com, who also put the news into national  perspective:

Here’s a story from January detailing how McCloughan turned down an opportunity to interview to become GM of the Dolphins.

McCloughan was previously the GM of the 49ers and also worked with Seattle as director of college scouting from 2000-2005.

This story details his success with the 49ers and another from January that detailed his impact on both the 49ers and Seahawks.

As La Confora’s Tweets noted, he is regarded as one of the better personnel men in the NFL, so his loss will be felt.
