Scot McCloughan hired by the Seahawks

Mike Sando of ESPN is reporting that the Seahawks have hired Scot McCloughan as a senior personnel guy. According to him the exact title is as yet unknown, but the Seahawks will be having a press conference later on this week. 

"It's huge for us because Scot is one of the most respected personnel people in the league," Seahawks general manager John Schneider said Monday. "He played a critical role in helping the Seahawks become a Super Bowl team [in 2005] and did a great job in rebuilding the 49ers over the last few years."

The critical role that Schneider refers to is as director of college scouting, the position he held in 2005 when the 49ers hired him. The Seahawks have also hired Jeff Ulbrich as an assistant. Of course we hired Seahawks line coach Mike Solari away from them, so there's a long tradition of stealing each other's coaches. 

According to Sando both Schneider and McCloughan worked for Ron Wolf in Green Bay in early 1990s and again in Seattle in the early 2000s, so it's a natural fit for them, although there was some speculation that he would go to Green Bay. 

I think that there's got to be at least a little bit of revenge factor here, even though both he and the Niners are firm that he wasn't fired, but that it was a personal decision, it still has to sting a bit that he left the organization right before the draft.
