Scot's job will be very different though than compared to SF (seeing how Seattle's FO is setup right now), he will be a watered-down draft scout/draft-board planner (with almost zero trigger-pulling authority on draft day).
A step or two demotion, sounds like.
Anyway, thanks McC for fighting for us in drafting Patrick Willis (against Nolan and Singletary's opinions) and for drafting Crabtree (although Oher would've been a good selection, too) and making sure he signed an extra year for holding out. But he made many terrible mistakes, too (see: Balmer, Wallace, etc.). Add that to his list of personal issues (drinking and marital problems) and making it so bad that he "mutually parted ways" before the draft...so, I say good riddance!
