Because it's all rumor without confirmation from either the team or McCloughan. The only confirmed reason was for non-football reasons
Some believed that McCloughan had requested a leave of absence to deal with his pending divorce and Jed York declined the request, which resulted in the two sides coming together to work out his resignation.
Another report had McCloughan spending too much time away from the team on personal business and not enough scouting prior to the draft, which forced Jed York to give McCloughan an ultimatum.
I guess we'll never know ...
