He had an alcohol problem and showed up to the nfl meetings drunk embarrasing the team according to 1050 host Damon Bruce
Interestingly, Scot is quoted as saying this in March, 2010: "It was a great run; Players I brought in will win division for next couple of years." to Tim Kawakami, here.

McCloughan ran the team's drafts from 2005 to 2009 (fired March 18, 2010, before the 2010 draft, perhaps he gets some credit/blame for 2010 picks?, but only 2005 - 2009 are listed below.)

2009
1 Michael Crabtree WR
7 Ricky Jean-Francois DT

2008 (pretty f'in pathetic draft)
7 Larry Grant OLB

2007 (damn good draft)
1 Patrick Willis ILB
1 Joe Staley OT
3 Ray McDonald DT
4 Dashon Goldson FS
5 Tarell Brown CB

2006
1 Vernon Davis TE
5 Parys Haralson DE
6 Delanie Walker WR

2005
1 Alex Smith QB
3 Frank Gore RB

I've always said Nolan made a better GM than coach.

Nolan never gets enough credit for building this team the man flew around with Justin smith in a helicopter for peet's sake.He just had too much on his hands look at every defense he coached since he left.
Because he sucked.
When Nolan had to relinquish his personnel control McCloughan drafted guys like Balmer, Rachal, Wallace, Nate Davis, and Glen Coffee. Then he signed Brandon Jones.
he was licking my a*****e.
McCloughan is the single person responsible for us having Willis. He literally stood up to stop everybody trying to figure out who we were taking on draft day to say we were talking Willis with our first pick, and that was that.

Naw, it was Nolan. I cant find any articles about it but it was well documented back then. McCloughan and Sing didnt want Willis, I believe they wanted Carriker or Bowe.
Nolan fell in love with Willis at the Senior Bowl.

No, it was McCloughan that did it. It was Nolan and Sing shuffling around trying to figure out who they wanted and Scot made it clear we were taking Willis. I remember it clearly.

Even with the many of the same players Harbaugh has that Singletary had last season does not mean he deserves credit. It was not Singletary that drafted Mike Iupati, Anthony Davis, NaVarro Bowman and Aldon Smith, but Baalke did. In fact the few times Singletary had offered his advice on draft picks were not very good. In 2007 when Singletary was the assistant head coach/linebackers coach he admitted he was disappointed in watching film of Patrick Willis but then GM Scot McCloughan insisted on drafting him.

He's a solid talent scout. Not GM or VP of player personnel material though.
Even if Gire??
Wasn't he having an affair with an employee or some s**t, plus being drunk on occasions?

I dont buy it was because Parag Marathe wanted more power, then why promote Baalke to GM?
