Maybe McCloughan didn't want Singletary as coach after the 2009 season but Jed did. This has the makings of Jed/Sing vs McCloughan battle. And then McCloughan signs David Carr, and trades Shaun Hill who's was a Singletary favorite. I also think that maybe McCloughan somehow forced Alex Smith into the starting job last season pissing Singletary off, considering how quickly Hilll was replaced. Add to the fact, that some OC like Linehan (MCCloughan's first choice for new OC) turned down Singletary's offer (this is just my speculation). McCloughan probably saw his GM duties being diminished as time went on and will decide to step down, thus screwing the 49ers over one last time by leaving before the draft.
Eagerly awaiting Michael Silver from yahoo.com because his source is McCloughan.
