49ers VP of player personnel Ethan Waugh expected to leave for Jaguars

Apr 21, 2022 at 9:37 AM--


It sounds like Ethan Waugh's role as the San Francisco 49ers' vice president of player personnel will be short-lived. He was promoted from director of college scouting and football systems this offseason. According to ESPN's Nick Wagoner, Waugh has an offer from Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Trent Baalke to serve as the team's assistant general manager.

"He is expected to take it after the draft barring any snags, per league source," wrote Wagoner.


2022 would have been Waugh's 18th season with the 49ers. He was expected to oversee the college and pro scouting staff and the department's daily operations.

The below rundown is from Waugh's profile within the team's media guide.



Waugh served as a senior player personnel coordinator for three seasons (2015-17) where he worked with all aspects of player personnel. He also spent three seasons (2012-14) as the team's senior personnel assistant. Waugh spent four seasons (2008-11) as the team's midwest regional scout.

Prior to being promoted to an area scout in 2008, Waugh served as the team's personnel assistant where he was involved in a variety of areas, including the evaluation and scouting of college and professional players and working extensively with the 49ers' scouting database.

Waugh joined the 49ers after spending the previous two seasons at Illinois Wesleyan University, where he served as the offensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator.

Prior to his time at Illinois Wesleyan, Waugh served as an assistant at Western Carolina University from 1997-2001. While with the Catamounts, he coached on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball and assisted with special teams.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance has started to attract serious attention from the media, as many analysts are coming on board with the 22-year-old's potential as he enters his second NFL season. During a recent appearance on NFL Total Access, former Green Bay Packers receiver James Jones continued the trend, going as far as comparing Lance to his former quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. "I believe we're looking at a bonafide superstar [in Lance], like Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers," Jones said. "We had a small sample size of Aaron Rodgers, but all you heard out of the locker room and the people around Aaron was, 'Just wait. You



Bleacher Report: 49ers probably regret not extending Deebo Samuel earlier

Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox recently listed one offseason regret for each NFL team (h/t Niners Noise). That regret for the Kansas City Chiefs was letting Charvarius Ward depart. In March, the cornerback signed a three-year, $40.5 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers, forcing the Chiefs to use a first-round pick on Trent McDuffie. What about the regret for the 49ers, though? Is it the complicated situation with Jimmy Garoppolo, the veteran quarterback they would love to trade but can't? Is it not directly shooting

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle made headlines last week, telling Kevin Hart on the LOL Network show, Cold as Balls, that he would love to see the NFL add a second bye week. "Seventeen games is a lot," Kittle said. "It's a lot of games with one bye, whether it's Week 4 or the bye is Week 11. I'm advocating for two byes." Kittle is preparing to enter his sixth NFL season. San Francisco made the tight end a fifth-round draft pick in 2017. While he has come close to winning a championship, he has yet to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Kittle came extremely close during the 2019 season. However, he watched his Niners collapse in the



49ers' Brandon Aiyuk among PFF's Year 3 breakout candidates

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was a hot pick last year as a candidate primed to have a breakout season. Instead, it was third-year wideout Deebo Samuel who emerged as one of the best in the game. Aiyuk was slow out of the gate, hauling in just one pass for six yards in the Niners' first two games. He played just 51 percent of the offensive snaps through Week 2. Aiyuk finished the season strong, playing at least 90 percent of the offensive snaps in each game starting in Week 9. He amassed 43 receptions for 685 yards and four touchdowns during that span. Can Aiyuk have a Samuel-like breakout season in his third year—minus the running back snaps. One thousand, four hundred five of Samuel's 1,770 all-purpose yards came as a receiver. In 2021,
