Scot McCloughan will take over as general manager of the Washington football team, according to multiple media reports.
McCloughan will bring two things with him to Ashburn: A build-through-the-draft philosophy and a special set of ‘eyes’ to evaluate talent. In other words, the new general manager will provide the two things Washington’s flailing front office so desperately needs, that according Andrew Brandt, a former Packers’ vice president and current Sports Illustrated and ESPN contributor.
“What he’ll bring is a philosophy that is different than what has gone on there before,” Brandt, who briefly crossed paths with McCloughan in Green Bay, said on 106.7 The Fan on Wednesday. “It is draft and develop. It is bring in young players. Have coaches that aren’t afraid to play them …that don’t need quick fixes in free agency, and have a pipeline of young talent ready to go at all times. That’s the philosophy that he’ll bring.”
McCloughan has reportedly signed a four-year contract to join Washington and has been given control of all player personnel decisions. He’ll take over for Bruce Allen, who is expected to remain with the organization as team president.
