ESPN The Magazine’s Seth Wickersham put together a really good read on former 49ers GM, and Seahawks senior personnel executive, Scot McCloughan, who went from the pinnacle of the profession to living in a remote farmhouse in Washington.
Not long ago, McCloughan was once regarded as one of the best talent evaluators in the league, but behind closed doors he battled alcohol issues.
McCloughan has since cleaned his life up and learned to prioritize his work and family life, and now scouts for a handful of teams in his spare time.
