WASHINGTON, D.C. (WWBT/AP) - The Washington Redskins have fired General Manager Scot McCloughan.
"The Washington Redskins have released Scot McCloughan from the organization effective immediately. We wish him success in his future endeavors. The team will have no further comment on his departure. The organization remains confident in our personnel department as we execute our free agency plans as well as prepare for the upcoming NFL Draft," Redskins President Bruce Allen told NBC Washington.
McCloughan, 46, served as GM for the past two years. After Allen announced the day McCloughan was hired that the new GM would have full control over personnel decisions, there were splits in the front office on a number of issues. He did not attend the scouting combine, with a spokesman saying it was for family matters.
In the statement, Allen said the organization remains confident in its personnel department to execute its free agency plans and prepare for the draft.
Allen added that the team will have no further comment on McCloughan's departure.
