SAD NEWS: Sudden Exodus: 49ers Lose Top Coaching Staff to Unforeseen Resignations

The Washington Commanders fired head coach Ron Rivera this morning, but have not yet started GM Martin Mayhew. Josh Harris hired NBA executive Bob Myers and former NFL executive Rick Spielman to lead the search for a new coach and director of football operations.

Four names have already been linked to Washington’s head coaching search (Jim Harbaugh, Raheem Morris, Ben Johnson, Aaron Glenn) and now we have a third GM candidate linked to the franchise.

Washington has already requested an interview with Bears AGM Ian Cunningham and Browns AGM/VPoPP Glenn CookAdam Schefter reports that Washington has also requested an interview with San Francisco 49ers AGM Adam Peters. He began his NFL career as an assistant scout (2003–04), pro scout (2005), area scout (2006–08) for the New England Patriots.

Peters joined the Denver Broncos as a regional scout in 2009 and was promoted to national scout two years later. He was again promoted to Associate Director of College Scouting in 2014 and then again to Director of College Scouting in 2016. Peters later joined the 49ers the following year as its vice president of player personnel. He served in that role for four years, and for the past three was assistant director.

The only thing Peters hasn’t accomplished in his six years in San Francisco is win a title (and that might be coming). The former UCLA player cut his teeth as a college scout in New England, rose to staff in Denver under Josh McDaniels and then John Elway, and grew into a respected executive in San Francisco, going to Super Bowls with all three teams. Peters landed the New York Giants job nearly two years ago and turned down interviews with the Titans and Cardinals last year.

So he doesn’t leave a good situation for any job (but the Californian could be an interesting matchup for the Los Angeles Chargers or even the Patriots).”I think if you’re a scout team this year, frankly, you’d be a fool to look anywhere else,” an NFL agent said as part of The Athletic’s annual agent survey.

“I think he’s the best at what he does.”Agents also voted Peters among the league’s most trusted talent analysts and executive managers. This is a rare mention among non-chief executives. He tied for first place in the “Future GM to Watch” category with Khai Harley (Saints) and Nolan Teasley (Seahawks).”Good, bad or ugly, Adam does it right,” said the agent.

“He treats people with compassion, even when the situation is bad. He is always honest. You know where you stand. I’m surprised he hasn’t been given the CEO position now.Peters is expected to be one of the top prospects in the 2024 recruiting cycle and will finish his third season as John Lynch’s boss in the 49ers front office. Peters previously served four seasons as San Francisco’s vice president of player personnel and eight seasons in the Broncos’ personnel department.

Before that, he spent six years as a scout for the New England Patriots.Peters, a confidant of former Broncos GM John Elway, helped Denver build a 50-win Super Bowl roster. He was also part of two Super Bowl teams in New England under Bill Belichick..
