I can confirm Scot McCloughlan will be new Redskins GM. I'm told Bruce Allen will be President of Redskins.

Scott McCloughan's path to the Redskins has the eventual makings of a Hollywood script. I can already see Brad Pitt signing up for this one.

McCloughan has a movie script like story. McCloughan stepped aside from his most recent stint with the Seahawks to deal with some personal issues, which were detailed in a recent profile done by ESPN The Magazine.
McCloughan is known in league circles as one of the most naturally gifted scouts in football, but it was almost derailed over alcohol.
