49ers let go of executive vice president

The 49ers have quietly dismissed one of their primary front office members.

Matt Maiocco of confirms with the team that executive vice president of football administration Lal Heneghan has been let go.

Heneghan has been one of the top-ranking members with the team since being hired in 2006.    He oversaw all aspects of the day-to-day football administration as well as legal affairs.

The team says the move is unrelated to the lockout, but instead is part of “reorganizing” duties.  It’s unknown if the 49ers will bring in anyone to replace Heneghan.

    If it wasn’t for re-orgs, re-stacks, figuring out if you want to work in silos or across silos, or prefer dotted line reporting vs straight line reporting, excecs would have nothing to do but secretaries.

    Already a power upgrade for Baalke?

    If I had an employee named Lal, I would fire him too. Perhaps I would first give him the opportunity to change his name to Eddie.

    Just a matter of shifting deck chairs on the Titanic. This team doesn’t know which end is up.

    Since no one could figure out exactly what it was that Heneghen did, and he had not been seen in the office for over four years, the prudent course seemed to be to discontinue his employment.

    Yeah, because the 49ers have been SOOOO successful since 2006, right?

    Let go of him? Was he hanging from the side of a building at the time?
