The 49ers have become one of the very best organizations in football. So it’s time for the team to start handing out new titles.
The 49ers have announced the following promotions: Joel Patton, previously the Director of College Scouting, will serve as Director of Player Personnel; Matt Malaspina, a national scout for three years, becomes the Director of College Scouting; and Mike Williams, a pro personnel scout, will be the Director of Pro Personnel.
The 49ers also promoted Justin Chabot to national scout, Steve Rubio to regional scout, and Josh Williams to pro personnel scout.
Tom Gamble, the prior Director of Player Personnel, left for a similar job with the Eagles after interviewing for some of the G.M. vacancies in January. The 49ers otherwise have had a high level of continuity in the coaching staff and front office during their recent return to the top of the league.
