Scot McCloughan auctions his trademark hat and (eventually) suit

AP

Former Washington G.M. Scot McCloughan currently has no further use for a variety of items he wore while working for the team. So he’s selling them.

Via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, McCloughan and his wife, Jessica, decided to auction a pair of hats on eBay, and to give the proceeds to a worthy cause. The hats include a camouflage version for which McCloughan became well known.

The McCloughans also plan to auction Scot’s lucky game-day tan suit.

McCloughan was fired in March after being essentially neutered by the team. The team has yet to replace him, and possibly won’t.

He had two years left on his contract. It’s believed that the team and McCloughan have been negotiating a severance package.

    Good for them for turning something negative into something positive.

    That said, “lucky suit”?…..come on now….

    at some point he needs to tell his wife to stop trying to be in the spotlight.

    Also for sale by McCloughan, but for some reason wasn’t mention in this article, is his flask.

    Mike Shanahan left a custom Redskins tailored suit at the shop after getting axed- no joke look it up.

    There are no lucky suits for Skins brass, and the emperor wears no clothes

    I want his booze flask!

    I’m so glad the Redskins got rid of him. He was on the verge of making them respectable. Now they’re headed back where they have been since Snyder has owned them.

    The “worthy cause” is the Redskins team charity. But putting that in would mean there most likely isn’t any ill will between Scot and the team. Convenient to leave that out.

    Bruce Allen took credit for this idea.

    How dare she try to make some money for a charity with some stuff they would otherwise have thrown out… Seriously, how does anybody read either this article or the original and come away thinking she did anything wrong at all?

    considering they have no charity picked out or track record of being charitable, yeah, how dare they. seriously, how can anyone look at all shes done on social media and not think everything she does is wrong?

    Former Redskins GM.

    The McCloughans will donate the money to the Redskins Charitable Foundation. Jessica McCloughan told The Washington Post that: “When it’s all said and done, Scot and I are still grateful that we were able to come here, so why not give back to the people that brought us here.”

    Good for him. His donations are greater than 95% of the commenters on here bashing him.

    I’m not superstitious but I understand the lucky suit. When you work for perennial losers like Snyder and company you need all the help you can get. Anything is worth a shot.

  16. dirtydrynn27 says: May 8, 2017 12:59 PM

    Perenial losers????….8 7 and 1 is not a losing season and the year before they were 9 and 7!….Sorry tjacks7,try again

    As for the Redskins not having a GM,They still drafted a lot better than most of you think……Haters are gonna hate!!!!!

  17. tjacks7 says: May 8, 2017 1:10 PM

    I’m sorry, I forgot the Redskins won the 8-7-1 trophy last year. Congrats on your great season! Lol

    Good luck in your next endeavor Scott, rooting for you.

    Hail to the Redskins.

  20. whatjusthapped says: May 8, 2017 1:39 PM

    He made the Redskins respectable again, then Synder decided success wasn’t to his liking so they are now back to their losing ways.

  21. jag1959 says: May 8, 2017 1:47 PM

    Not sure how much luck there can be in that suit but if there is any maybe he should save it for job interviews.
