McCloughan was born in Alameda, California on March 1, 1971, and grew up in Loveland, Colorado. McCloughan is the son of Kent McCloughan, who was a cornerback for the Oakland Raiders in the late 1960s, and is the brother of Dave McCloughan, who also played defensive back in the NFL. Growing up, McCloughan took an interest in scouting football players, where he and his father Kent, who was also a longtime scout for the Raiders after his playing career, would watch college player tape off a film projector in their basement.
Prior to his career in American football, McCloughan played college baseball at Wichita State and participated in a couple of College World Series with the team. He later was drafted by the New York Mets in the 10th round of the 1989 MLB Draft, and the Toronto Blue Jays in the 10th round of the 1992 MLB Draft, although he never played in the major league for either team. However, McCloughan did play in the minor leagues, playing outfielder for the St. Catharines Blue Jays, Hagerstown Suns, and Dunedin Blue Jays from 1992 to 1994.
Still an outfielder for the Dunedin Blue Jays in 1994, McCloughan received a call from then Green Bay Packers general manager Ron Wolf, who knew McCloughan's father from his playing days with the Oakland Raiders, and offered him a scouting job on the team. McCloughan accepted, and was a regional scout for the Packers from 1994 to 1999, where he took credit for the team drafting offensive guard Adam Timmerman, who later become a two-time Pro Bowler. He then went on to becoming the college scouting director for the Seattle Seahawks from 2000 to 2004, before joining the San Francisco 49ers in 2005 as the vice president of player personnel. In February 2008, McCloughan was promoted to general manager of the team. In March 2010, McCloughan and the 49ers agreed to a mutual termination of his contract, which was later revealed to be due to personal issues with alcoholism and an ongoing divorce.
Shortly after leaving the 49ers, McCloughan was hired by Seattle Seahawks general manager and close friend, John Schneider, to be a senior personnel executive on the team. McCloughan accepted, and later assisted with the team's drafting of notable players in later rounds of the draft such as Russell Wilson, Kam Chancellor, and Richard Sherman. McCloughan remained in this position until April 2014, when he again resigned due to personal issues. After he left the Seahawks, McCloughan started up his own college scouting agency in Ferndale, Washington, where he evaluated incoming draftees for a handful of NFL teams.
In January 2015, McCloughan was hired as general manager of the Washington Redskins. Despite helping build to the team to two straight winning seasons since his hiring, McCloughan was fired by the team in March 2017, again allegedly due to his issues with alcoholism. Following his departure from the team, McCloughan returned to running his scouting agency. In February 2018, he joined the Cleveland Browns as a consultant for the 2018 NFL Draft.
The 1991 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament was played at the end of the 1991 NCAA Division I baseball season to determine the national champion of college baseball. The tournament concluded with eight teams competing in the College World Series, a double-elimination tournament in its forty fifth year. Eight regional competitions were held to determine the participants in the final event. Each region was composed of six teams, resulting in 48 teams participating in the tournament at the conclusion of their regular season, and in some cases, after a conference tournament. The forty-fifth tournament's champion was LSU, coached by Skip Bertman. The Most Outstanding Player was Gary Hymel of LSU.1992 Major League Baseball draft
The 1992 Major League Baseball draft took place on June 1, 1992, through a conference call involving all 28 MLB teams of the time. Phil Nevin of Cal State Fullerton was the first overall selection, chosen by the Houston Astros. Derek Jeter, widely considered a future member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, was selected by the New York Yankees with the sixth selection. In addition to Nevin, Paul Shuey, B. J. Wallace, Jeffrey Hammonds, and Chad Mottola were selected ahead of Jeter. The supplemental draft of ‘92 also consisted of three eastern collegiate All stars Sean Jordan of Penn State, Darryl Mcclish of Rutgers , and John DeSalvo of Stockton University.2000 Seattle Seahawks season
The 2000 Seattle Seahawks season was the franchise's 25th season in the National Football League, The first of two seasons the Seahawks played at Husky Stadium while Qwest Field was being built and the second under head coach Mike Holmgren. The 2000 Seahawks' pass defense surrendered 7.63 yards-per-attempt (including quarterback sacks), one of the ten-worst totals in the history of the NFL. They failed to improve on their 9-7 record from 1999 and missed out on the playoffs since 1998.2015 Washington Redskins season
The 2015 Washington Redskins season was the franchise's 84th season in the National Football League and the second under head coach Jay Gruden and first under general manager Scot McCloughan. Quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a concussion during the second preseason game and consequently missed the rest of the preseason. Kirk Cousins was later named the starter for the season, and set multiple Redskins franchise records.
The Redskins improved from their 4–12 record from the previous season, going 9–7 and clinching the NFC East division title for the first time since 2012. However, they were defeated by the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.2016 Washington Redskins season
The 2016 Washington Redskins season was the franchise's 85th season in the National Football League and the third under head coach Jay Gruden.
The season saw the Redskins play in London for the first time in franchise history, where they tied the Cincinnati Bengals 27-27.
After a loss in the final week to the New York Giants, the Redskins were eliminated from playoff contention. Despite missing the playoffs, the Redskins finished the season with a record of 8-7-1, which was the first consecutive winning seasons for the team since the 1996 and 1997 seasons. Along with the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington was the only team in 2016 that played seven regular-season games against teams that would reach the playoffs: four games combined against Dallas and the New York Giants, games against Green Bay and Detroit (as the NFC North was the only division besides the NFC East to send more than one team to the 2016 postseason) and a game against the sole AFC North 2016 playoff team (Pittsburgh); the Redskins' 2-5 record in these contests was a major reason they did not return to the playoffs.2017 Washington Redskins season
The 2017 Washington Redskins season was the franchise's 86th season in the National Football League and the fourth under head coach Jay Gruden. The Redskins ended the season losing seven of the final 11 games after a 3-2 start, failing to improve on their 8–7–1 record from the previous season, and were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs after losing to the Chargers. This was likely due to the abundance of injuries at key positions and one of the league's toughest schedules.
In Week 2, the Redskins played the Rams in Los Angeles for the first time in 23 years. It was also their first game in the L.A. Coliseum in 28 years. Washington got their first win in the Coliseum in 43 years.
Also, this was the last of six seasons that quarterback Kirk Cousins was on the roster, as he would join the Minnesota Vikings in the following offseason.Bruce Allen (American football)

Kent Auburn McCloughan (born February 12, 1940) is a former football player and scout. He played cornerback for the American Football League's Oakland Raiders from 1965 through 1969, and for the National Football League's Raiders in 1970, but his career ended early because of a devastating knee injury.
With Willie Brown, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, he is considered to be the originator or one of the earliest proficient exponents of Bump and run coverage, by which a defensive back impedes progress of the wide receiver by body contact, a style that was followed by later Oakland cornerbacks, such as Lester Hayes. The strategy appeared so successful in the eyes of NFL rule-makers that, to help the offense, the rules were changed in 1974, 1977, and 1978, with each rule change favoring the receiver over the defender (see Penalty (American football).)
In 1974, the most severe rule change regarding pass receivers and defenders was enacted. This rule stipulated that a player could only make contact one time beyond 3 yards of the line of scrimmage.
In 1977, the rule was amended to aid the pass receivers yet again. Starting that season, a defender could only make contact with a receiver one time overall, whether it be within 3 yards of the line of scrimmage or further downfield.
In 1978, the rule was amended to aid the pass receivers yet again. Starting that season, a defender could make contact with a receiver only one time, and within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage. If the defender made contact with a receiver 6 yards or more from the line of scrimmage, it was now considered pass interference, even if the ball was not yet in the air.
A native of Broken Bow, Nebraska, McCloughan established a Nebraska state record (21.4 sec) in the 220 yard dash in 1961, which stood until Kenzo Cotton broke it in 2012.List of Americans of Irish descent
