During the Introductory Press Conference, General Manager John Lynch announced that the San Francisco 49ers have hired Martin Mayhew, the ex-GM of the Detroit Lions. He will become a Senior Personnel Executive, according to Lynch.
Since, Lynch does not have any prior experience being GM, it seemed fitting that John hired an ex-GM to show him the ropes as he learns on the job. The connection between Lynch and Mayhew comes from their playing days with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1990s.
Here's his career prior to joining the San Francisco 49ers:
General Manager, Detroit Lions (2008-2015)
Director of Football Operations, New York Giants (2016)
Along with Adam Peters, Lynch continues to surround himself with intelligent, experienced Executives. What do you guys think of this hire?
