Former Washington Redskins as general manager Scot McCloughan is still very attached to the team. And he continues to do some very good things for the community.
McCloughan was fired from the Redskins earlier this year after two years with the franchise. The decision to part ways with the talented executive was unexpected to fans, but McCloughan still speaks highly of the organization. The Redskins and McCloughan himself have both said this was a mutual decision to replace the dedicated GM. McCloughan is still very supportive of the Redskins and is choosing to give back even after his unexpected departure.
With the suggestion from his wife (the story courtesy of ESPN’s John Keim), McCloughan is currently selling his official Redskins’ team merchandise on E-Bay. His items that he is auctioning off includes signed team clothing items such as, hats and jackets. The clothing items, which are reasonably priced, were worn by him while he was the general manager of the team. Prices of the items range from around $100 to about $400.
Profits from the sale will be donated to the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation. It was founded in 2000 to help children in the community. The foundation focuses on education, health, and community outreach with the help from the Redskins. The organization is represented by a council of business leaders of the community. So far the foundation has helped to raise more than $16 million dollars to help the children in the community.
McCloughan is making sure he leaves on good terms with the Redskins. McCloughan told the media that he is very familiar with the foundation and he had first-hand experience with it. Although he is preparing to leave Washington, he is still grateful to give back to the community who supported him.
