Matt Malaspina, who spent the past four years as the 49ers’ director of college scouting, has joined the Green Bay Packers’ player personnel department.
The Packers on Friday announced the hiring of Malaspina as a college scout.
Malaspina becomes the second high-ranking member of the 49ers’ scouting department to leave the organization in moves announced this week. On Wednesday, the 49ers announced assistant general manager Tom Gamble was no longer with the organization.
Malaspina spent 12 years with the 49ers after being an area scout with the Seattle Seahawks for five seasons. Before moving into the position as the 49ers’ director of college scouting, Malaspina was a national scout with the 49ers. He was responsible for cross-checking the southeast region, as well as top prospects across the country.
Shortly after being hired as 49ers general manager, John Lynch hired Adam Peters as vice president of player personnel and former Detroit GM Martin Mayhew as senior personnel executive to become his top two assistants.
