MOBILE, Ala. - 49ers general manager John Lynch announced that the team has promoted Martin Mayhew to vice president of player personnel.

Mayhew, who spent the previous two years with the title senior personnel executive, will continue to work closely with Adam Peters. Both will hold the title of vice president of player personnel. 

“When we brought Martin in,” Lynch said, "I always thought it was a nebulous, almost temporary title. He’s always had great value to me and to our organization from day one. We felt like it was time to go ahead and make that official.” 

Lynch did not get into specifics regarding what each will be responsible for, but Peters will have an emphasis on the pro-level personnel and Mayhew will be more focused on college scouting side. 

“Their roles, they’re refining some things," Lynch said. "But bottom line is Martin has been a great value to me, Kyle everybody around we felt like it was time to make this thing a little more permanent. He’s frankly earned and deserves that title.” 

Prior to his time with the 49ers, Mayhew spent time as the general manager of the Lions and as the New York Giants as the director of football operations. He played cornerback in Washington and was teammates with Lynch in Tampa Bay from 1993-1996.
