NBC Sports

Martin Mayhew, who spent four seasons in the 49ers' front office, reportedly is leaving for a high-ranking role with Washington.

Mayhew will work alongside Washington coach Ron Rivera and general manager Marty Hurney as the organization goes through a restructuring of its operations, reports Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Mayhew served with the 49ers' personnel department for four seasons, including the past two as vice president of player personnel. Mayhew's contributions mostly were on the pro scouting side. Fellow vice president of player personnel Adam Peters' focus was primarily on college scouting.

Peters was a recent finalist for the general manager job with the Carolina Panthers. Former Seattle executive Scott Fitterer was hired for the role with the Panthers.

Prior to being hired to join John Lynch's staff with the 49ers, Mayhew spent two years as New York Giants senior personnel executive. He spent 15 years with the Detroit Lions, including seven as the general manager.
