New 49ers GM John Lynch was said to be eyeing Adam Peters as his top assistant. Today, he got his man. Peters, who spent the previous eight seasons in the Broncos’ scouting department, agreed to sign on as the 49ers’ vice president of player personnel, a source told CSNBayArea.com’s Matt Maiocco.
Peters just completed his first season as the Broncos’ director of college scouting and he has previous experience as a regional scout, national scout, and assistant director of college scouting. Before joining Denver, Peters served as a scout for the Patriots. Peters comes with a strong track record as well as personnel experience, both of which Lynch lacks.
The Niners were also looking at former Bucs GM Mark Dominik as an option, but that’s likely not happening now that Peters has been hired. Assistant GM Tom Gamble, meanwhile, appears to be staying with the team.
