Fired GM Scot McCloughan selling Washington merchandise, donating money to unexpected group

It’s been two months since Washington officially fired successful general manager Scot McCloughan, and the move doesn’t make much more sense now than it did at the time.

Regardless of how McCloughan and his wife, Jessica, feel about the organization and the way he was treated on his way out the door, they still have a fondness for the fans.

Which is why the pair recently decided to post some items on eBay last week. During his relatively brief tenure, McCloughan became known for two articles of clothing: a camouflage Washington ball cap and his lucky gameday tan suit. The McCloughans put the camo hat and a second hat, both autographed by Scot, on eBay last week, with the suit jacket going on the site on Monday.

As of this writing, bidding for the all-camo hat is up to $601, and the second hat, which is the team’s signature red with a gray bill, is at $202.

And get this: they’re donating the money raised from the hats to the Redskins Charitable Foundation.

“When it’s all said and done, Scot and I are still grateful that we were able to come here, so why not give back to the people that brought us here,” Jessica McCloughan told the Washington Post. “The Charitable Foundation truly does a ton of stuff for kids in the D.C. area.”

Bidding for the jacket is over $250; in the item description, Jessica McCloughan wrote that Mike Nolan bought the suit for Scot in 2005 when both were with the San Francisco 49ers. The winning bidder can get the jacket inscribed by Scot McCloughan.

The money for the jacket will be donated to Northern Virginia Family Services.
