EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings college scouting director Scott Studwell has resigned from the position he held for 12 years, stepping back to a different role in the front office.
The Vikings confirmed Monday that Studwell will be replaced by Jamaal Stephenson, who has been the assistant director of college scouting since 2009. The news was first reported Sunday by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, citing Studwell's desire to spend less time traveling and more with family.
Studwell played 14 seasons as a linebacker for the Vikings, who added him to their Ring of Honor in 2009. The 59-year-old Studwell has been with the organization since he was drafted in 1977 in the ninth round out of Illinois, serving as player personnel coordinator for 10 seasons until his promotion in 2002.
