McCloughan told FanHouse via text message, ``I'm fine and moving forward.'' Fanhouse says he would not elaborate.
The report says the decision followed a meeting Wednesday between McCloughan, team president Jed York and several members of the 49ers' front office.
Calls and an e-mail from The Associated Press to McCloughan's agent, Peter Schaffer, were not immediately returned Thursday. The 49ers did not return multiple calls or text messages, and e-mails to McCloughan and York weren't returned.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat first reported Wednesday that McCloughan was considering stepping down as 49ers general manager.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the 49ers a 40/1 long shot to win the 2011 Super Bowl.
