Trent Baalke Officially Named the New GM of the Jaguars

The Jaguars made it official on Thursday morning, naming former 49ers GM Trent Baalke as their new General Manager.

Baalke comes to the team after serving as Niners GM from 2011 to 2016. With Baalke as general manager the Niners were 51-44-1.

He was named interim GM for Dave Caldwell, who was canned by the Jaguars in January.

“Trent Baalke has had success at virtually every level of football, notably so as a General Manager who shrewdly and quickly built an NFL conference championship organization and team,” Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a statement.

“That experience inspired us to recruit Trent to Jacksonville a year ago to serve as our director of player personnel and is one of the many reasons why we are naming Trent as the new General Manager of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Trent thoroughly knows the NFL and the dynamics of today’s game, has an exceptional eye for talent, and I know will have excellent chemistry with head coach Urban Meyer.”
