Trent Baalke strikes again. The former 49ers GM is in his second year in Jacksonville in that role and is adding some familiar talent to his ranks.

Per Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, 49ers vice president of player personnel Ethan Waugh will leave San Francisco to re-join Baalke in Jacksonville.

Waugh was initially a personnel assistant before being promoted to area scout in 2008. He spent four years as the 49ers’ midwest regional scout, three years as the team’s senior personnel assistant, three as senior player personnel coordinator and then another three as director of college scouting and football systems before making it to vice president.

As Breer reports, it gives the 49ers’ leadership structure a bit more clarity and, with Adam Peters as assistant general manger and Ran Carthon as director of player personnel. Both have been interviewed for general manager roles over the past two years.
