Minnesota executive Scott Studwell is no longer the Vikings' director of college scouting after a dozen years.

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that Studwell wants to spend more time with family, but will remain in the scouting department. He'll be replaced by assistant direct of college scouting Jamaal Stephenson.

“Scott has informed us that he is going to step down as the college director after the draft,” Spielman said. “But we will definitely carve out a role where he will be still a major part of this draft process. Then we’ll promote Jamaal Stephenson to his position.”
