The San Francisco 49ers promoted Adam Peters to the role of assistant general manager, the team announced on Friday.

Peters served as the vice president of player personnel for the 49ers for the last four years. He spent the previous eight seasons with the Denver Broncos, serving multiple roles related to the team's college scouting department.

Friday's promotion comes on the heels of Peters interviewing for the general manager vacancy with the Carolina Panthers last month.

"Adam has earned this promotion, which is a result of his hard work and dedication to the 49er Way," 49ers general manager John Lynch said. "He has been a tremendous asset to our team and we look forward to Adam continuing to play an integral role in all aspects of football operations in our quest to compete for championships."
