Quentus Cumby
Pro Personnel Scout

BIOGRAPHY

Quentus Cumby is in his ninth year with the 49ers and second as the assistant director of pro personnel. He spent the previous seven seasons as the team’s pro personnel scout.

In his role, Cumby evaluates both NFL talent and players from other professional football leagues.  He serves as the 49ers weekly advance scout for the personnel and coaching staffs. During the offseason, he evaluates the team’s roster and all pending NFL free agents prior to free agency, while also assisting with draft preparation.

Prior to joining the 49ers, Cumby was a physical education teacher at Ben Franklin Intermediate in Daly City, CA, during the 2005 to 2006 term. He began his teaching career in the fall of 2005 after spending the summer as an intern with the Green Bay Packers player personnel department under Ted Thompson and Reggie McKenzie.

In 2003, Cumby was invited to participate in training camp by the Packers as a free agent safety. One year later, he spent the summer of 2004 playing the position in the Canadian Football League with the Edmonton Eskimos.

Cumby lettered in football and ran track at Cleburne (TX) High School, where he was an all-state free safety in 1999. He went on to earn a football scholarship to the University of Kentucky and was a two-year starter at free safety and cornerback from 1999-02. He graduated in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology.

Cumby resides in East Palo Alto, CA, with his wife Liz, and two children, Drew and Kyla.
