Washington Redskins make a major announcement following the termination of former General Manager, Scot McCloughan. Doug Williams has been named the Senior Vice-President of team Personnel. Williams is best known for his skills as a quarterback for the Washington Redskins and being the first African American starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl. One of the most memorable moments in his career was during Super Bowl XXII when he passed for a super bowl record with 340 yards and 4 touchdowns with 1 interception; then named the game’s MVP.
Williams had a great professional career, playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Oklahoma/Arizona Outlaws and of course, the Washington Redskins. Doug Williams was not only great on the field be he was the former Head Coach of the Grambling State Tigers football team.
Although this is a new position of leadership for Doug Williams, he is far from being new within the management side of the organization. Williams has been a personnel executive with the Redskins since 2014. Doug Williams has proven both his athletic and professional skills to the organization. Both Doug Williams and Jay Gruden will be reporting to team President Bruce Allen and the team us looking forward to moving forward with new insight and collaboration within the team’s structure.
We know the fans are interested and vested in the outcome of this big change. Have a great season!
