The Washington Redskins named Doug Williams the senior vice president of player personnel at a personnel changes meeting on Tuesday. Williams, who quarterbacked the ‘Skins to a memorable Super Bowl XXII win and was named MVP in that 42-10 victory, will report to team president Bruce Allen.
“I’ve been around the circuit, but there’s nothing like coming back here to the place that gave you an opportunity to be on top,” said Williams, the first African-American quarterback to win a Super Bowl.
Williams, who has 11 years of experience in scouting personnel roles in the NFL, previously served as a front-office executive for the Redskins, a position he began in February 2014.
“This is like home for me,” Williams added.
Williams had two coaching stints at his alma mater, Grambling State — the first from 1998-2003 and more recentlyl from 2011-13. He also previously served in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ front office.
