Last month, reports out of Washington indicated that the Redskins would bring Doug Williams back to the organization in a front office role.
Those reports were on the monry. The Redskins announced that they have hired Williams as a personnel executive who will work with General Manager Bruce Allen and the rest of the front office to build the roster in Washington.
“It’s great to be home again,” Williams said in a statement from the team. “It also is great to be affiliated with a G.M. and coach who are so focused and dedicated to winning. I have only one mission: to help this team obtain the talent it needs so the fans can experience the Super Bowl they deserve.”
Williams worked with Allen in the Tampa front office in between his stints as the head coach of the Grambling football team, the second of which ended when he was fired last September. Williams, who was a 1978 first-round pick by the Bucs, also played four years for the Redskins in the late 1980s. That tenure included a victory over the Broncos in Super Bowl XXII with Williams taking home the Super Bowl MVP trophy for his efforts.
