The Redskins were willing to let Morocco Brown walk, and they didn’t have to look far to replace him.
The team announced Saturday that they promoted Alex Santos to director of pro personnel, filling the job left vacant when Morocco Brown was hired by the Browns.
Santos has been with the Redskins since 2006, spending the last six years as a pro scout.
“I appreciate the opportunity this organization has given me,” Santos said in a statement. “I am honored that I am able to continue to grow within the NFL ranks with the Redskins organization.”
Santos played guard at N.C. State, where he was a four-year starter, and has also coached at the high school and college levels.
