Redskins hire Doug Williams

National Football Post

The Washington Redskins have hired former Super Bowl winning quarterback Doug Williams as a personnel executive.

Williams worked for Redskins general manager Bruce Allen with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

A former Buccaneers first-round draft pick who won a Super Bowl as the Redskins' quarterback and was named Most Valuable Player of that win over the Denver Broncos, Williams has been a head coach at Grambling.

“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.”
