    • Redskins Announce Ryan Vermillion as Head Athletic Trainer

      For Immediate Release
      January 6, 2020


      LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have named Ryan Vermillion to the role of head athletic trainer.

      “Ryan Vermillion is one of the most respected and seasoned head athletic trainers in the NFL,” said Washington Redskins Owner Dan Snyder. “His 25-plus years of NFL experience and his familiarity with Coach Rivera made him a perfect fit for our organization.”

      “For many years, I’ve seen firsthand the positive impact Ryan has on a team,” said Washington Redskins Head Coach Ron Rivera. “His primary focus has always been the health of the players and he is going to be a tremendous addition to the Redskins.”

      “The Washington Redskins are very fortunate to be able to add Ryan Vermillion to our training staff. He is one of the most valued and senior athletic trainers in the NFL,” said Redskins Team Doctor James Andrews. “His experience in the field brings our medical team to the highest level and furthers our goal of being the best in the NFL.”

      Vermillion spent 18 seasons as the head athletic trainer for the Carolina Panthers, nine of which he worked under former Panthers Head Coach and current Redskins Head Coach Ron Rivera. During his tenure with Carolina, Vermillion was responsible for the coordination of all aspects of health care for the Panthers. He managed the athletic training room, including all full-time and season-long trainers and is experienced in risk management and injury prevention along with pathology of injuries and illnesses and rehabilitation. Vermillion is also well versed in the nutritional aspects of injury and illness. He was given the Fain-Cain Memorial Award for Outstanding NFL Trainer of the Year in 2016 and in 2003 he led the training staff of the year as voted on by his fellow NFL colleagues.

      Prior to working in Carolina, Vermillion was the Director of Rehabilitation for the Washington Redskins and will now return to the team after 18 seasons. Prior to his one season in Washington, he spent nine seasons working under Hall of Fame Head Coach Don Shula with the Miami Dolphins. In Miami he spent four seasons as the head athletic trainer and five seasons as the director of rehabilitation and associate athletic trainer. Vermillion was a 1987 graduate of the University of Miami (Fla.) and spent four years as a student athletic trainer.
