      REDSKINS NAME DOUG WILLIAMS PERSONNEL EXECUTIVE

      LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have named Doug Williams as Personnel Executive.

      The hiring marks Williams’ return to the Redskins, with whom he was one of the most celebrated athletes in franchise history. Williams, a member of the 80 Greatest Redskins and a Redskins Ring of Famer, played with the Redskins from 1986-89 and led Washington to a Super Bowl XXII title, a 42-10 rout of the Denver Broncos. Williams, the first African-American quarterback to play in a Super Bowl, completed 18-of-29 passes for 340 yards with four touchdown passes to earn Super Bowl MVP honors.

      "It's great to be home again,” Williams said. “It also is great to be affiliated with a GM 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 is a veteran of 17 NFL seasons, including nine as a player and eight in scouting/personnel roles. He spent five seasons as Personnel Executive with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2004-08 before being named the team’s Director of Pro Personnel for the 2009 season.

      "We are focused on finding people with genuine football insight and a passion for winning,” Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen said. “As a player, coach and scout, Doug has seen it all and done it all, and we believe he has an incredible talent for identifying the type of players we want with the Redskins."

      Williams’ background also includes two separate stints as head coach at his alma mater, Grambling State, from 1998-2003 and 2011-13. Williams compiled a 61-34 (.642) record at Grambling, leading the Tigers to four Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) championships, three Black College National Championships from 2000-02 and three 10-win seasons in his nine years leading the program.

      Williams had a spectacular college career as Grambling’s quarterback from 1974-77, passing for more than 8,000 yards with 93 touchdowns, leading the Tigers to three Black College National Championships and two SWAC titles. He posted a 36-7 record as a starter and finished fourth in voting for the 1977 Heisman Trophy.

      Williams, 58, is a native of Zachary, La.
