REDSKINS HIRE FORMER PLAYER PHILLIP DANIELS
AS DIRECTOR OF PLAYER DEVELOPMENT


ASHBURN, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have hired Phillip Daniels as the team’s Director of Player Development.

Daniels joins the Redskins with 15 seasons of NFL experience as a defensive lineman, including his final seven seasons as a member of the Redskins. A fourth round selection in the 1996 NFL Draft (No. 99 overall), he played four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks (1996-99), four seasons with the Chicago Bears (2000-03) and seven seasons with the Redskins (2004-10).

"We welcome Phillip back to the Redskins family,” said Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen. "His 15 years of NFL experience will be a great asset for our football team."

In 201 career games (167 starts), Daniels totaled 512 tackles (390 solo), 62 sacks, one interception, 51 passes defensed, 15 forced fumbles and 12 fumble recoveries, according to STATS, Inc. In his time as a member of the Redskins, he was a part of four defenses that ranked in the top 10 in the NFL in yards allowed per game (2004, 05, 07 and 09).

“I’m really looking forward to helping our players and team win, on and off the field,” Daniels said.

Daniels played collegiately at the University of Georgia from 1992-95, finishing his college career with 244 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 12 sacks. He started at three different positions while at Georgia, including defensive end as a senior, linebacker as a junior and defensive tackle as a sophomore.

Daniels is a native of Donalsonville, Ga. He and his wife Leslie are the parents of son, DaVaris, a freshman wide receiver at Notre Dame, daughters Damara and DaKiya and son, DaKendrick.

Part of building a winner on the field involves infusing the organization with high character people.

Phil definitely fits that category and I'm glad he's back in the fold.
