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.
