Scott Campbell, previously Director of College Scouting, is now the senior personnel executive.
"We had a general manager - it didn't work out that well", Williams said, referring to the two-year tenure of Scot McCloughan, who was sacked in March.
Williams, the 1988 Super Bowl MVP for the Redskins, has spent the past three years as a senior personnel executive for the team. "Our job is not to coach 'em, our job is to pick 'em".
Redskins President Bruce Allen said the organization talked to more than a dozen candidates to fit the role that Williams is now going to serve in, but it was clear from the start who was best suited to serve as Senior Vice President of Player Personnel. It appears that Allen is the boss of everyone else in the front office, and so it will ultimately be Allen's call, with Williams as his right-hand man. He played with Washington from 1986-89, was named a member of the 80 Greatest Redskins and is a Redskins Ring of Famer.

Williams stuck around after those two left, serving as the Bucs' director of pro personnel in 2009.
The plan Williams presented to the team did not include the general manager title. "No different than how we did free agency, no different than how we did the draft". Williams worked under current Washington team president Bruce Allen in Tampa Bay, and both he and head coach Jay Gruden will report directly to Allen. Now the next step is to get the Redskins back to the Super Bowl.
The Redskins will announce personnel changes Tuesday morning, according to a news release sent to the media Monday night.
