The Washington Redskins announced Monday that Doug Williams, the quarterback who brought Washington their last Super Bowl title, has joined the front office where he will work with general manager Bruce Allen as assistant gm.
"It's great to be home again," Williams said in a statement. "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."
According to the Washington Post, Williams and the Redskins had been discussing the position in recent weeks and by Monday the move had been made official.
"We are focused on finding people with genuine football insight and a passion for winning," Allen said in a statement. "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 played for the Redskins from (1986-89) and was named MVP of Super Bowl XXII after throwing for 340 yards and four touchdowns while leading the Redskins to a 42-10 victory over the Denver Broncos.
Williams was previously head coach at Grambling State University before being fired last September.
