BATON ROUGE (NBC33) — The Washington Redskins hired their former quarterback, Doug Williams, to join their executive team.
This news comes not long after Grambling University in Louisiana fired Williams as their head football coach in September 2013.
Williams, no stranger to the NFL, played three seasons with Washington and was the first African American quarterback to play in a Super Bowl.
In his new position, Williams will help the NFL team get new talent to help their chances in future Super Bowls.
In a statement released Monday, Williams is quoted as saying, “It’s great to be home again.”
