The Redskins continue to shuffle their front office. Washington has promoted Kyle Smith to vice president of player personnel, per a team announcement.
Smith, who served as the Redskins’ director of college personnel for the past three seasons, will assume the role that Doug Williams held before his recent reassignment to a non-personnel position. When new Washington head coach Ron Rivera spoke to reporters at his introductory press conference, he spoke highly of the club’s last three draft classes, which Smith oversaw.
Smith, 35, has spent 10 seasons with Washington and has long been mentioned as a future GM candidate.
