Kecoughtan High graduate Morocco Brown, the Washington Redskins’ director of player personnel, interviewed Friday for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ general manager job, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Brown, a former N.C. State linebacker, interviewed for Arizona’s GM job last year and just completed his sixth season with the Redskins. After Washington coach Mike Shanahan was fired, Redskins GM Bruce Allen said he anticipated working closely with Brown. At least three other candidates are interviewing for the Bucs’ GM post.
