Once a Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Player, Doug Williams waited his entire post-playing career to run a professional team. Now the former quarterback is in charge of the Washington Redskins as senior vice president of player personnel, the team announced Tuesday. He's running the show, but Williams made it clear he's not the general manager. "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 fired in March. "My job is to control [my] hallway. And I think if we do a good job, no matter what happens, we all get credit for what this football team does." In announcing Williams' promotion from senior personnel executive, team president Bruce Allen said the 61-year-old stood out among more than a dozen internal and external candidates. Allen hired Williams in Tampa Bay and has known him for a long time but said his "plan" made it clear he was the right man for the job that has been done piecemeal for the past few months. Williams, who has been with Washington since February 2014, was the first black quarterback to lead a team to victory in the Super Bowl.
