According to the Washington Post, the Washington Redskins have hired Morocco Brown to be their director of pro personnel.
I haven't posted much of anything about the moves in the Redskins' front office lately. It's important stuff, but I just wasn't sure about what the departure of Louis Riddick from the job that Brown will be taking meant to the future of the franchise.
And I'm not sure what the arrival of Brown means, either. He comes from the Bears where he was the assistant director of pro personnel.
The director of pro personnel is responsible for evaluating talent on other NFL teams as well as judging the value of the players currently on the team.
From what I can gather, Brown is fairly well regarded, a rising star in the business. He has ties to the Redskins; he was a scout in the late 90's.
