Williams lands new role with The Washington Football Team

The Washington Football Team announced legendary former head football coach and Grambling alum Doug Williams will take on a new executive role with the organization for the 2021 season.  

Williams will now serve as the Senior Advisor to Team President Jason Wright.  

His most recent executive role was the senior vice president of player development.  

“I know what I know and I know what I don’t know. I’d be arrogant as heck to think I understand our history, this fan base, and this DMV community the way I need to,” Wright tweeted. “Doug knows all of this. Doug is our history. Doug is trusted [in] the community. I need him in my ear.”

This is Williams’ fourth executive office role with the The Washington Football team. He won a Super Bowl with the team in 1989.
