The longest serving member of the Washington Redskins scouting department has been informed that the Redskins will not renew his contact. After 17 seasons at Ashburn, Scott Campbell will exit the Redskins organization. Campbell was informed by new Executive Vice President Doug Williams that his contract would be left go.
Lats year the Redskins re-organized their front office by promoting former Redskins Superbowl quarterback Doug Williams to senior vice president of player personnel. At that point, Campbell was promoted to senior personnel executive, while young talent Kyle Smith was promoted to director of college scouting. The move may very well be paving the way to promote the talented Kyle Smith to General Manager. The Redskins have not really replaced the General Manage position since Scot McCloughan left the organization last year. Team President Bruce Allen and Williams are running the franchise, while Williams gets most credit for what has been a highly acclaimed 2018 NFL Draft for the Redskins. Smith, in his 30s, is highly regarded around the NFL as a future GM and could be attractive to other franchise, much like former Offensive Coordinator and current ST. Louis Rams head coach Sean McVay. One way to hold off poaching is to promote, and the Redskins are certainly floating Smith’s name and the GM position for a reason.
