Could Doug Williams be next?

From ESPN Insider:
While we sort through all the rumors zipping around the Internet about Mike Shanahan coming in to coach the Washington Redskins, a man who works for another NFL team -- but who guided the Redskins to a Super Bowl as a quarterback -- might be brought in the mix too.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers director of pro personnel Doug Williams could be headed to Washington to take on a similar position, according to some speculation from Bucs blog Joe Bucs Fan. There has already been some indication that Williams would not be retained by the Bucs following this season, and a return to Washington would have a symbolic impact, not to mention the actual capacity that Williams has shown for the job.


It would be nice to get Doug back in the fold. I am really interested in seeing how this whole organizational structure is going to look in about 6 weeks. We should have a pretty good idea of what the coaching staff looks like, what the front office decision making process will be and maybe some indications on what we're planning to do with some of the roster as well.

I don't have any sources, but I am sure it is a DD (Done Deal)

Don't laugh, but so could Zorn if they rebuilt the OL in the off season.

It's funny that you mention this, because that has been one of the biggest criticisms we have of Snyder, having Vinny as the only "football mind". I like the direction that the team is taking in this regard.

Re: Could Doug Williams be next?

Morocco Brown currently has the title of Director of Pro Personnel. Isn't he widely regarded as a rising star in the league? Doug Williams's name means more around here, but I'd rather have the more highly qualified guy in that position.

I agree. Some of the coaches whose names are being tossed about I'm not a big fan of but....I feel like with the groundwork that has been laid down the last 2 years with the offense, as long as we continue with the WCO and restock the o-line we should have a good competitive winning team next year. Of course there are a couple of other holes to fill but this team is getting better and whoever the coach is, he's catching a team on the rise IMO.

Tis true. Zorn had the parts to get it done, but again, a lot of them were hidden under a whole lot of useless non contributors who couldn't beat Detroit or Kansas City. Vinny was responsible for finding the talent that could have made us a playoff team, and for having all the dead weight on the roster. And it's dead weight that a coach without a whole lot of pull couldn't really get through before it all got hurt.

Re: Could Doug Williams be next?

What exactly does Director of Pro Personnel do?

Now if this is the case wouldnt it lean more to Gruden coming here. When we were on Monday Night earlier in the year Gruden looked so intense when they would cut to him as he was breaking down the team. He was standing up with his chucky glare in full force. Now I havent seen him that way with any other team.

What offense does Shanahan run? I believe Gruden runs the WCO.

Shanahan also runs a WCO style offense that he picked up in the 49ers under Seifert, making him a branch on the Walsh tree. He started in the NFL as a qb coach and o-coord under Dan Reeves, but not sure what type of O that the Broncos ran then.

If we keep JC for another season which I thinking might happen then thats good he runs the WCO. For some reason I dont care for Shanahan but anything is better than Zorn nice guy and all but in his press confrence he talks to the reporters like children the way he explains him self and that gets under my skin.

Yeah, maybe a fresh start will be good for Shanny though, would be interesting to see who gets final word on the personnel.

Re: Could Doug Williams be next?

I think Shanny runs a variation of the WCO, but not the same style as we currently see here now. Also, we can expect more finese and zone blocking along the offesive line.
