Doug Williams will work in Redskins' front office

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Doug Williams is coming back to the Washington Redskins to work in the front office.

The Redskins announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive.

Williams quarterbacked the Redskins from 1986-89 and has worked in the front office with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, including one season as director of pro personnel in 2009.

Williams has also had two stints coaching his alma mater, Grambling State. He was fired last year two games into the season despite a 61-34 record at the school. Williams' dismissal upset the players, and they refused to travel to Jackson State for a game later in the season after another coaching change.

Says Williams: ''It's great to be home again.''
