This past Monday, the Washington Redskins officially promoted Kyle Smith — who formerly served as the team’s Director of College Personnel — to Vice President of Player Personnel.
Quotes from the team’s statement, announcing the move:
“Kyle Smith has put in the work over the last 10 seasons and has proven to be a skilled talent evaluator,” said Washington Redskins Owner Dan Snyder. “I have been impressed with Kyle’s track record and player evaluation process, and I’m confident in the vision we share for the future of the Washington Redskins,” said Washington Redskins Head Coach Ron Rivera.
