REDSKINS PROMOTE KYLE SMITH TO VICE PRESIDENT OF PLAYER PERSONNEL

 

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have promoted Kyle Smith to the role of vice president of player personnel.

 

“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.

 

“I am excited for the opportunity to oversee both the college and professional sides of the scouting department,” said Vice President of Player Personnel Kyle Smith. “Our staff is looking forward to working together with Coach Rivera to build the best team possible.”

 

In his new role, Smith will now oversee both the college and pro personnel aspects of the front office. Smith has worked in player personnel with the Redskins for 10 seasons and spent three seasons as the team's director of college personnel.

 

Smith initially joined the team on a full-time basis as an area scout during the 2011 offseason. After being promoted to director of college personnel in June 2017, Smith oversaw the organization's evaluation of collegiate talent, managing scouting efforts at both the area and national levels.

 

Smith began his professional career as an intern with the Redskins in 2010. He joined the team on a full-time basis in 2011 and spent six seasons as an area scout for the organization. Prior to his promotion to director of college personnel, Smith oversaw the team’s scouting efforts in the Southeast region, a region that produced the team's first- and second-round picks in both the 2017 and 2018 NFL Drafts.

Guy is a good one. Coaches and cap guys are one thing... But you dont let a dude like that go. You show him the portrait you're thinking of, and you let him paint.

 

Great decision by Coach Rivera

reports into Smith I’d say.

For a little too long, I was wondering why anyone would be reporting to Alex Smith....

Is Kyle Smith allowed to play Ping-Pong ?

 

 

Maybe he prefers an Ice hockey table? Or foosball?

He strikes me as a Pacman arcade kinda guy

 

Great move, I'm glad we are keeping him in the fold.  I feel confident he can build a winner, he already has put together some good young talent.

Wonder if they still make a move for a traditional GM or if this is the de facto GM move....Thoughts?

I bet they stay put for the most part. Like someone mentioned, Kyle will report to Ron, therefore the vp title.  I'm assuming Santos is gone after the draft.

Nice. Glad to see him recognized. We've had several pretty strong drafts in a row. Our free agency has lagged although to be fair it free agency was really limited due to the Alex Smith albatross.
