Doug Williams Gave Mark Schlereth The ‘Best Piece of Advice Ever’

In addition to his role as Personnel Executive, Doug Williams could be a valuable mentor in the Redskins locker room.

A series of tweets by former teammate Mark Schlereth Monday showed how the Super Bowl XXII MVP can impact impressionable members of the team when he’s not toiling to identify talent.

 

Nine years of experience as an NFL quarterback qualify Williams to be a sounding board for Robert Griffin III, who already showed he respects the executive’s input. But Williams’ leadership experience extends beyond his playing career.

He won three consecutive Black College National Championships as a the head coach at Grambling State and started his coaching career heading up high school programs in Louisiana. Williams was a college scout with the Jacksonville Jaguars for two years and worked in the personnel department of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for six years.

Back in January, before Williams and Allen could discuss the position in depth, Williams said during an interview broadcast on ESPN980 “Inside the Locker Room” that his appreciation of the Redskins grows each year

“If I get an opportunity to come back to the Redskins, I’d be more appreciative now then I would have back then because it’s dear to my heart,” Williams said. “People ask me who I’m rooting for. Who I’m rooting for ain’t playing in the playoffs! Whatever happens after that don’t matter. We’re trying to get back to where we’re supposed to be.”

    A good hire!! If he can be half as good in the office as the team was in squashing Denver in the Super Bowl, then he will be just fine. DW was a great Redskin!!
