The Washington Redskins announced today that they have named Morocco Brown Director of Pro Personnel.
Brown will be responsible for coordinating the advance scouting of Redskins opponents and the evaluation of all pro leagues for potential free agents and trade prospects.
"It is good to have Morocco back as a member of the Washington Redskins organization," said Executive Vice President/Football Operations Vinny Cerrato. "He has worked really hard and deserves this opportunity. His success and hard work have prepared him for this job."
Brown spent the past seven seasons (2001-07) with the Chicago Bears as Assistant Director of Pro Personnel. Brown directed the advance scouting of upcoming AFC opponent and the Arena Football League.
During his tenure in Chicago, the Bears captured the 2006 NFC Championship and made the club's first Super Bowl appearance since 1985 against the Indianapolis Colts.
"Morocco is an excellent addition to our organization and is very qualified to take on this responsibility," said Washington Redskins Director of Player Personnel Scott Campbell. "He has a great work ethic and is a very skilled talent evaluator. Morocco is very prepared to direct our Pro Personnel department."
Brown is in his second stint with the Redskins organization. He spent the 2000 season and 2001 offseason as an assistant scout with Washington. Brown's responsibilities included preparing weekly scouting reports, evaluating NFL prospects and managing free agent and draft prospect visits.
Brown originally entered the NFL as a scouting intern for the Indianapolis Colts in the spring of 2000. He is a 1999 graduate of North Carolina State University, where he lettered in football for four years and served as team captain his senior season. He led the Wolfpack in tackles for three straight seasons and was twice named honorable mention All-ACC.
Brown was a teammate of Pro Scout Alex Santos at North Carolina State. He earned a bachelor of science degree in parks, recreation and tourism with a concentration in program/sports management.
A native of Hampton, Va., Brown attended Kecoughtan High School. Brown's brother, Milan, is the head men's basketball coach at Mount St. Mary's in Maryland.
