Cleveland, OH, United States (4E Sports) – The Cleveland Browns will tap Washington Redskins director of pro personnel Morocco Brown for a high-ranking position in its front office.
It wasn’t immediately clear what title Brown would hold, but it may be Vice President of Player Personnel.
Brown had been passed over for several general manager positions despite interviews in the last three years. Earlier this offseason, he interviewed with Tampa Bay, but did not receive an offer for that job.
With the Redskins, Brown coordinated the advance scouting of opponents, played a key role in the draft and evaluated all professional leagues for potential free agents and trade prospects.
Brown was instrumental in the Redskins signing free agents under Mike Shanahan, most notably Barry Cofield, Stephen Bowen, and Josh Wilson during the 2010 offseason.
“I think it’s a great opportunity for Morocco for his continued development,” said Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen.
