Redskins Hire Ex-Player Phillip Daniels As Director Of Player Development

The Washington Redskins have hired former player Phillip Daniels as their director of player development, it was announced on Friday. Daniels spent 15 years in the NFL as a defensive lineman, which included seven with the Redskins. He retired after the 2010 with 62.0 sacks and 329 tackles in his career.

Daniels enjoyed one of his best NFL seasons with the Redskins in 2005 when he had 8.0 sacks and 48 tackles. He also knocked down eight passes that year.

"We welcome Phillip back to the Redskins family," Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen said in a team release. "His 15 years of NFL experience will be a great asset for our football team."

Daniels' exact responsibilities with the team were not spelled out in the release, but it's believed that it will likely be a mix of front office and coaching duties. He will likely work with some of the younger players, and could have some input into the Redskins' draft.
