Campbell Named Director of Player Personnel

The Redskins have promoted Scott Campbell to the position of Director of Player Personnel, the team announced on Sunday.

Campbell is a 21-year NFL veteran and has spent the past seven seasons with the Redskins where he has led both the college and pro personnel departments at various times during that span.

In his new role, Campbell will oversee both the college scouting and pro personnel departments for the Redskins.

"I want to thank the Washington Redskins for this opportunity," Campbell said in a statement issued by the team. "I am excited about the future of this team. I've enjoyed the experience of having headed up both the college and pro departments during my time here with the Redskins, and now look forward to combining those efforts in my new role."

Added executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato: "This is very deserving for Scott. He has proven himself adept in identifying talent on both the college and professional level and he will be a tremendous asset to our organization in his new role."

Campbell was originally hired as Director of College Scouting in 2001 but immediately following that season he moved over to the pro personnel department where he spearheaded the team's efforts during free agency.

He spent the next three seasons heading up the pro personnel department. In 2005, he returned to the college side for a second time and has worked in that position the last three years.

Prior to joining the Redskins, Campbell spent the 2000 season in Chicago as the Bears' director of pro personnel where he had the opportunity to work with Redskins defensive coordinator Greg Blache, who served in the same capacity with the Bears at that time.

From 1997-99, Campbell was with the Kansas City Chiefs as the southeast area scout.

He began his NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons in 1987, spending three years as the administrative assistant to the coaching staff, which was led by his father and then-head coach Marion Campbell.

Scott Campbell then moved to the Falcons' personnel department where he served as an area scout for seven seasons.

Campbell is a graduate of the University of Georgia, where he played on the team's offensive line. He and his wife Cindy have two children.
