Name: Paul Kelly

Title: Director of Football Operations

Experience: 20 years

Bio: 2018 will mark Paul Kelly’s ninth year as Director of Football Operations for the Washington Redskins. He has a total of two decades of experience at the NFL level, beginning with six years in Oakland followed by five years in Tampa Bay. In both cases, Kelly served with an official title of “Assistant to the Head Coach / Football Operations.” After a year working for Monday Night Football, Kelly found his way to the Redskins, where he’s been ever since. Before getting involved in the NFL, Kelly was a small business owner in the Bay Area in Cailfornia.

Fun Fact: Kelly is known for his tendency to wear pastel-colored, Hawaiian-style shirts during road trips, a habit that once led to a “tribute” of sorts by many members of the Redskins roster.
