Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk is reporting that the team has parted ways with former Director of College Scouting Scott Campbell. Campbell had been with the team for almost a couple of decades. Campbell was most recently a Senior Personnel Executive for the team. This now marks two years in a row where the team has fired a major contributor in the scouting department. It is assumed that Bruce Allen, Doug Williams, and Kyle Smith (who is now the Director of College Scouting) will now have even bigger roles in selecting college talent.
Scott Campbell spoke to the media about the 2014 and 2017 drafts.
Per source, Washington has parted ways with veteran scout Scott Campbell; he was director of college scouting through 2017 draft.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 9, 2018
Check that: Took over that role last June for this year. so was in charge of it for this draft. Brings energy/passion among other attributes to the job. Had a good draft too. SC a good guy; scouts not always heard. recall him being a big Moses fan.— John Keim (@john_keim) May 9, 2018
This is true. He had also talked about possibly retiring after this year. Skins don't feel they need to replace. Have inside parts they can shift around; promote, etc. SC's role changed under Scot M. SC did run a lot of draft in 17; others had increased roles then too https://t.co/Ft1R5E3lcP— John Keim (@john_keim) May 9, 2018
To me, this is about Kyle Smith. That dude is a rising star. As I just talked about with @chaddukes, the view of him around the league is that he's a surefire future GM. #Redskins want that to happen here if it's gonna happen soon.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) May 9, 2018
Per @1067theFan sources: Senior Personnel Executive Scott Campbell's contract had expired, so that's why the #Redskins and he parted ways as @ProFootballTalk first reported. Was with the #Skins for 17 years. Hearing Doug Williams made main part of this decision.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) May 9, 2018
