When Doug Williams led the Washington Redskins to a win in Super Bowl XXII in 1988 he became the first black quarterback to lead his team to a championship in NFL history. At the time Williams was the only black quarterback in the NFL, but it wasn’t his skin color that made him stand out, it was his remarkable play.
During his nine-year career in the NFL Williams earned respect for his high level of play and his courage to stand up for his values despite facing the obstacles that came with being the only black quarterback in the league. After his playing career came to an end in 1989 he joined the coaching ranks, briefly serving as a collegiate assistant and professional scout prior to landing head coaching jobs at Morehouse College and his college alma mater, Grambling State.
In 2004 Williams returned to the NFL as a Personnel Executive with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and eventually worked his way up to Coordinator of Pro Scouting in 2009. Currently Williams serves as Personnel Executive with the Washington Redskins, who have honored him with induction into the Redskins Ring of Fame.
Williams is also a member of the College Football Hall of Fame, and is considered one of the greatest all-around players in history.
