Ever since the Redskins fired general manager Scot McCloughan on March 9, the conventional wisdom has been that the Redskins would find a replacement from within the organization.
This time, the conventional wisdom appears to have been right, at least as far as the likelihood of anyone from outside of the organization being brought in the replace McCloughan.
John Wooten of the Fritz Pollard Alliance said that the Redskins have submitted a plan to reorganize the front office without replacing McCloughan, accordin to Jason Cole of the Bleacher Report.
The Fritz Pollard Alliance is an organization that promotes diversity within the ranks of NFL coaches and front office executives.
They monitor compliance with the Rooney Rule, which requires that minority candidates be interviewed for head coaching and general manager jobs.
Cole said that the alliance doesn’t yet know the details of the Redskins’ plan. Among the Redskins’ current front office members who could be elevated is Doug Williams, who was the first black quarterback to win the Super Bowl.

From this report, it appears that the Redskins may not actually give anyone the title of “general manager”.
But with the details of the plan still under examination by the NFL we will have to wait and see how this all shakes out.
