Assistant personnel man Brown leaves for Washington

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears will be out on the market looking for help and it won’t be for a player.

Assistant director of pro personnel Morocco Brown has left to become the director of pro personnel for the Washington Redskins. Brown departs after seven seasons in the role, taking a promotion to return to the organization he worked for before he was hired to work under pro personnel boss Bobby DePaul.

Brown will become the No. 3 man in Washington under vice president Vinny Cerrato and former Bears front office man Scott Campbell, who is the director of player personnel. Brown, whose contract was expiring next month, also drew interest from the Arizona Cardinals. He was regarded as a sharp mind and hard worker.

It’s the first significant movement in the front office for general manager Jerry Angelo since Southeast scout Phil Emery left to become the college scouting director for the Atlanta Falcons in 2004. The Bears can promote assistant pro scout Kevin Turks into Brown’s position or consider other options, including looking outside the organization.
