The Redskins announced Wednesday afternoon that they have hired Malcolm Blacken as their director of player development.

It marks the third stint Blacken has held with Washington. He replaces former Redskin Phillip Daniels, who held the director of player development position for the 2012 season but departed in February.

Blacken was a member of Washington’s strength and conditioning staff from 1996 to 2000 and for the 2010 season. He served as Detroit’s strength and conditioning coach from 2001 to 2009.

Blacken served as the University of Colorado’s director of speed, strength and conditioning in 2011 and 2012.

Mike Jones covers the Washington Redskins for The Washington Post. When not writing about a Redskins development of some kind – which is rare – he can be found screaming and cheering at one of his kids’ softball, baseball, soccer or basketball games.
