Former Washington Redskins quarterback Doug Williams isn’t ruling out the possibility of joining the team in a front office capacity in the future.

Williams formerly worked for Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen in the front office of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He spoke to the Redskins two years ago about a front office job but instead returned to Grambling for his second stint as the school’s coach.

Now he’s out of work after being fired by the school. Williams said he is likely to sort through his options after the season.

“Originally I was headed up here to work with the Redskins before I went to Grambling,” Williams said Sunday at FedEx Field, where he was among the former players honored by the team. “But you never know what’s gonna happen. At this time, the middle of the season, that ain’t something you concentrate on. The most important thing is for them to play well the rest of the season.  And after the season’s over and things like that, then you see what your next step is.”
