Redskins’ Morocco Brown passed over for Buccaneers’ GM job

Washington Redskins executive Morocco Brown was among the candidates passed over Tuesday when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hired Jason Licht as their general manager.

Brown, the Redskins’ director of pro personnel, interviewed for Tampa’s GM job earlier this month.

He’d worked with the Buccaneers’ newly hired coach, Lovie Smith, in Chicago and he is highly regarded around the league. He also interviewed for the Arizona Cardinals’ general manager job last year but was not hired.

The Buccaneers went instead with Licht, most recently the vice president of player personnel for the Cardinals.

“Jason is a seasoned NFL personnel veteran who has worked with some of the most accomplished individuals in professional football while contributing to success in New England, Philadelphia and Arizona,” Buccaneers co-chairman Joel Glazer said in a written statement released by the team. “His strong player personnel background provides the ideal complement to Lovie Smith’s philosophy as our head coach. We look forward to working with Jason and Lovie as we set the foundation and chart the course for the future of Buccaneers football.”
