Redskins make promotions, hires in front office

On the eve of their training camp report date, the Redskins announced four front office moves.

The team has promoted personnel assistants Jeff Scott and Josh Washburn to the positions of Pro Scout. Washington also hired Matt Evans as player personnel assistant and Brian Zeches as an administrative assistant.

Scott enters his third NFL season after spending time on Washington’s staff as a salary cap intern and scouting intern in 2012. He became a full-time player personnel assistant in 2013.

Washburn has spent the past three seasons with Washington as a scouting intern and personnel assistant.

Scott and Washburn’s responsibilities will include evaluating and writing player reports on potential free agents and conducting weekly advance scouting. They also will oversee scouting of the Canadian Football League and area colleges.

Evans and Zeches will assist with various duties in Washington’s front office.
