The Redskins are parting ways with longtime personnel executive Scott Campbell, Chris Russell of 106.7 The Fan has confirmed.

RUSSELL: Being A 'Great Guy' Got The Best Of Campbell

The decision to move on from Campbell -- whose contract had expired -- came from Doug Williams, Senior Vice President of Player Personnel, Russell reports.

Campbell has served as Washington's Senior Personnel Executive since June 2017 and previously served as the team's Director of College Scouting. He's been with the organization for 17 years and in the NFL for 32.

Campbell's Redskins.com bio credits him with setting the draft board for the team's "highly acclaimed 2017 draft class," which included defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, linebacker Ryan Anderson, running back Samaje Perine, safety Montae Nicholson and tight end Jeremy Sprinkle. Campbell is still listed as a member of the front office on the website.

The move could have something to do with protecting current Director of College Personnel, Kyle Smith, who's garnered significant interest from other clubs. Smith was highly involved in the Redskins' 2018 draft class, which graded out highly among league circles and included Alabama defensive lineman Da'Ron Payne and LSU running back Derrius Guice with the team's top two picks.

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio was first to report on the personnel change.
