Wyllie joined the Redskins in May 2010, leaving the Houston Texans organization – where he served in the same capacity – to replace Dan Snyder's former top lieutenant, Karl Swanson.

Wyllie fulfilled a wide array of duties for the organization. Per his Redskins.com biography, he "serves as an advisor to the principal owner on all issues related to public perception of the franchise. He shapes and molds the team image through all public contacts and publicity generation, serves as liaison between team and local and national media, oversees coordination of all interviews and serves as team spokesman."
