Redskins pro personnel director Morocco Brown was interviewed Friday for the vacant general manager position in Tampa Bay, according to the Redskins.

Brown just completed his sixth season in the Redskins’ personnel department, where he is responsible for scouting opponents, evaluating college talent and studying pro leagues for potential free agent signees and trade targets.

Late last month, general manager Bruce Allen said Brown would join director of player personnel Scott Campbell as his top advisors.

It’s unclear if Brown would leave the Redskins for a team where the new coach—Lovie Smith—holds the final say over all personnel matters on the Buccaneers’ 53-man roster. This much, however, has become clear: Brown’s ability is starting to get some recognition. Last offseason, he interviewed for the Cardinals’ general manager’s job but was not hired.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Bucs also intend to interview Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson and Falcons director of player personnel Lionel Vital, who played three games for the Redskins in 1987.

The Buccaneers fired head coach Greg Schiano and general manager Mark Dominik late last month.
