Smith spent nine years as general manager of the San Diego Chargers before he was fired on Dec. 31.

Smith joins his son, Kyle, who has been an area scout for the Redskins for the past two seasons.

The Redskins announced the move Wednesday. They did not give any details to Smith's duties. Bruce Allen remains the general manager, and coach Mike Shanahan has the final say in football matters.
