The Washington Redskins announced today that they have hired Malcolm Blacken as the team’s Director of Player Development.

Blacken rejoins the Redskins for his third stint with the team after serving as a strength and conditioning coach from 1996-2000 and during the 2010 season.

Blacken previously served as the Director of Speed, Strength and Conditioning for the University of Colorado’s 16 varsity programs, including day-to-day operations with the Buffaloes football program, during the 2011-12 seasons.

From 2001-09, he served as the Detroit Lions’ strength and conditioning coach. Before his first stint in Washington, Blacken was an assistant strength coach for the University of Virginia's football program in 1995 and worked with all other sports in the Cavaliers' athletic department as well.

For three years (1992-94), Blacken served as the head strength and conditioning coach for George Mason University, where he oversaw the program for all of the university's varsity sports.

Blacken began his coaching career at the University of South Carolina in 1990-91 as the football program's assistant strength and conditioning coach.

Blacken graduated from Virginia Tech in 1989 with bachelor's degrees in art and physical education. He was a Hokies running back from 1984-88 and was a four-time letter winner.

While at Virginia Tech, Blacken was a two-time winner of the Super Iron Hokie Award (1987-88), which is given yearly to the football program's strongest player at each position.

Blacken graduated from Mathews County (Va.) H.S., where he lettered in football, basketball and track. 

He was an All-State performer in football and track, winning the 1983 state championship in the 100-meter dash.
