Bruce Allen
President

“Bruce Allen is the personification of an NFL winner. Our fans know his heritage; we know his abilities. He is the right person to lead our club.” – Redskins owner Dan Snyder

Bruce Allen has come full circle. More than 30 years have passed since Allen resided in the Washington, D.C., region and was a ball boy for his father, George Allen, the late Hall of Fame head coach who led the “Over the Hill Gang” Washington Redskins to an NFC Championship in 1972 and an appearance in Super Bowl VII.

Allen joined the Redskins as the team’s Executive Vice President/General Manager on Dec. 17, 2009, after a decorated career spanning more three decades as a general manager and executive with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders and a successful run in the USFL with the Chicago Blitz and the Arizona Wranglers.

Bruce Allen has come full circle. More than 30 years have passed since Allen resided in the Washington, D.C., region and was a ball boy for his father, George Allen, the late Hall of Fame head coach who led the “Over the Hill Gang” Washington Redskins to an NFC Championship in 1972 and an appearance in Super Bowl VII.

“It’s exciting because of the history, the tradition, the comfort about coming home,” Allen said. “Everybody who knows me, knows that the principles of football in my mind are simple – it’s a team. It’s 53 men, the entire staff, everybody in the building going in the same direction for one common goal, and that’s to win.”

In May 2014, during an offseason in which Allen helped guide the franchise through a coaching transition and provided public leadership for the organization, the Redskins formally announced Allen as the team’s President and General Manager. In January 2015, Allen hired Scot McCloughan as the Redskins' General Manager.

Allen played a key role in identifying Jay Gruden as the 29th head coach in franchise history, citing Gruden’s passion for the game and passion for the Washington Redskins.

“So what we found is the guy that – I really come back to one of the greatest quotes I know in sports or life that former Washington Redskins coach Marv Levy, who is in the Hall of Fame, who said, ‘Where would you rather be than right here, right now?’” Allen said.

Early in his Redskins tenure, Allen oversaw the construction of Washington’s 2012 NFC East championship squad. The division championship was Allen’s sixth since 2000, marking the third different franchise (Oakland, Tampa Bay and Washington) he had helped lead to a division crown in that timeframe. Since 2000, only Allen and Rich McKay have guided multiple franchises to division titles as General Manager.

Aside from his management of the Redskins football operations, Allen has led an initiative to extend the Redskins’ outreach to their former players. Since the summer of 2010, he has been the impetus behind numerous alumni gatherings, which started with a barbeque coinciding with the team’s mini-camp. The Redskins welcomed more than 100 former players, coaches and staff members to Redskins Park, where they watched practice, reminisced with each other and interacted with current players and members of the organization.

“This is a great day for the Washington Redskins,” Allen said. “It’s a special time to bring back not only the legends of the game but also some of the architects of the Washington Redskins that our fans have loved over the decades. You get to see that they are great people and it’s wonderful to have them here.

“We owe them a great debt of gratitude for their accomplishments for building this game. Not just the three Super Bowl trophies, but the way they have represented themselves in the burgundy and gold. I think they’re going to give great lessons for our current players to follow. We’re fortunate that we have such great alumni.”

Last fall, Allen and the Redskins welcomed back Redskins Alumni for the team’s annual Homecoming Weekend, which culminated with Washington’s 30-24 overtime win against the San Diego Chargers. Not including staff and coaches, former players in attendance at various events during the weekend accounted for more than 600 seasons of Redskins service, 98 Super Bowl appearances and 56 Super Bowl wins. The team welcomed back 32 of the 80 Greatest Redskins, 19 Ring of Fame members and six Pro Football Hall of Famers as part of the celebration. In addition, the Redskins honored their 1987 Super Bowl XXII championship team at halftime as the squad celebrated its 25th anniversary.

In addition to his ongoing connection with Redskins Alumni, Allen is actively involved with the Redskins community outreach efforts. Allen has taken the time to personally connect with Redskins fans all over the world via one-on-one meetings, Redskins Rally events, fan forums, phone calls and e-mails to foster and strengthen the organization’s relationship with its fans.

In August of 2011, he assumed the role of President of the Board of the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation. Even before taking over these duties, Allen participated in many of the Foundation’s signature events, including the Redskins Alumni Golf Classic, where he serves as Chairman, the Redskins Easter Egg Hunt, the Fields for Tomorrow field dedication, the Mickey Steele Memorial Golf Outing, and, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Golf tournament, among others. Allen has also lent his time to helping other Redskins greats’ philanthropic works, including Doug Williams’ Washington Football Legends for Charity and Joe Gibbs’ Youth For Tomorrow.

Allen and his wife, Kiersten, have a son, George, and a daughter, Mikayla. Kiersten serves on the Moffitt Cancer Foundation Board of Directors, where she and Bruce have worked to aid in the Foundation’s mission to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.

Allen was drafted by the Baltimore Colts as a 12th-round selection in 1978 out of the University of Richmond. He played for the Spiders from 1974-77, earning All-ECAC and All-South Independent honors in his junior season, when he ranked 16th in the nation and broke a school punting record with a 42.9-yard average. He earned his degree in business marketing.

Allen’s late father George, who was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002, was Head Coach of the Redskins from 1971-77. He amassed a 67-30-1 record and an appearance in Super Bowl VII in seven seasons in Washington. George never had a losing campaign in 12 seasons as an NFL head coach including his seven years at the helm of the Redskins.

Like his father, who developed the original Redskins Park, Bruce helped spearhead the effort for facility improvements to provide the Redskins a state-of-the art team headquarters equipped with every necessary amenity and competitive advantage to support the football operation. Allen also played a key role in the team moving its annual training camp to Richmond, Va., beginning in 2013 at the world-class Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center. The brand new facility in Virginia’s capital city welcomed team-record crowds in excess of 165,000 people during its first camp, and also helped directly impact more than 5,000 children through youth programs in the community during the team’s stay.

Bruce’s brother George served as Virginia governor and as a U.S. Senator from Virginia. He also has two other siblings, Greg, a psychologist specializing in family counseling and Founder of Freedom4U in Southern California, and Jennifer Allen Richard, an author and contributor to the NFL Network.
