FAIRFAX, Va. — Former Washington Redskins safety Brad Edwards is the new athletic director at George Mason.

The school announced Monday that Edwards will replace Tom O’Connor, who is retiring July 1.

Edwards has been athletic director at Jacksonville since 2012. He has also been the AD at Newberry College and an assistant AD at South Carolina.

Edwards played nine seasons in the NFL, including four with the Washington Redskins. He was the defensive co-captain of the Redskins team that won the Super Bowl in the 1991 season.

O’Connor announced in March he was retiring after 20 years at GMU.
