FAIRFAX, Va. — Pro Football Hall of Famer Darrell Green has joined George Mason’s athletics department.

Green, a four-time All-Pro cornerback for the Washington Redskins, was hired as associate athletic director/special assistant to the AD. According to the school, Green will work with the department’s senior leadership on internal and external relationships, help with fundraising and communicate to the community.

Athletic director Brad Edwards said, “You would be hard pressed to find a more accomplished athlete and role model, an advocate for education and a community and civic leader all rolled into one individual than Darrell Green.”

The 56-year-old from Houston was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2008 after spending 20 seasons with the Redskins. He holds the Washington franchise record for interceptions and games played.
