Redskins senior vice president of communications Tony Wyllie is leaving the organization after nearly 10 years to take a job with the Special Olympics. 

Wyllie was owner Dan Snyder’s longest-tenured public relations official. He joined Washington in 2010, overseeing a number of high-profile controversies from the conflict between Mike Shanahan and Robert Griffin III, the firing of former general manager Scot McCloughan and the signing of linebacker Reuben Foster in light of a domestic violence arrest.

Wyllie’s signature moment, however, is arguably a confrontation with a reporter after the Redskins’ win on “Monday Night Football” in 2014 when he yelled “No means no!”and pulled Colt McCoy away from an interview. 

Wyllie’s departure is the latest exit within the Redskins’ organization. They’ve had at least 40 employees leave the team since president of business operations Brian Lafemina was fired in December, eight months after being hired.
