The Bills have added a two-time Pro Bowler as their new wide receivers coach.

The club announced Thursday it had hired Syracuse wide receivers coach Rob Moore to the same position on Doug Marrone’s coaching staff.

Moore had been Syracuse’s wide receivers coach for the last four seasons (2010-2013), the first three of which were spent working with Marrone, who became Buffalo’s coach last offseason.

Moore replaces Ike Hilliard, who is now the Redskins’ wide receivers coach.

The 45-year-old Moore played 10 NFL seasons, with stints with the Jets (1990-1994) and Cardinals (1995-1999). He made the Pro Bowl in 1994 and 1997. In the latter season, he led the NFL in receiving yards (1,584).

    Marrone is sticking with familiarity rather than experience… Not sure if that will end up benefiting the team or hurt them.

    It shouldn’t be a surprise to Bills fans that Marrone is hiring another Syracuse coach instead of someone with NFL coaching experience.

    Might be a great hire. Just curious why Marrone didn’t bring him along in the first place.

    Better than Ike Hilliard. I love the hire, as a Bills fan. He’s got a good group to work with.

    Marrone will be jedged on his willingness to fire all of his old college buddies. If he can’t do that he won’t make it an an NFL coach
