The Bills have settled on a new wide receivers coach.

A day after the Chargers announced that Phil McGeoghan left the Bills to take the same job in Los Angeles, the Bills announced that they have hired Terry Robiskie to fill the slot. A report on Tuesday indicated Jimmy Robinson also interviewed for the job.

Robiskie brings a lot of experience with him to Buffalo. He’s been coaching in the NFL for the last 36 season and spent the last two seasons as the offensive coordinator in Tennessee. Robiskie has been the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach for several other teams and served two stints — Washington in 2000, Cleveland in 2004 — as an interim head coach.

The Bills made big changes at receiver last year with Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins leaving the team, Zay Jones arriving in the second round of the draft and Kelvin Benjamin coming to the team during the season in a trade with Carolina. There will likely be more changes this offseason with Jordan Matthews and Deonte Thompson headed for free agency.

  1. I have never seen so many retread coaches hired than this year. The losers keep getting good jobs. Go figure.

  2. They could use a veteran coach given the level of youth on the team. Hes not calling plays just developing WR, hes stuck around for decades doing that. Retread maybe but I think its a good hire if hes just coaching the WR

  3. Teddy is the reason Mike Mularky is unemployed. interesting he gets a job before Mike. Are 90% of the media that said the Titans made a mistake firing Mularky surprised he doesn’t have a job yet?

    ==================================================================================
    Good thing Terry didn’t have anything to do with Mularky being fired. But that Teddy guy, he’s a coach killer!

    Talk about a retread, this guy’s been hired and fired a million times.
    =========================================================================================================A million times? Really? If you know anything at all about professional football, when the HC gets fired, usually most of the assistants either get fired or their contracts expire. So it’s not quite as bad as you’re insinuating. I mean, reading your post, he would not have gotten opportunity #999,999.
    He’s been good enough to stay in the NFL for THIRTY-SIX YEARS! Don’t discredit the man.

  6. Great guy and back in his comfort zone as a WR coach.
    Was totally in over his head as an OC in TN.
    Good hire for BUFF, as long as he stays as WR coach only.

  7. If you think retread coaches are new this year, you haven’t been paying attention. It’s like a lifetime fraternity once you are in. How else do people get fired or forced into “retirement” when their teams are terrible and then get hired for coordinator positions the next week?
