There will be yet another change to the Baltimore coaching staff.

The Bills have hired Ravens wide receivers coach Jim Hostler as senior offensive assistant, the club announced Wednesday.

Hostler coached the Ravens’ wide receivers for the last six seasons. He interviewed for the Ravens’ offensive coordinator role in January, but the club elected to hire former Texans head coach Gary Kubiak for the job.

Before joining the Ravens, Hostler held assistant coaching roles with the 49ers (2005-2007), Jets (2003-2004), Saints (2001-2002) and Chiefs (2000). He was the 49ers’ offensive coordinator in 2007, and he has coached NFL quarterbacks and wide receivers at multiple stops in his career.

The Ravens have made significant changes to their coaching staff on offense since season’s end, with the addition of Kubiak most notable. Kubiak replaced Jim Caldwell, who was hired as the Lions’ head coach.
