The Buffalo Bills have hired Jim Hostler to work as a senior offensive assistant coach.

Hostler has 14 years of NFL coaching experience, including the past six as Baltimore's receivers coach. He also spent three seasons as an assistant in San Francisco, including 2007 as the 49ers offensive coordinator.

Hostler also spent time as an assistant with the New York Jets, New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs.

It was in New York, from 2003-04, when Hostler worked on the same staff as Bills coach Doug Marrone. Hostler was the receivers/quarterbacks coach for the Jets, while Marrone coached the offensive line.

Marrone had an opening on his staff at receivers coach after Ike Hilliard was fired on Dec. 30.
