Bills hire 3 more assistants, including Hilliard

Doug Marrone has hired three more assistants to his new Buffalo
Bills staff, including Ike Hilliard taking over as receivers
coach.

Hilliard comes to Buffalo after spending the past two seasons
coaching receivers with the Washington Redskins. He’s a former NFL
receiver who split 12 seasons between the New York Giants and Tampa
Bay.

The Bills also hired John Anselmo to work as a special teams
assistant. He previously worked under Marrone at Syracuse.

Hal Luther, also from Syracuse, was hired as assistant strength
and conditioning coach.

The team announced Thursday that offensive coordinator Nathaniel
Hackett will also double as quarterbacks coach.

Including Hackett, the Bills staff now features seven of
Marrone’s former assistants at Syracuse, where he went 25-25 over
four seasons.
