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.
