When Sean McDermott assembled his first coaching staff, he went heavy on experience.
His most recent hire is the heaviest of them all.
The Bills announced Wednesday Terry Robiskie will take over as the team’s wide receivers coach. He replaces Phil McGeoghan who is departing for the same job with the Chargers.
Robiskie began his NFL career in 1982–before every player on the Bills roster was born.
The last two seasons, Robiskie was the offensive coordinator under Mike Mularkey in Tennessee. They were his 35th and 36th in the NFL.
It was the third time Robiskie has held the offensive coordinator title. He’s also been an interim head coach with Washington in 2000 and Cleveland in 2004. He went 2-6 combined.
Robiskie has coached the passing game since 1989. This season will be his 30th as either offensive coordinator, passing game coordinator or wide receivers coach.
Before the stint in with the Titans, Robiskie coached the wideouts in Atlanta for eight straight years. He was the position coach for Julio Jones during the star receiver’s first five seasons in the league.
The Bills also announced three other hires on Wednesday.
Nate Breske is the new head athletic trainer. He takes the position left open when Bud Carpenter retired after 33 years with the Bills.
Breske was the head trainer for the last three seasons in Chicago. He was an assistant athletic trainer the seven seasons before that in San Francisco.
Luis Guilamo is the Bills new director of analytics. He was a consultant for the Bills and the Miami Marlins in 2017.
Jeff Mueller is the new video director.
