Stan Hixon Leaving Buffalo Bills For Penn State, Per Report

A report from Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News indicates that Buffalo Bills wide receivers coach Stan Hixon has accepted a job on the in-process Penn State football staff. Hixon will join the offensive staff of new head coach Bill O'Brien. The two worked together in the mid-'90s, according to Gaughan's report.

Hixon has been the Bills wide receivers coach since Chan Gailey was hired in 2010. He becomes the second Bills offensive assistant to leave the team for another job in the last week, as quarterbacks coach George Cortez also left to become head coach of the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Hixon has been credited with bringing along Stevie Johnson during his first two seasons as a starter, becoming the first receiver in Bills history to have back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. He also worked with undrafted rookies David Nelson and Donald Jones, who have made significant contributions to the team. In 2011, he was also able to help Ruvell Martin and Derek Hagan in their transition to the Bills as street free agents.
