Buffalo Bills hire Terry Robiskie as wide receivers coach

New, comments

Buffalo’s coaching staff adds 36 years of experience.

Tuesday evening, news broke that Buffalo Bills wide receivers coach Phil McGeoghan had mutually agreed to part ways with the team, heading to Los Angeles to join Anthony Lynn’s coaching staff in the same position. The backfill was swift, as not even 24 hours had passed before the team announced it had hired his successor: former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie.

Robiskie is a 36-year veteran of NFL coaching, who first broke into the league in 1982 as an assistant special teams coach. He spent the last two seasons as Tennessee’s offensive coordinator under Mike Mularkey, but his contract wasn’t renewed when the team moved on to new head coach Mike Vraebel in the offseason. Before that, he spent eight years coaching wide receivers for the Atlanta Falcons. In Atlanta, he helped Roddy White make 4 straight Pro Bowls & Julio Jones make his first three all-star games.

During his time in the NFL, Robiskie has held a multitude of roles: wide receivers coach, passing game coordinator, and even a few short stints as an interim head coach. He fits the mold of Sean McDermott’s staff, which is filled to the brim with experienced veterans. Given his experience, he’ll probably be a sounding board for new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll as they develop the playbook and coaching techniques for the upcoming season.
