The Buffalo Bills will not be bringing back wide receiver coach Terry Robiskie for a second season, per a report from SiriusXM’s Alex Marvez. Robiskie, formerly the offensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans, joined the Bills in 2018 when Buffalo parted ways with receiver coach Phil McGeoghan.
In his single season with the team, the Buffalo passing attack was one of the league’s worst. The Bills ranked 31st in net yards per attempt and in passing yards, and finished with an NFL-worst 13:23 TD:INT ratio. Buffalo’s leading receiver, Zay Jones, finished 58th in the NFL with 56 receptions and 61st with 652 yards.
Robiskie’s tenure did see positive growth from young players like Robert Foster. The undrafted speedster from Alabama developed into Buffalo’s second-leading receiver as a rookie, finishing the season with 27 catches for 541 yards and three touchdowns. More glaring than the plusses were the abysmal contributions from Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes, ostensibly the starters at the beginning of the season. The duo combined for 35 catches, 511 yards, and a touchdown on 85 targets, an abysmal 41% catch rate. They would later be cut in favor of the youth movement.
Robiskie joins offensive line coach Juan Castillo, who was also reportedly fired at the end of the season. Evidently, the Bills are re-establishing their whole offensive identity heading into Josh Allen’s second season.
