Potential candidates to replace fired Bills WRs coach Terry Robiskie

The Buffalo Bills will need a new wide receivers coach after separating with Terry Robiskie. Here’s a list of names.

With the Buffalo Bills evaluating staff this week, wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie has been let go, per reports. To help with all of the fan prognostications, Buffalo Rumblings has a list of potential coaching candidates to fill the shoes vacated by Robiskie.

Potential coaches run the gamut of up-and-comers to venerable football sages and everything in between. Some might need to be poached (especially those listed as being in the college ranks). Where available, direct connections to Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott or offensive coordinator Brian Daboll are listed. Here you go Rumblers, feel free to debate or add additional candidates in the comments.
