Last week Jay Gruden said they wanted to make Ike Hilliard their wide receivers coach. Today, it became official.

The team announced today that Hilliard will return to the job he held in 2012. Hilliard left at the end of the year to coach the wide receivers with the Bills. Right after the end of the season Buffalo coach Doug Marrone announced that Hilliard was leaving the staff due to “philosophical differences”.

Hilliard played wide receiver in the NFL for 15 years before getting into coaching. He got his start with Gruden and current defensive coordinator Jim Haslett with the Florida Tuskers of UFL. From there it was a year as an assistant receivers coach with the Dolphins before he moved to Washington in 2012.
