The Buffalo Bills are reportedly looking for a new wide receivers coach after Phil McGeoghan left to join the Los Angeles Chargers staff.

NFL Insider Adam Caplan first reported the news, adding that McGeoghan left the Bills for an opportunity to coach with long-time friend and former Bills’ interim head coach Anthony Lynn in L.A.


The Bills have yet to make any announcement regarding McGeoghan’s departure.

Alex Marvez of The Sporting News tweeted that the Bills already have two candidates they’ve interviewed to replace McGeoghan as their wide receivers coach.


Both Robiskie and Robinson have the experience and pedigree head coach Sean McDermott values in his assistants. Robiskie, 63, has been an NFL assistant for over 35 years, coaching for six different organizations. His first coaching job was with the Los Angeles Raiders in 1982.

Robinson, 65, has spent 27 years in the NFL with six different teams, as well as three years as a college assistant at Georgia Tech and two in the USFL with the Memphis Showboats, where he began his pro coaching career in 1984.

McGeoghan was hired by McDermott last offseason after spending 2016 as the wide receivers’ coach at East Carolina University. He was Bills’ second-round pick Zay Jones’ position coach there for Jones' senior season. Prior to that, McGeoghan spent three years with the Miami Dolphins.
