The Bills have interviewed former Titans offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie for their now vacant wide receivers position, according to Alex Marvez of the Sporting News (Twitter link). Longtime NFL wide receivers coach Jimmy Robinson has also met with Buffalo, per Marvez.
Under Robiskie, the 2017 Titans offense ranked 13th in yards, 17th in points, and 18th in DVOA. But the club’s play-calling and handling of mobile quarterback Marcus Mariota was often questioned, as Robiskie & Co. seemingly failed to put the former No. 2 overall pick in the best situations. Tennessee finished just 28th in situation neutral offensive pace, a notably slow speed given Mariota’s collegiate success in Chip Kelly’s quick-game offense.
The 63-year-old Robiskie has been since an NFL coach since 1982, and wide receivers have been his calling card. He’s led wideouts in Washington, Cleveland, Miami, and Atlanta over the past 30 years, and experienced great success with the Falcons, with whom he coached stars such as Roddy White and Julio Jones.
Robinson’s coaching career dates back almost as far as Robiskie’s, but the 65-year-old has been out of the league for the past two seasons. After stops with Atlanta, Indianapolis, New York, New Orleans, and Green Bay, Robinson spent the 2011-15 campaigns with the Cowboys before transitioning into a consultant role.
The Bills are seeking to replace former wide receivers coach Phil McGeoghan, who today took the same position with the Chargers. McGeoghan and Buffalo reached a “mutual decision” to let him out of his contract, tweets Mike Rodak of ESPN.com.
