REDSKINS NAME IKE HILLIARD AS WIDE RECEIVERS COACH

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have named Ike Hilliard as Wide Receivers Coach.

Hilliard returns to the Redskins after having coached the team’s wide receivers during Washington’s NFC East championship campaign in 2012. Last season, Hilliard served as wide receivers coach for the Buffalo Bills, helping mold a young group that included rookie second-round pick Robert Woods (40 receptions for 587 yards with three touchdowns) and rookie third-round pick Marquise Goodwin (17 receptions for 283 yards with three touchdowns).

Hilliard boasts 15 seasons of NFL experience, including 12 seasons as a wide receiver. Prior to his first stint in Washington, he served as the assistant wide receivers coach for the Miami Dolphins after two seasons coaching for the Florida Tuskers of the United Football League. Hilliard worked as a volunteer coach with the Tuskers in 2009 under current Redskins Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett, who served as the team’s head coach. Hilliard was elevated to the position of Receivers Coach for 2010 under current Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden.

A first round selection in the 1997 NFL Draft (No. 7 overall), Hilliard played 12 combined seasons for the New York Giants (1997-2004) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2005-08). In 161 career games with 106 starts, Hilliard caught 546 passes for 6,397 yards and 35 touchdowns.

Hilliard played collegiately at the University of Florida from 1994-96, catching 126 passes for 2,214 yards and 26 touchdowns. He earned first-team All-SEC and All-America honors as a junior and, in the final game of the season, finished with seven catches for 150 yards and three touchdowns in leading the Gators to a 52-20 Sugar Bowl win to secure the school’s first national championship.

Hilliard, 37, is a native of Patterson, La.

Florida Tuskers?

That is the greatest UFL football team in the history of UFL football! They were coached by Jim Haslett and he was Coach of the Year in their inaugural season!

Another slap to Mike and Kyle.

A guy they send packing Gruden brings right back.

I don't know if Hilliard is a great coach or not, but I think it's addition by subtraction with the dismissal of Slowik and Keith Burns.
