The Buffalo Bills continue to add to their coaching staff.

The team recently announced four additions to head coach Doug Marrone’s staff. The new hires include:

Ike Hilliard (wide receivers): Hilliard spent 12 years as a receiver in the NFL, playing with the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. During his time in the NFL, Hilliard played in 161 games, had 546 receptions for 6,397 yards and scored 35 touchdowns. Since retiring from the NFL, he has spent time coaching wide receivers with the Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins.

Pat Morris (offensive line): 2013 will mark Morris's sixteenth season coaching in the NFL. He has worked with the San Francisco 49ers, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As a coach, Morris has led the league's top offensive line unit several times and his lines have locked for a 1,000-yard rusher 11 times. Morris has also coached on several college teams.

John Anselmo (special teams assistant): Anselmo spent the last four years coaching under Marrone at Syracuse University, where he coached the team’s secondary and linebackers. Prior to that, Anselmo was head coach at Nassau Community College, where he amassed a record of 152-27 and led the team to 12 Junior College Bowl appearances. He also spent several years at Georgia Tech’s secondary coach.

Hal Luther (assistant strength and conditioning): Like Anselmo, Luther also spent time at Syracuse University, where he was the football team’s director of strength and conditioning. He also spent time as a coach with several college teams.

The team also recently announced that offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett will also serve as the team’s quarterback coach.

 Hilliard, Anselmo, Morris and Luther are newest coaches to join the team. The Bills announced the addition of 10 other coaches on Tuesday.
