WR Coach Stan Hixon Leaving to Take a Spot at Penn State

Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports that Bills wide receivers coach Stan Hixon has accepted a coaching position on Bill O’Brien’s staff at Penn State.

Hixon and O’Brien coached with one another at Georgia Tech from 1995-99.

As Gaughan notes, several late-round or undrafted receivers have emerged as quality players for the Bills the last two seasons. 2008 seventh-round pick Stevie Johnson has caught 158 passes for 2,077 yards and 17 touchdowns the last two seasons, while undrafted David Nelson has 92 receptions for 1,011 yards and eight touchdowns in his first two seasons in the NFL.

Bills head coach Chan Gailey lost quarterbacks coach George Cortez to the CFL over the weekend.
