Bills add three to coaching staff, including Hilliard

Orchard Park, NY (Sports Network) - The Buffalo Bills added three coaches to the team's staff Thursday, in former 12-year NFL veteran Ike Hilliard, who will lead the wide receivers corps, John Anselmo as a special teams assistant and Hal Luther as an assistant strength and conditioning coach.

Hilliard, who was drafted seventh overall in the 1997 NFL Draft by the New York Giants, joins the Bills after a stint last season as the Washington Redskins' wide receivers coach. In 2011, his first year in the league as a coach, Hilliard served as an assistant wide receivers coach for the Miami Dolphins.

Anselmo comes to Buffalo as a familiar face to the club's new head coach, Doug Marrone, after spending four years with him at Syracuse as a secondary coach and assistant head coach for the 2011-12 seasons.

Luther joins the Bills after spending the previous 13 years at Syracuse, most recently, from 2007-12 as the director of strength and conditioning.
