Report: Bills WR coach Phil McGeoghan makes lateral move to Chargers
The Buffalo Bills wide receiver room had a below average year and their coach has decided to take his talents elsewhere.
According to ESPN, Buffalo wide receiver coach Phil McGeoghan has accepted the same position with the Los Angeles Chargers.
McGeoghan has a previous history working with former Bills interim head coach and current Chargers head coach, Anthony Lynn.
With McGeoghan still under contract in Buffalo, the team had to allow him to make the move, which Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott & Co. reportedly did allow. McGeoghan, who spent the season prior to joining the Bills at East Carolina coaching eventual second-round pick of the Bills Zay Jones, to leaves Buffalo after one season.
Buffalo wide receivers struggled to separate from defenders throughout the 2017 season. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, the Bills ranked dead-last in that stat.
In addition to McGeoghan’s departure, Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reported that Terry Robiskie, the Titans’ former offensive coordinator, and Jimmy Robinson, a former wide receiver coach for Dallas , Green Bay , New Orleans , Indianapolis, and New York Giants, have already interviewed for McGeoghan’s vacant position.
