Andre Reed used his knowledge, along with considerable talent, to build a Hall-0f-Fame career as a wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills.
Now, he gets to impart that knowledge on Sammy Watkins and the rest of the Bills' current group of receivers.
Reed has accepted a Walsh coaching internship -- named after Hall-of-Fame NFL coach Bill Walsh -- with the Bills this preseason, the agency that represents him announced Tuesday.
"I am honored and proud to serve the Walsh Coaching Internship with my home team, the Bills in Buffalo, N.Y.," Reed said in a statement released by Bombastic Industries Group in New York. "We are going to do the work and put it in the dirt, and I hope I can help get these guys ready for a big year."
In the past three years, Reed, whose long-term goal is to land a full-time coaching position in the NFL, has been a Walsh coaching intern with the Kansas City Chiefs and has coached the wide receivers in the NFL Players Association Bowl college all-star game.
Reed, who spent 15 seasons with the Bills, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last summer.
