Sean McDermott has reportedly filled one of the few remaining job openings on his coaching staff with the Buffalo Bills.
According to a report from ESPN's Adam Caplan, McDermott will hire Phil McGeoghan as wide receivers coach. McGeoghan, who spent last season at East Carolina University, replaces Sanjay Lal, who was hired by the Indinapolis Colts last week. During his lone season with the Pirates, McGeoghan helped receiver Isaiah “Zay” Jones break the NCAA career record for catches (399) and set an ECU single-season record for receptions (158).
Prior to coaching at ECU, McGeoghan spent four years with the Miami Dolphins, serving as an assistant wide receivers coach from 2012 through November 2015, when he earned a promotion to wide receivers coach for the remainder of that season. McGeoghan helped Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry set a single-season franchise record with 110 catches in 2015.
Prior to joining the Dolphins, McGeoghan spent three seasons as wide receivers coach at the University of South Florida. His coaching career started at his alma mater, Maine, in 2007 as wide receivers and tight ends coach. As a player, McGeoghan ended his college career fourth in career receiving yards and fifth in career receptions for the Black Bears. He spent time with four NFL teams, as well as playing in NFL Europe.
