After spending the past six seasons in the NFC East with the Washington Redskins, former New York Giants wide receiver Ike Hilliard will be taking his coaching talents to the AFC.

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced on Tuesday that they have hired Hilliard to become their next wide receivers coach.

A first-round pick of the Giants in the 1997 NFL Draft, Hilliard spent the first eight seasons of his career in East Rutherford before moving onto the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2005 until his retirement following the 2008 season.

In 98 career games (92 starts) with the Giants, Hilliard hauled in 368 receptions for 4,630 yards and 27 touchdowns, adding 120 yards on 14 rushes.

Hilliard’s best season came in 1999 when he fell just four yards short of the 1,000-yard mark, but did manage to eclipse 1,000 yards from scrimmage.

Following his retirement in 2008, Hilliard joined the Florida Tuskers (later known as the Virginia Destroyers) of the United Football League (UFL) as their wide receivers coach. He remained there for two seasons before being hired as the assistant wide receivers coach of the Miami Dolphins.

In 2012, Hilliard had his first stint as wide receivers coach of the Redskins before joining the Buffalo Bills in 2013 and then returning to Washington for the aforementioned six-year stint.
