ASHBURN, Va. -- Ike Hilliard is returning to the Washington Redskins as receivers coach.

Hilliard was hired Monday as the latest addition to new coach Jay Gruden's staff.

Hilliard coached the Redskins' receivers during the 2012 season, then took the same job with the Buffalo Bills this season.

Hilliard has previous connections with Gruden. Hilliard was a volunteer coach with the UFL's Florida Tuskers in 2009 when Gruden was the offensive co-ordinator. Hilliard was then promoted to receivers coach in 2010 after Gruden became the Tuskers' head coach.

Hilliard also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2005-08, when Gruden was an assistant coach for the team.

Hilliard was the No. 7 overall pick in the 1997 draft and played 12 NFL seasons with the New York Giants and Buccaneers.
