The Bills have parted ways with special teams coordinator Danny Crossman, a source confirmed Thursday.

The Bills have fired wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie, a source confirmed Wednesday. Robiskie was hired last offseason after the Bills allowed 2017 receivers coach Phil McGeoghan to join the Chargers. Although the Bills saw promise in young receivers such as undrafted rookie Robert Foster in 2018, the position as a whole was a weak spot.

The Bills fired offensive line coach Juan Castillo, a source confirmed Wednesday. Castillo was hired before the 2017 season by coach Sean McDermott, but the offensive line was a problem area during the 2018 season after the retirements of Richie Incognito and Eric Wood. Both McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane said Monday the group was not "in sync" this season. CBS Sports first reported Castillo's firing.
