Former New York Giants wide receiver Ike Hilliard has been hired as the new receivers coach at Auburn, the school announced.

Hilliard, 45, was the Giants’ first-round draft pick out of Florida in 1997 (No. 7 overall) and played eight seasons in blue, catching 368 passes for 4,630 yards and 27 touchdowns. He is sixth all-time in receptions for the Giants and tenth in receiving yardage.

In 2005, Hilliard moved on to Tampa Bay for four seasons before retiring and heading into coaching. He has coached receivers professionally since 2009 and has made stops in Miami, Washington, Buffalo and, most recently, Pittsburgh.

Hilliard was a three-time SEC champion at Florida and a member of the Giants’ team that lost Super Bowl XXXV to the Baltimore Ravens in 2001.
