Stan Hixon enters his first season with the Houston Texans in 2014, where he will serve as wide receivers coach. Hixon came to Houston from Penn State, where he served as assistant head coach and wide receivers coach for from 2012-13 after eight seasons in the NFL.

In his time at Penn State, Hixon coached Allen Robinson to two of the most prolific seasons for a wide receiver in school history as Robinson set school records with 97 receptions and 1,432 yards during the 2013 season. Robinson finished his three-year career at Penn State ranked second in career receptions (177) and third in receiving yardage (2,474) despite only having three catches for 29 yards in the season prior to Hixson’s arrival.

Robinson was the first player since 1985 to lead the Big Ten in receptions and receiving yardage in consecutive seasons. Robinson's combined 174 receptions and 2,445 receiving yards the past two years both ranked third Big Ten history for consecutive seasons.

Hixon spent the 2010 and 2011 seasons as wide receivers coach of the Buffalo Bills. In 2010, he helped Stevie Johnson breakout on the NFL scene, posting career highs and leading the Bills in receptions (82), receiving yards (1,073), and touchdowns (10) and was the fourth wide receiver to post 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in a season in Bills history. 

In Washington he guided a veteran unit, led by Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El.  Randle El's four receiving touchdowns in 2009 set a career high.

Under Hixon’s tutelage in 2008, WR Santana Moss had 79 receptions for 1,044 yards and six touchdowns.  This marked the third 1,000 yard receiving season of Moss's career, and his second with 75 or more catches. Additionally in 2008, WR Antwaan Randle El recorded 53 receptions for 593 yards and four touchdowns.

Hixon guided Moss to a breakout season in 2005 that ended with his first trip to the Pro Bowl.  Moss set a new Redskins franchise record with 1,483 receiving yards on the season. Moss also led the team in receptions (84) and average yards per catch (17.7) and was second with nine touchdowns. He finished second in the NFL in receiving yards and 10th in receptions.  Moss was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week twice after remarkable performances at Dallas (five catches, 159 yards, two TDs) and home against the New York Giants (five catches, 160 yards, three TDs).

Prior to joining the Redskins, Hixon coached four years at LSU (2000-03), where he coached eight players at the college level that went on to careers in the NFL. He served as associate head coach in addition to wide receivers coach and was part of the Tigers’ 2003 NCAA National Championship team. Under Hixon’s guidance, three Tigers had 1,000-yard receiving season and he had a player named All-SEC three times.

In 2001, Hixon coached Josh Reed to one of the most dominating seasons ever by a receiver in SEC history. Reed caught a school-record 94 passes for an SEC-record 1,740 yards and seven touchdowns. He was named an All-American and won the Fred Biletnikoff Award, given to college football’s top wide receiver. Reed completed his three-year college career, two of which were coached by Hixon, with a then-SEC record 3,001 receiving yards on 167 receptions.

Prior to LSU, Hixon coached wide receivers at Georgia Tech (1995-99), developing a pair of All-ACC receivers in Campbell and White. He previously coached running backs for two seasons at Wake Forest (1993-94).

Hixon served as wide receivers coach at South Carolina (1989-92), producing All-Americans Brooks and Miller, and at Appalachian State (1983-88). He began his college coaching career overseeing running backs at Morehead State (1980-82).

Hixon was a standout receiver at Iowa State. He starred in the Peach Bowl in 1977 and the Hall of Fame Bowl in 1978. A native of Lakeland, Fla., he earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Iowa State and earned his master’s degree at Morehead State. Hixon and his wife, Rebecca, have three children: son Drew and daughters Adele and Avis.
