Stan Hixon (born July 24, 1957) is an American football coach and former player. He was the wide receiver coach for the Washington Redskins of the National Football League (NFL) for six years,[1] until January 2010, when his contract was not renewed after the Redskins hired new head coach Mike Shanahan. He was also wide receiver coach under Chan Gailey for the Buffalo Bills.[2] In 2013 Hixon was the wide receivers coach under Bill O'Brien for Penn State, and was named the "mystery assistant" by one local paper because he rarely talks to the media, and thus little is known about him.[3] Hixon then moved to Houston to be the Texans wide receivers coach in 2014, after O'Brien was hired to be the head coach of the Texans.
