Buffalo Bills To Hire Doug Marrone As New Coach
Several media sources are reporting that the Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms with coach Doug Marrone.
Rumors circulated that Marrone was on the radar of several teams who had fired their coaches on the NFL’s Black Monday. The now ex-Syracuse coach had also interviewed with the Cleveland Browns earlier this week.
In four seasons with the Orange, Marrone helped turn the program’s struggles around – finishing with a 25-25 record during his tenure – including this season’s 8-5 finish.
He has pro experience as well – four years as an offensive line coach with the New York Jets and three more as offensive coordinator with the New Orleans Saints, according to Kareem Copeland of NFL.com.
The Bills parted ways with coach Chan Gailey after three season in Buffalo with the team winning just one-third of their games (16-32) during his tenure.
