Buffalo Bills Hire Doug Marrone As Next Head Coach

Rich Schultz

According to reports, Syracuse University head coach Doug Marrone has been hired as the next head coach of the Buffalo Bills. The Bills fired Chan Gailey, and their entire coaching staff, last Monday.

According to multiple media reports, the Buffalo Bills have hired Syracuse University head coach Doug Marrone to be the Bills next head coach. According to one report, the deal is not yet complete, but, barring any last minute breakdowns, the Bills have found their man, less than a week after firing Chan Gailey.

Marrone has been a coach at the college and NFL levels for 21 years, including stops as the New York Jets offensive line coach (2002-2005) and the New Orleans Saints offensive coordinator (2006-2008). He also had a brief playing career in the NFL as a guard, spending one year with the Miami Dolphins (1987) and one year with the Saints (1989). He has been the head coach at Syracuse since 2009.

Marrone had been linked to head coach openings with the Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles, and San Diego Chargers, along with the Bills.
