Doug Marrone has agreed to leave Syracuse and become the next head coach of the Buffalo Bills.
Before Buffalo and Doug Marrone agreed to a deal early this morning, the Bills interviewed former Bears HC Lovie Smith on Saturday.
Marrone is the Head Coach at Syracuse University and has done a tremendous job of turning around a program that had plummeted to the bottom of the Big East.
Marrone led the Orange to an 8-5 record this season and a bowl game victory over West Virginia. Marrone is considered an up and coming coach and a good offensive mind. He does have NFL experience, having served as the New Orleans Saints Offensive Coordinator under Sean Payton from2006-2008 and the NY Jets O-Line coach under Herm Edwards from 2002-2005.
