Doug Marrone Rumors: Interview With Buffalo Bills Imminent, Per Report

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone "looks poised to go pro," per one report. He's interviewed with just two teams about their head coaching vacancies: the Cleveland Browns and the Buffalo Bills.

It had previously been reported that the Buffalo Bills were interested in interviewing Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone for their head coaching vacancy, but Marrone's name had gotten lost in the shuffle of late as the Bills lined up interviews with five other candidates.

No more: Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Marrone, having already completed an interview with the Cleveland Browns, will now sit down with Bills brass - perhaps as soon as today. Cabot also notes that Marrone "looks poised to go pro." In addition to Buffalo and Cleveland, Marrone has also reportedly drawn interest from the Philadelphia Eagles.

Marrone, 48, has been the head coach at Syracuse for the last four years. He inherited one of the worst programs in Division I from Greg Robinson and has gone 25-25 since, with two bowl wins. He's also turned quarterback Ryan Nassib into one of the better prospects available at that position in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Prior to his coaching stint at Syracuse, Marrone spent seven years as an assistant in the NFL. Between 2002 and 2005, he was the offensive line coach for the New York Jets. In 2006, he was hired by Sean Payton as the offensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints, a job he vacated in 2009 to coach in Syracuse.

Marrone is the sixth coaching candidate to have interviewed, or have an interview scheduled, with the Bills. His name is added to a list that already includes the following names: Chip Kelly, Ken Whisenhunt, Ray Horton, Lovie Smith and Mike McCoy.
