NFL coaching rumors: Doug Marrone linked to four job openings

New, comments

A year and a week after voluntarily leaving his Bills head coaching gig, Doug Marrone is back in the conversation as a potential new head coach for four different teams.

Former Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone is a busy man these days, reportedly linked to four head coaching openings around the NFL, just a bit more than a year after opting out of his deal in Buffalo. Three of the places look to be legitimate landing places.

Marrone is scheduled to interview with the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, per reports; he was a finalist for that job in 2013 before choosing the Bills, and could be a front-runner there now. He'd be replacing Mike Pettine, the former Bills defensive coordinator who worked under Marrone for one season in 2013.

Then, on Friday, Marrone is scheduled to sit down with the Miami Dolphins to discuss their head coaching opening. Marrone is just one of many names that have been linked to that job, but don't let your daydreams of Rex Ryan's Bills sweeping Marrone's Dolphins on a yearly basis die out just yet.

No interview has yet been set between Marrone and the New York Giants, but the team that just moved on from Tom Coughlin reportedly has him on their early list of candidates. That may not be the case with the Philadelphia Eagles; ESPN had reported that Marrone was on their list, but now a contradictory report exists.

It's the Browns, Dolphins, and Giants, then, for the two-year Bills coach that went 15-17 before voluntarily leaving that gig.
