At a press conference in Buffalo on Monday it was officially announced that Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone will be the new Head Coach of the Buffalo Bills. Doug Marrone spent four seasons with the Syracuse Orange as their head coach and is noted for building their program back up from being one of the worst programs in a BCS conference. Some are calling him a future Bill Parcells.
Bills fans are hopeful due to the fact that Coach Marrone amassed a 25-25 record, culminating with an 8-5 showing last year. He is an alumnus of Syracuse, having played offensive line for the university. Coach Marrone spent three seasons as the offensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints, including the year the won the Superbowl. So the search is over. It's Doug Marrone who was one of five men that the Bills interviewed for the job. They also spoke with former Arizona head coach Ken Whisenhunt, Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton, Oregon head coach Chip Kelly and former Chicago head coach Lovie Smith. Hopefully they'll make the play-offs next year. Speaking of which, who do you think will come out on top this weekend? Find out what the experts predict.
