ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Doug Marrone is leaving Syracuse to become the Buffalo Bills' new coach, according to several reports.
Citing league sources, ESPN.com first reported early Sunday that Marrone was to take over the Bills. The Bills have not confirmed the report. Messages left with Syracuse officials and Marrone's agent, Jimmy Sexton, have not been returned.
Marrone will replace Chan Gailey, who was fired Monday, a day after the Bills closed their second consecutive season with a 6-10 record. The 48-year-old Marrone went 25-25 in four seasons at Syracuse, turning around a program that had gone 26-57 over the previous seven years.
The Syracuse job was Marrone's first as a head coach. He has seven years of NFL experience as an assistant with New Orleans and the New York Jets.
