ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone says he has had a cancerous mole removed following a recent doctor's visit, and adds it will not have any effect on his ability to continue coaching.
Marrone revealed he had cancer through a statement released by the team late Tuesday night. Marrone said the only follow-up requirement is to have his moles checked every three months, adding: ''that basically is the end of the story.''
Marrone is entering his second year on the job following the team's 6-10 finish last year.
The news comes at a difficult time for the Bills. Owner and founder Ralph Wilson died last month, and Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is currently being treated for the recurrence of sinus cancer.
