Playing career

Marrone was born in the Bronx.[2] He was a three-year letterman at Syracuse University, playing from 1983-1985 on the offensive line; he returned to graduate from the university in 1991.[3] He played with the Miami Dolphins in 1987 and the New Orleans Saints in 1989, and was with the London Monarchs of the World League in 1991.

Coaching career

Syracuse University

On December 11, 2008, he was chosen as Syracuse University's head football coach after the 2008 season by athletic director Daryl Gross.[4] He is the first Syracuse alumnus to serve as head football coach since New Orleans Saints as an offensive coordinator from 2006 to 2008.

Reportedly, alumni such as Tim Green and Floyd Little wanted Marrone from the moment Robinson was fired, and when interviewed by Green, it was learned that Marrone had kept a folder of current high school players in the Syracuse area to get a head start in recruiting.[5][6][7]

In Marrone's first season the Orange finished with 4 wins, one more than the previous year. The Orange doubled that output the following season. The 8 wins in 2010 was the most since 2001 for the Orange. The 2010 season was highlighted with a victory over Kansas State team and a victory in the first ever Pinstripe Bowl in New York City. Their victory in the Pinstripe Bowl was the Orange's first bowl win since 2001.In 2011, the team started 5-2, which included a win over then #11 West Virginia Mountaineers. After the 5-2 start, the Syracuse Orange failed to win another game in the season, resulting in a 5-7 record for the season.[8] In 2012, Marrone coached the Orange to an 8-5 record, and a share of the Big East Title as the result of a four-way tie. Their 38-14 victory in the Pinstripe Bowl again came against the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Buffalo Bills

On January 6, 2013, he was chosen to succeed Chan Gailey as head coach of the Buffalo Bills.[9] His overall record as head coach of the Bills was 15-17.[10]

In 2014, the Bills finished with a record of 9-7, second place in the AFC East and two wins away from making the playoffs. This was the Bills first winning season in 10 years (when the Bills finished 9-7 under Mike Mularkey in 2004). At the end of the 2014 season, it was revealed that Marrone had a three-day out clause in his contract, which he took advantage of; he resigned and still collected his 2015 salary in-full.[11] Marrone exercised the out clause and resigned on December 31, 2014.[12] After Marrone quit, several players expressed their displeasure and disgust with both the decision and the way that he informed the team; one of the captains and the longest-tenured player on the team, running back Fred Jackson, said it was "like getting punched in the stomach." [13] Marrone interviewed with the New York Jets after opting out of his contract with the Bills; his interview reportedly did not go well.[14]

Jacksonville Jaguars

On January 20, 2015, the Jacksonville Jaguars hired Marrone to be an assistant to the head coach and offensive line coach.[15]
