Doug Marrone was named the fifth head coach of the Jaguars on Jan. 9, 2017 after previously serving as the team's interim head coach for the final two games of the 2016 season. Marrone was originally hired as the team's assistant head coach-offense/offensive line coach on January 20, 2015, following a two-year stint as the head coach for the Buffalo Bills (2013-14).

In 2016, Marrone's offensive line allowed 34 sacks, 17 fewer than last season (51 sacks allowed) and 37 fewer than in 2014 (71 sacks allowed). The Jaguars' 34 sacks allowed were the fewest sacks allowed by the team since it yielded 31 sacks in 2007.

In his first season with the Jaguars in 2015, Marrone helped the offensive line provide protection for QB Blake Bortles, who set single-season franchise records with 355 completions, 606 pass attempts, 4,428 yards and 35 touchdowns. In addition, Marrone's squad blocked for rookie RB T.J. Yeldon, who accounted for 740 rushing yards and 279 receiving yards in 2015, becoming the first Jaguars rookie to surpass 1,000 scrimmage yards since Maurice Jones-Drew (1,377) in 2006. Yeldon also placed third among AFC RBs in 2016 with 84.9 scrimmage yards per game, trailing only LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory.

Prior to joining the Jaguars, Marrone compiled a 15-17 mark at the Bills helm including a 9-7 mark in 2014, the team's most wins since 2004. He became only the third coach in Bills history to win 15 games in his first two seasons (Marv Levy, 19; Wade Phillips, 21). The Bills had six Pro Bowl selections during Marrone's two seasons.

The Bills had three different players with 60 receptions in 2014 for the first time in team history (Fred Jackson, 65; Sammy Watkins, 62; Robert Woods, 61) and the club produced six individual 100-yard receiving games. Watkins set team rookie records for receptions and receiving yards (982). The Bills ranked sixth in the NFL in 2014 with a plus-seven turnover differential.

In 2013, Marrone's offensive unit led the AFC and finished second in the NFL in rushing (144.2 avg.) while also leading the league with 95.5 pct. red zone efficiency mark. Rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel started 10 games and set team rookie records for passing touchdowns (11) and completions (180).

Prior to joining the Bills, Marrone spent four seasons (2009-12) as the head coach of his alma mater, Syracuse, where he led the program to a 21-17 record in the last three seasons. He guided the Orange to an 8-5 mark in 2010 and 2012 and both seasons culminated with a New Era Pinstripe Bowl championship. The Orange set several school records in 2012, including total yards (5,681), passing yards (3,619) and first downs (300). Marrone earned the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Region 1 Coach of the Year honors in 2011 and was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award.

Marrone spent seven seasons in the NFL (2002-08) before becoming a collegiate head coach. From 2006-08, Marrone served as the offensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints. He directed an offense that led the NFL in total offense (391.5 avg. in 2006; 410.7 avg. in 2008) and passing yards per game (281.4 avg. in 2006; 311.1 in 2008) in two different seasons (2006-08). The Saints' offensive line held their opponents to the fewest sacks allowed in the NFL in 2006 (16) and tied for the fewest sacks in the NFL from 2006-08 with 52 despite leading the NFL with 1,868 passing attempts during that span. Quarterback Drew Brees captured the NFL passing title in 2006 (4,418 yards) and 2008 (5,069) and became just the second passer in NFL history to eclipse 5,000 passing yards (Dan Marino, 1984).

Prior to his arrival in New Orleans, the franchise had never had a 4,000-yard passer or registered more than 5,700 yards of offense. Brees eclipsed 4,000 passing yards and the offense posted more than 5,700 yards in each of Marrone's three seasons with the Saints. The Saints established a team record with an NFL-best 6,264 yards of offense in 2006, 5,780 in 2007 (4th in the NFL) and led the NFL again in 2008 with 6,571 yards.

In Marrone's first season as an NFL offensive coordinator in 2006, left tackle Jammal Brown was voted to the All-Pro team and to the Pro Bowl in his first year at the position, while guard Jahri Evans was a unanimous All-Rookie selection. The Saints ranked fourth in in the NFL in 2007 for total offense and set an NFL record for completions (440) and had franchise bests for passing first downs (222), attempts (652), touchdown passes (28) and completion percentage (67.5). In 2008, the Saints led the NFL in total offense while setting team records for points (463), total yards (6,571), net passing yards (4,977), touchdowns (57) and first downs (354).

Marrone was the offensive line coach of the New York Jets from 2002-05 and the team made two postseason appearances (2002, 2004) with him on the staff. In 2004, the Jets produced the NFL’s third-best rushing offense (149.3 avg.) and Curtis Martin led the NFL with 1,697 rushing yards.

Before arriving in New York, Marrone served as tight ends/tackles coach at the University of Tennessee in 2001. He spent the 2000 season at the University of Georgia as offensive line coach after spending the previous five seasons (1995-99) at Georgia Tech where he was part of three consecutive bowl appearances. He was director of football operations for the Yellow Jackets in 1995 before coaching the tight ends in 1996 and offensive line from 1997-99.

Marrone began his coaching career in 1992 at Cortland (N.Y.) State as the school’s tight ends coach before having stints as the offensive line coach at U.S. Coast Guard Academy (1993) and Northeastern University in 1994. A native of Bronx, New York, Marrone was a sixth-round draft pick of the Los Angeles Raiders in 1986 and played two years in the NFL. He played with the Miami Dolphins in 1987 and with the Saints in 1989. He also had playing stints with Pittsburgh, Dallas and Minnesota before closing his career with the NFL Europe’s London Monarchs from 1991-92. Marrone was a three-year letterman at Syracuse. He returned to Syracuse and graduated in 1991 with a degree in liberal arts.

Doug and his wife, Helen, have two daughters, Madeline and Annie, and a son, Mack.
