Doug Marrone

Regular Season: 10-13

Postseason: 0-0

Experience: 1

Career record: 10-13

The Buffalo Bills announced the hiring of Doug Marrone as the 16th head coach in franchise history on Jan. 7, 2013.

Marrone, 48, replaces former Bills head coach Chan Gailey, who was relieved of his duties on Dec. 31, 2012.

The 2013 season will mark Marrone's eighth year in the National Football League and first as a head coach in the professional ranks.

Marrone spent the previous for years as the head coach of his alma mater's football program at Syracuse University from 2009 to 2012 and 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 -- with both campaigns culminating in a New Era Pinstripe Bowl championship.

Syracuse's offense set several program records in 2012 for total yards (5,681), passing yards (3,619) and first downs (300).

Prior to his Syracuse tenure, Marrone spent seven years in the NFL. From 2006 to 2008, he served as the offensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints after a four-year span as the offensive line coach of the New York Jets (2002 to 2005).

The Saints led the NFL in total offense and passing yards per game in 2006 (391.5 total yards/game and 281.4 passing yards/game) and 2008 (410.7 total yards/game and 311.1 passing yards/game).

In 2004, the Jets' offensive line paved the way for the league's third-best rushing offense (149.3 rushing yards/game) while tallying the second-most rushing first downs (135). Running back Curtis Martin led the NFL with 1,697 rushing yards and posted nine 100-yard games.

Before arriving in New York, Marrone coached the tight ends and tackles at the University of Tennessee in 2001. He spent the 2000 season at the University of Georgia as the program's offensive line coach after spending the previous five years at Georgia Tech. In 1995, Marrone was the director of football operations before coaching the tight ends in 1996 and offensive line from 1997 to 1999.

In 1999, the Yellow Jackets led the nation in total offense (509.4 yards/game) and points per game (40.7). Marrone was part of a coaching staff that helped guide the school to a bowl game in three consecutive years (1997 to 1999).

Marrone's coaching career began in 1992 at Cortland (N.Y.) State as the school's tight ends coach before stints as the offensive line coach at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (1993) and Northeastern University in 1994.

Marrone, a Bronx, N.Y. native, was drafted in the sixth round of the 1986 NFL draft by the Los Angeles Raiders and played two years in the NFL, first with the Miami Dolphins in 1987 and then with the Saints in 1989. He also had playing stints with Pittsburgh, Dallas and Minnesota before closing his career with the NFLE London Monarchs (1991 to 1992).

A three-year letterman at Syracuse, Marrone returned to the university and graduated in 1991. He and his wife, Helen, have two daughters, Madeline and Anne, and a son, Mack.
