Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Shefter is reporting that Doug Marrone – SU’s head football coach – will interview for at least two of the now open head coaching jobs in the NFL.
NewsChannel 9 knew it was a possibility after Marrone guided the Orange to its second bowl game in the last three years.
Shefter broke the news on Twitter late Monday night, saying that Marrone will interview this week for the openings in Buffalo and Cleveland – two of the seven teams now looking to hire.
The Eagles, Bears, Chargers, Cardinals and Chiefs also fired their head coaches on Monday. However, Jets head coach Rex Ryan will keep his job.
As for Marrone, he’s 25-and-25 in his four seasons with the Orange. And remember, before coming to Syracuse, he was the offensive coordinator in New Orleans for three years.
