Doug Marrone ended last season as the Jaguars’ interim head coach. Next season, he could be the Rams’ head coach.

The Rams are requesting permission from the Jaguars to interview Marrone, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Marrone spent two years as head coach of the Bills, going 6-10 in his first season and 9-7 in his second. He surprisingly resigned after his second season and has been in Jacksonville since. Prior to coaching the Bills he was the head coach at Syracuse.

The Jaguars are also expected to consider Marrone on a permanent basis, and there have been reports that if Sean Payton leaves the Saints, New Orleans would consider Marrone as well. Marrone could be a busy man as coaching interviews get underway.

  1. Is Del Rio the only coach in California right now?
    Weird, huh?

    “…So when California slides into the ocean,
    Like the mystics and statistics say it will…”

  2. I don’t know, I think the Rams should be looking for someone a little more “Hollywood”… you know style over substance cause winning hasn’t been a priority over the past few seasons.

  3. This man has a PR machine like no other… heaven help the team that falls for it.

  4. Another retread trying to get hired by a dumb organization. At this rate, the Rams will be lucky to have 3,000 fans in the first game at their new stadium when it opens.

  5. Wow. Lack of good coaches is another area that is going to doom the NFL. Lots of openings….no good prospects.

  6. Syracuse fan and Bills fan here. Can’t stand this guy for quitting on the Bills. I get the “business decision” aspect, but I’m still disgusted.

    Hope Doug E. Fresh doesn’t get another shot to coach or is terribly unsuccessful.

  7. I’ll always be impressed by the fact that he (or his agent) absolutely fleeced the Bills out of the last year of his contract.

  8. I never quite understood why Marrone didn’t bring QB Ryan Nassib with him when he went to Buffalo. They drafted E.J. Manuel instead. Nassib was 100% the reason Syracuse was winning, and 100% the reason Marrone got the Buffalo job. Maybe Marrone wanted to, but was overruled. Maybe that’s why he walked away from Buffalo. Oh well, the Rams have a good young QB, so someone is going to be stepping into a good situation.

  9. Another #schmuckcoach who likes to punt from inside the opponents 40 yards line and belittle his players. Enjoy the years of mediocrity to come Rams fans….signed Bills fan…

  10. Not a chance. Kroenke figures that he NEEDS to have a big, fan-recognizable name to draw the fans, and Marrone ain’t that. It’s got to be Sean Payton, Josh McDaniel, Kyle Shanahan, Jon Gruden, or Rex Ryan.

  11. Bills fans hate this guy because he didn’t want to trade up for Sammy Watkins, he wanted to stay put and draft a QB. Instead, the Bills marvelous front office traded up for Watkins and signed Kyle Orton LOL

  12. Queue the annual “why isn’t a black coach being considered for these HC positions”?
    It always amazes me how the only “minority” that counts is black. Hispanic, pacific islander, Asian, etc just never seem to count as “minorities” in the eyes of the media or black community.

    Hire the best person for the job, regardless of skin color.

  13. Based off what Bortles did with him as the interim coach for two games, Jacksonville should seriously consider him for their coach.

    Rex Ryan? Are you a comedian?

  15. In my humble opinion, he should stay in Jacksonville if offered that position.

    They are not in salary cap hell (Saints), they didn’t trade away their top picks (Rams), they probably have more raw young talent than either one of those teams, and they have an owner who didn’t keep his last coach on a short leash and has shown he is willing to spend money to attract whatever free agents are willing to go there.

    Plus, they play in an extremely winnable division.

    Marrone should remember what happened to him the last time he got a wandering eye.

    LOL- the only coach to bring you a winning season in the last 12 years. Good lord, Bills fans are delusional.
