                    === Report: Bills hire Doug Marrone ===
 
 (Sports  Network) -  Doug Marrone has decided to leave Syracuse and become the
 head coach of the Buffalo Bills, according to ESPN.
 
 ESPN reported that the Bills and Marrone reached a deal early Sunday morning.
 
 Marrone replaces Chan Gailey, who was fired last Monday after going 16-32 over
 three  seasons,  and inherits  a club  that hasn't  reached the playoffs since
 1999.
 
 The  48-year-old  Marrone compiled a 25-25  record in four seasons at Syracuse
 and  his tenure with  the Orange ended with a 38-14 victory over West Virginia
 in last month's Pinstripe Bowl.
 
 Marrone has experience working in the NFL. He was an offensive line coach with
 the  New  York Jets and  served as Sean  Payton's offensive coordinator in New
 Orleans from 2006-08.
