CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Nathaniel Hackett's promotion to offensive coordinator "paves the way" for Doug Marrone to take over as interim head coach.
Marrone was passed up at coordinator for Hackett, but Jacksonville is saving him for if/when Gus Bradley gets fired. Bradley's job security is week to week after scapegoating Greg Olson. Marrone managed a nine win season before opting out of Buffalo. The Jaguars offensive line has been among the worst in the league under him, but Marrone is the top candidate to replace Bradley.

Jaguars OL coach Doug Marrone interviewed for the Titans' head-coaching vacancy on Thursday.

Per reporter Terry McCormick, Marrone made a "good impression." Marrone was supposedly going to be a hot commodity this offseason, but most teams quickly passed. In Tennessee he's vying with interim coach Mike Mularkey, who is viewed as the heavy favorite to keep his job. Marrone could regret walking out on the Bills for the rest of his career.
Jan 14 - 4:09 PM

Titans requested to interview Jaguars assistant head coach Doug Marrone.

His agent deserves a raise. Despite earning a bad reputation in Buffalo and quitting on the team, Marrone has now interviewed for four head-coaching gigs. He may not land any of them, but it certainly appears Marrone is still well-regarded in front offices around the league. His former players have a different opinion.
Jan 9 - 9:34 AM

Sources tell the Cleveland Plain Dealer that some Browns players are "concerned" about the possibility of Jaguars OL coach Doug Marrone replacing Mike Pettine.

Marrone earned a miserable reputation during his two years in Buffalo, something highlighted by the fact that he couldn't even get a coordinating job after quitting on his team following last season. Bills players openly celebrated his resignation, and derided him as having too much of a college mindset. However, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Marrone is a big believer in analytics. The Browns are going all in on numbers this offseason. They'll have to decide if Marrone's apparent lack of human touch is worth it.
Jan 7 - 5:31 PM

Jaguars OL coach Doug Marrone will interview for the Giants' head-coaching vacancy on Saturday.

Marrone is clearly still highly thought of around the league despite quitting on the Bills after the 2014 season. He's already drawn interest from the Browns and Dolphins in addition to the Giants. Marrone's offensive line was terrible in Jacksonville, but he apparently has the head-coach qualities.
Jan 5 - 9:07 PM

Jaguars OL coach Doug Marrone's interview for the Dolphins' head-coaching job will occur on Friday.

Marrone is also a candidate in Cleveland, where ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi considers him the favorite to replace Mike Pettine. Anonymous reports have painted Marrone as something of an egomaniac, an assertion supported by his opting out of his Bills contract last year, presumably in search of a better job that never came.
Jan 5 - 7:38 PM

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports Jaguars assistant head coach/offensive line coach Doug Marrone will interview for the Dolphins' head-coaching job.

He also has an interview lined up with the Browns. Marrone opted out of his contract with the Bills last season because he thought he could land a better job elsewhere. He ended up striking out despite interviews with the Falcons, Bears and Jets, but he is ready to get back on the horse in this year's carousel. Marrone reportedly would bring along Jim Schwartz as his defensive coordinator if he lands a job.
Jan 4 - 9:30 AM

SI's Peter King reports the Browns will interview Jaguars assistant head coach/offensive line coach Doug Marrone for their head-coaching vacancy on Tuesday.

"St. Doug" quit on the Bills shortly after last season, did a couple head-coaching interviews with the Falcons, Bears, and Jets, but ultimately settled into Jacksonville, coaching the offensive line. In Football Outsiders' DVOA, the Jaguars' line checked in at 15th in run blocking and 24th in pass protection. Marrone went 15-17 in his two seasons with the Bills, turning in a 9-7 record in 2014. A bit full of himself, Marrone still seems to be well-regarded in the NFL world. It's probable he'd bring along Jim Schwartz as defensive coordinator.
Jan 3 - 8:43 PM

Jaguars hired Doug Marrone as "assistant head coach -- offensive line."

Marrone opted out of his Bills contract presumably thinking he'd get a new head-coaching gig, or at least a coordinator job. Instead, he settles for o-line duties where he'll fill in for George Yarno, who remains on a leave of absence for cancer treatments. The shred of good news for Marrone is that he'll still collect $4M from the Bills this season on top of his Jags salary.

CBS' Jason La Canfora expects ex-Bills coach Doug Marrone to be a candidate for the Ravens' offensive-coordinator vacancy.

Ex-Broncos OC Adam Gase has also been connected to the Ravens, who must replace Gary Kubiak after he was hired as the Broncos' head coach. Marrone, who opted out of his Bills contract, has gone from looking like he'd get another head job with ease to potentially ending up as a position coach. His reputation appears to be in tatters in league circles.
Mon, Jan 19, 2015 01:46:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Doug Marrone has canceled his head-coaching interview with the Broncos.

He's the second candidate to cancel in one day, joining Lions DC Teryl Austin. The smoke that Gary Kubiak is poised to replace John Fox could become fire before too long.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Broncos will interview Doug Marrone for their head-coaching vacancy on Saturday.

Ravens OC Gary Kubiak will interview for the Denver job on Sunday. Kubiak is the heavy favorite. GM John Elway is covering all the bases and may as well touch base with Marrone, who opted out of his contract with the Bills on New Year's Eve. He's since interviewed for the Jets, Falcons, and Bears' vacancies, but was never seriously in play for any of those jobs.
Fri, Jan 16, 2015 11:51:00 AM

The Jaguars interviewed ex-Bills coach Doug Marrone for their offensive-coordinator vacancy on Wednesday.

It's appearing less likely that Marrone is going to get another head-coaching gig this offseason, so he's making the rounds for other positions. There's also a possibility Marrone was interviewing for the Jaguars' OL coach job, as incumbent George Yarno missed the 2014 season with cancer. Marrone has an extensive OL and TEs coaching background and was the Saints' OC from 2006-2008.
Wed, Jan 14, 2015 03:28:00 PM

The Bears interviewed ex-Bills coach Doug Marrone and Lions OC Teryl Austin for their head-coaching vacancy on Tuesday.

It's Marrone's second-known interview since he bombed his talk with the Jets, but he's also been linked to the Falcons. John Fox is considered the man to beat in Chicago.
Tue, Jan 13, 2015 07:45:00 PM

The Chicago Tribune expects the Bears to "vet" coaching candidates Doug Marrone and Teryl Austin even as John Fox emerges as the favorite to replace Marc Trestman.

Austin has been formally linked to Chicago, but Marrone has not. Marrone's perceived stock has tumbled since he bombed his Jets interview. It appears Marrone's ego could keep him out of the NFL head-coaching ranks for 2015.
