One of the better candidates but not the clear cut best…he has never called plays in the NFL and as much as he had the title of OC in NO he was pretty much so a glorified Oline coach…he has done a great job at Syracuse but there have been many good college HCs that have failed in the pros.

Haha, you just were trying to cause an uproar or something??

I dont think there really is a clear cut guy this year, the Chiefs obviously really wanted Reid but I dont think he would have been a good fit for alot of these jobs.

The whole thing with Marrone for Buffalo is that he is from Syracuse so upstate NY connection and such, like KC with Reid, Marrone probably was the favorite for Buffalo specifically.

Didn't someone say Sullivan was from Chicago...?

No was just curious why a lot of teams chased him.

No, he definitely wasn't, but he was a good one. Wasn't even in my personal top 5.

The Bills have to move quickly and sign a guy who will coach them because they don have as much to offer.

Is anyone going to Buffalo over Chicago, Philadelphia, Arizona or San Diego.

They have to take the first guy they like before the bigger team get involved.

And if so why did we not get him?
Not even close. This hiring will go down in flames like the rest of the Bills choices. I thought this would be the only organization which would have hired Smith so it looks like the Bears are going to be on the hook for that salary. Crying or Very sad

His record is laughable compared to Chip Kelly and a lot of other college coaches. His team was improving but there is no reason to think it will continue apace.

He barely has more wins than losses. This hire was the hire of a Loser Organization.

Both hirings will be big mistakes.

And that has what to do with Marrone’s coaching ability? Kelly took over a team from Mike Bellotti that had just went 10-3 and was nationally ranked at #10…Marrone took over from Greg Robinson who had won 10 total games in 4 seasons…47 games and they won 10…to compare the situation that both walked into is pointless…

Marrone might not have been the best candidate out there but I have more faith in his college offence working in the NFL than Kelly current one…and you can only judge a guy on what he has done…not what you presume he can do.

And that has what to do with Marrone’s coaching ability? Nothing and it will soon show that he is over his head.

My guess is NO.

Sure we could hire the coach of Joliet Catholic, too. Marrone has never been the head coach in a real conference. He probably would have had little success even in the Big Ten had he taken the next logical step to a major conference rather than answer the call of a desperate and bad organization.

And yet again you’re full of it…Marrone was the HC in an automatic BCS conference…to say it isn’t a real conference when the team who won the conference beat the #3 ranked team in the nation in a bowl game makes no sense…plus the Big Ten is no more a major conference than the Big East at this point.
