Doug Marrone Opts Of Contract, Leaves Buffalo Bills

Doug Marrone is no longer the Buffalo Bills head coach.

The announcement came down at 6:09PM on Wednesday. Marrone had a 3-day opt out window in his contract that was open once the regular season ended. That window was set to expire at midnight on December 31st.

Marrone is now one of the top available coaching candidates in the NFL. With openings in Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, Oakland and the New York Jets, Marrone has several locations to possibly choose from. 

Bills’ owner Terry Pegula issued a statement in the wake of the decision. It reads as follows:
 “Doug Marrone informed me late today that he has decided to exercise the option clause in his contract and relinquish his responsibilities as our head coach.
 “We are disappointed that Coach Marrone will no longer be an important part of our organization. We thank him for all of his hard work and leadership during his tenure and wish him and his family the best with the next chapter in their lives.
 “We will now begin the important process of conducting a thorough search for a new head coach as we continue to strive to reach our goal of returning to the playoffs and bringing a championship to Buffalo for our fans.”
