NFL Report: Browns ‘very impressed’ in interview with Doug Marrone

One of the unusual hot coaching candidates on the rumor mill these days is Syracuse coach Doug Marrone. A former New Orleans saints offensive coordinator, Marrone, 48, already has interviewed with the Bills, and will interview soon with the Eagles and Chargers.

Reports then circulated yesterday that he also interviewed with the Browns earlier this week, and Plain Dealer reporter Mary Kay Cabot added this tidbit:

All this news comes as the Browns remain in hot pursuit of Oregon head coach Chip Kelly, who is 49years old. Marrone also has had much limited college success, although he comes from an NFL background.

    It’s not as if they’re going to say that they were underwhelmed.

    Are they hedging their bets for when Kelly signs in Phi or goes back to Ore?

    Does anyone else on their ipad have to sign into discus all the time?! So annoying

  • saggy

    obviously trying to put the heat on Kelly to sign.

    I once was also “very impressed” with a dump I took awhile back.

    Good Job Marrone.
