Giants interview ex-Bills coach Marrone
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants have interviewed former Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone for their head coaching job.
The Giants announced Saturday that the current Jacksonville assistant coach met with team president John Mara and general manager Jerry Reese at the Giants’ headquarters.
He is the fifth person interviewed since Tom Coughlin stepped down Monday. Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, along with Adam Gase of the Chicago Bears and Teryl Austin of the Detroit Lions also were interviewed.
Gase took the Miami Dolphins job Saturday.
Marrone was the Jaguars’ assistant head coach – offense, and offensive line coach. The Jaguars scored 376 points, 127 more than in 2014.
Marrone was the head coach of the Bills in 2013-14, when the team was 6-10 and 9-7, the team’s highest win total in 10 years. He entered NFL coaching as Jets offensive line coach from 2002-05. From 2006-08, he was offensive coordinator of the Saints under Sean Payton, a former Giants coordinator.
In 2009, Marrone became head coach at Syracuse, a position he held for four seasons.
