Doug Marrone has been named the Jaguars interim head coach with two games remaining in the 2016 season. This comes on the heels of the firing of former head coach Gus Bradley, who in his four years as the head man in Jacksonville amassed only 14 wins.
Marrone, who is 52 years old, has two years of experience as an NFL head coach. He was the head coach for the Buffalo Bills in 2013 and 2014, and despite having what many would consider subpar talent, he guided the Bills to a 15-17 record, and went 9-7 in his final year with the team. Marrone, unlike nearly every other former head coach, wasn't fired from his job -- he quit following a change in ownership. Since Marrone joined the Jaguars in 2015 he has served as the assistant head coach and offensive line coach.
Prior to becoming the Bills head coach in 2013, Marrone spent four years as the head coach at Syracuse.
If Marrone is able to fill in nicely over the next couple of weeks it could go a long way towards him getting an interview for the head coaching gig in the offseason, however it doesn't seem likely that the Jaguars head coach in 2017 will come from within the organization.
