Marrone comes to Buffalo after four seasons at Syracuse and a 25-25 record. His best two seasons came in 2010 and 2012 where he finished with 8-5 seasons and wins in the Pinstripe Bowl, beating Kansas State in 2010 and West Virginia in 2012.
Marrone should receive credit for developing Ryan Nassib. Entering the 2012 season, few took Nassib seriously as a pro prospect. Nassib is currently projected as a 2nd round pick.
Before joining Syracuse University, Marrone was the offensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints (2006-2008). The Saints were 25-23 during his time with the team with one playoff appearance in 2006.
