Titans Interview Doug Marrone for Head Coach


NASHVILLE, Tenn. —The Titans on Thursday interviewed Doug Marrone for the team's head coaching position.

Marrone currently serves as assistant head coach-offense/offensive line coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Prior to that he spent two seasons as head coach of the Buffalo Bills, where he compiled a 15-17 mark, including a 9-7 record in 2014.

Among the group Marrone met with today included Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk and Kenneth Adams IV from the ownership group, President Steve Underwood, and Jon Robinson, who on Thursday agreed in principle to serve as the team's general manager.

Prior to joining the Bills, Marrone spent four seasons (2009-12) as the head coach of his alma mater, Syracuse, where he led the program to a 21-17 record in the last three seasons.

Marrone spent seven seasons in the NFL (2002-08) before moving on to the collegiate ranks, including serving as offensive coordinator for three years (2006-08) with the New Orleans Saints. Marrone was the offensive line coach with the New York Jets from 2002-05.

He served as offensive line coach at the University of Tennessee in 2001 after previously working at Georgia (2000) and Georgia Tech (1995-99). He also worked previously at Cortland, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and Northeastern.

The Titans relieved Ken Whisenhunt of his head coaching duties in November. Mike Mularkey served as interim coach the final nine games of the 2015 season.
