Bills coach Doug Marrone opts out of his contract
Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has opted out of his contract.
Bills owner Terry Pegula made the statement tonight.
Marrone reportedly has had friction with general manager Doug Whaley.
"Doug Marrone informed me late today that he has decided to exercise the option clause in his contract and relinquish his responsibilities as our head coach," Pegula said in a statement. " “We are disappointed that Coach Marrone will no longer be an important part of our organization. We thank him for all of his hard work and leadership during his tenure and wish him and his family the best with the next chapter in their lives. We will now begin the important process of conducting a thorough search for a new head coach as we continue to strive to reach our goal of returning to the playoffs and bringing a championship to Buffalo for our fans.”
