-Young, energetic, has more NFL experience than college
-The fact that Payton thought so highly of him to give him the title of "OC" is pretty impressing. He didn't call the plays but he did design the system.
-Both Parcells and Payton rave about him. Called him a future NFL HC years ago. Pretty highly regarded in NFL circles. Was on his way to SD where the Chargers were about to hire him before the Bills closed.
-Turned around one of the worst programs in CFB which was destroyed by Greg Robinson. 2 bowl wins, 25-25 record in an area where there isn't a lot of high school talent.
Preferred Lovie Smith to Marrone but I can get behind this guy. If Schiano got a HC gig I don't see why Marrone wouldn't.
