Saints Will Lose Offensive Coordinator Next Season

The NFL Network reported on Thursday that Doug Marrone, the New Orleans Saints Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach, will accept the job as head coach for Syracuse . Marrone graduated from Syracuse in 1991.

Marrone came to the Saints in 2006 from the New York Jets where he had served as Offensive Line Coach since 2002. He also coached for Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Northeastern, the Coast Guard Academy, and Courtland State in New York. He was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Raiders in 1986, playing with the Miami Dolphins and the New Orleans Saints in 1989.

Under his tenure, the Saints have exploded offensively. The team has been ranked first in offense and recorded a 4,000 yard passer, which had not happened before in its history. The team also allowed the few sacks in the league in 2007 and set an NFL record for pass completions.
