Doug Marrone puts the ass in assistant coach

Days after guiding the Buffalo Bills to their first winning season in a decade, coach Doug Marrone abruptly walked away from his contract, as was his right during a three-day window at the year’s end.

Rex Ryan is facing a crossroads in his career. Many expected the former Jets head coach to fill the vacancy in San Francisco or Chicago.
