Playing career

Marrone was a three-year letterman at Syracuse University, playing from 1983-1985 on the offensive line; he returned to graduate from the university in 1991.[1] He played with the Miami Dolphins in 1987 and the New Orleans Saints in 1989, and was with the London Monarchs of the World League in 1991.

Coaching career

On December 11, 2008, he was chosen as Syracuse University's head football coach after the 2008 season by athletic director Dr. Daryl Gross.[2] He is the first Syracuse alumnus to serve as head football coach since Reaves H. Baysinger in 1948.[1]

Reportedly, alumni such as Tim Green and Floyd Little wanted Marrone from the moment Robinson was fired, and when interviewed by Green, it was learned that Marrone had kept a folder of current high school players in the Syracuse area to get a head start in recruiting.[3][4][5]
