I'd actually be pretty happy with Marrone. Although it wouldn't be quite as big a splash as Kelly, it wouldn't shock me if he were the better professional HC.
I definitely think he could be a good NFL coach, he has turned Syracuse around in a very short period of time.
And we all know Kelly is probably going to get a ridiculous amount of money, so hiring Marrone may be the better plan.
I don't know, maybe I'm just surprised he's generating so much interest because he's just not a big name at all. But I'm sure he'll be a good NFL coach.
