Former Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone has found a permanent home as a head coach in the National Football League once again.

According to multiple reports, Marrone has accepted the offer to become the permanent head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars after having served as the interim coach over the final two weeks of the 2016 regular season. Marrone took over for Gus Bradley, who had been the head coach of the team for almost full four seasons.

In his two games as interim head coach Marrone, and the Jaguars went 1-1. He coached the Buffalo Bills for the 2013 and 2014 seasons, accruing a 15-17 record before opting out of his contract with the change in ownership. 

He'll also be joined by a brand new hire to the front office. Former Jaguars and New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, according to multiple reports, will be brought on as the executive vice president of football operations.

Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell, who is a western New York native and St. Francis High School graduate, also signed a two-year extension with the organization through the 2019 season.
