Report: Eagles to interview Doug Marrone

In the midst of many other teams making coaching decisions in the past 24 hours, the Eagles have used the week since Chip Kelly's firing as they said they would, adding names to the list of coaches to interview.

Joining that list is Doug Marrone, the assistant head coach and offensive line coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Marrone was hired as part of Gus Bradley's staff prior to the 2015 season. Marrone had spent the previous two seasons as head coach of the Buffalo Bills, going 15-17 in two seasons. 

Marrone was the offensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints from 2006 to 2008 before spending four seasons as the head coach at Syracuse, going 25-25 in his college career with two bowl game wins.

Additionally, Mortensen also reported that Adam Gase, the Chicago Bears offensive coordinator, had a phone conversation with the Eagles on Sunday night. Gase is scheduled to interview with the Eagles on Tuesday and has interviews scheduled with Cleveland and Miami later this week.
