Apparently two season in Buffalo was enough for Doug Marrone.

The former Syracuse University head man took has decided to opt out of contract and is now free to coach elsewhere, be it in the NFL or back in college.

The move caught many off guard as it seemed Marrone was going to rebuild in Buffalo the way he did at 'Cuse. The Bills still have the longest active streak of playoff-less seasons in the NFL (15), but Buffalo was in the hunt in 2014 and finished the year 9-7 - their best record in a decade.

ESPN has reported that Marrone had a unique clause in his contract that allowed him to leave after two seasons, a clause that was put in place to protect the coach in the case of an ownership change. Following the death of longtime owner Ralph Wilson, the team was purchased by Terry and Kim Pegula.

Some are speculating that Marrone will pursue the head coaching post with another AFC East club, the New York Jets, where Rex Ryan was recently fired and where Marrone had previously served as an offensive line coach. There are other more high-profile vacancies around the league, including Chicago and San Francisco.
