For Doug Marrone, Sunday will mark the first time he’s on an NFL sideline as a head coach. But if you ask Buffalo’s new head coach about what he might be feeling when he takes to the sideline this afternoon, he dismisses it.
“I really don’t think about that. I’m a little different type of guy,” said Marrone. “I’m more concerned about doing the best job I can, working the game management situations through my mind. Getting the players ready to play. Getting out there and really evaluating. Watching the coaches. We’ll be on the headphones doing all that stuff really for the first time. That’ll be my focus.”
For Marrone it’ll mark the first time he’s working as a head coach with assistants like Mike Pettine, Danny Crossman and others. Working the communication between the sidelines and the booth upstairs are just as important for coaches at times as the play on the field.
