More fallout from yesterday’s hiring of Doug Marrone as the new Head Coach of the Bills tonight on The John Murphy Show.
At 720pm, we’ll be live with Bills TE Scott Chandler. He’s a former teammate of Cowboys TE Jason Witten, and Witten had Marrone as his positon coach at the University of Tennessee back in 2001. We’ll ask Scott what he’s heard about Coach Marrone from Witten, and try to get a sense of what Bills players are thinking and saying about the new man in charge.
For the last week, there’s been a lot of buzz about the Bills push to employ football “analytics” in the future. New Team President Russ Brandon mentioned it last week, and Coach Marrone addressed it in his introductory news conference Monday. Tonight at 8pm, we’ll talk with analyst Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus about analytics, and how NFL teams are using the new information. Monson is one of the core team members at Pro Football Focus.
And as we continue to learn more about Doug Marrone, we’ll touch bases with one of his former college teammates tonight. Daryl “Moose” Johnston played at Syracuse University with Marrone in the mid 1980s. The Youngstown, New York native is now an analyst with the NFL on Fox, after an 11-year career as a fullback with the Cowboys. We’ll ask “Moose” about Marrone tonight at 820pm.
As always, we’ll make plenty of time for the news of the day and we’ll take phone calls from Bills fans.
The John Murphy Show airs weeknights from 7-9pm on the flagship station of the Bills, WGR Sports Radio 550.
