Scratch another name of the Eagles' list of potential coaches.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Doug Marrone has reached a deal to become head coach of the Buffalo Bills.

According to league sources, the Eagles had planned to interview Marrone this weekend in the Phoenix area, where they spent several hours meeting with Oregon's Chip Kelly on Saturday.

Marrone went 25-25 in four years at Syracuse, but this year’s team surprisingly won the Big East at 5-2 and went 8-5 overall, beating West Virginia 38-14 in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium, not far from where Marrone grew up.

He replaces Chan Gailey, who was fired after going 16-32 in three seasons with the Bills.
