According to WKBW sports director Jeff Russo, Marrone had a cancerous mole found on his skin during a recent visit to the doctor.
“The recent extraction procedure will have no effect on my ability to coach the team moving forward,” Marrone said in a statement, according to Russo.
Marrone just needs to have his skin checked every three months.
I’m sure this comes as a huge relief to everyone who was rightfully concerned about Marrone’s health. The images of Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano battling leukemia during the 2012 NFL season is fresh on many of our minds, and the last thing we wanted to see was another coach dealing with something similar.
