SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — A week ago, Doug Marrone was basking in the glow of Syracuse’s resounding victory over West Virginia in the Pinstripe Bowl. On Monday, he was introduced as the new coach of the Buffalo Bills.

Things change quickly in this game.

Hired by the Bills after going 25-25 in four seasons at Syracuse, the 48-year-old from the Bronx leaves a significant void at his alma mater as the Orange prepare to leave the Big East for the Atlantic Coast Conference in July.

Though the university had not made an announcement, on Monday night defensive coordinator Scott Shafer’s Wikipedia page already was updated to say he was the head coach, and his son and former players Rob Long and Antwon Bailey congratulated Shafer on Twitter.
