Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has cancerous mole on skin removed, says he's fine

Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone had a cancerous mole removed from his skin but said he's fine, ABC affiliate WKBW first reported.

For a short time Tuesday, the Buffalo Bills website had a story with the headline, "Coach Marrone announces he has cancer," referring to head coach Doug Marrone. Then the story, which was obviously unfinished and left space for the writer to add a quote from Marrone and the specific cancer, was deleted. That led to a lot of speculation.

WKBW sports director Jeff Russo had the news.


Here's the full statement from Marrone, via the Bills public relations staff:

"During a recent doctor's visit, it was discovered that I had a cancerous mole on my skin, which has since been removed. The only follow up required is to have my moles checked every 3 months and that basically is the end of the story. The recent extraction procedure will have no effect on my ability to coach the team moving forward."

Hopefully, as Marrone said, this is the end of the story and he has no further issues with his health going forward.
