The Buffalo Bills hired former University of Syracuse coach Doug Marrone on Sunday. Could that mean Marrone’s quarterback at Syracuse, Ryan Nassib, is next to follow?

The Bills are in need of a new quarterback after veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick flopped in 2012. Fitzpatrick's $7.45 million in salary and bonuses next season is not guaranteed. Therefore, the Bills are expected to part ways with Fitzpatrick with a new coaching staff and a new system.

Nassib also was one of several college quarterbacks the Bills heavily scouted during the college season. Others include Geno Smith of West Virginia and Mike Glennon of NC State.

But with Marrone on board, that may increase Buffalo's interest in Nassib. The Bills will have more knowledge of Nassib than any other team. Nassib has a 70 grade from Scouts Inc. and is expected to go in the second or third round. Of course, a lot can change with players' stock during the combine and pre-draft interviews.

Would a Marrone-Nassib pairing next year interest Bills fans? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
