Football Scoop: Doug Marrone Wants Kevin Rogers

Ryan MaloneyContributor IIJanuary 26, 2010


Football Scoop is reporting that Syracuse head football coach Doug Marrone has "great interest" in bringing Minnesota Vikings assistant Kevin Rogers to the Orange staff.

Rogers has spent the past four seasons coaching Minnesota's quarterbacks.  In the years prior to that, he took on various roles on Paul Pasqualoni's staff at Syracuse University.  Rogers joined the program as the quarterbacks coach in 1991.  By 1995 he was the assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator.

He was promoted to offensive coordinator in 1997, a job he held for two seasons—the junior and senior seasons of quarterback Donovan McNabb—before bolting to Notre Dame.  The Orange held a 17-8 record and scored 891 points during the time that Rodgers served as OC.
