Bills' players, owners and others react to Doug Marrone leaving Buffalo

Doug Marrone's departure from Buffalo surprised just about everyone, including some Bills' players.

Doug Marrone is leaving the Buffalo Bills and taking his $4 million 2015 salary with him. Marrone exercised an opt out clause in his contract Tuesday, a surprise move to many, including Buffalo players. Several Bills, both current and former, took to Twitter to respond to the news.

Here's a sampling of the reaction.

Bills owners:

Statement from the team:

"Doug Marrone informed me late today that he has decided to exercise the option clause in his contract and relinquish his responsibilities as our head coach.

"We are disappointed that Coach Marrone will no longer be an important part of our organization. We thank him for all of his hard work and leadership during his tenure and wish him and his family the best with the next chapter in their lives.

"We will now begin the important process of conducting a thorough search for a new head coach as we continue to strive to reach our goal of returning to the playoffs and bringing a championship to Buffalo for our fans."
