Updated: Tuesday, April 22 2014, 11:24 PM EDT
Following an inadvertent release on the Buffalo Bills' website, BuffaloBills.com, Doug Marrone announced tonight that had a cancerous mole removed from his skin during a recent doctor's visit.
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."
