Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has a three-day escape clause that allows him to terminate his contract now that the team's season is over, league sources confirmed.

Despite falling short of the playoffs again, this was the most competitive team the Bills have had in a decade. Doug Marrone deserves to keep his job next season, Mike Rodak writes. Story

The escape clause was a provision of the contract Marrone signed when he was hired in 2013, a stipulation made in the event of an ownership change, the sources said.

Terry and Kim Pegula officially were approved as the new Bills owners in October when the franchise was sold following the death of Ralph Wilson Jr. in March.

There is no indication Marrone will take advantage of the escape clause even though there is some uncertainty about a reorganization of the front office. The Bills finished 9-7 in Marrone's second season and sources say the Pegulas would like him to return in 2015.

The story about Marrone's three-day opt-out window was first reported by Pro Football Talk.
