Sounds like Chan, Jauron, Williams and Mularkey!

I think what's telling is Marrone flew out to Arizona to meet with them. You might have figured "oh, it's a short drive down the Thruway, they'll interview him after hitting up Arizona and Denver (since they're still playing)", etc. He really wanted the Bills job that he flew out there for the whole week.

As to whether the Bills wanted him as badly...they clearly thought highly of him. I don't think the number of interviews means they wanted him from the start, but rather as they were narrowing down their choices he kept making the cut, and they probably wanted to go deeper. If anything, it's a good sign that they were diligent and really vetted the candidates before agreeing. I imagine they had multiple meetings with some of the other guys on their radar (notably Whisenhunt, given all the early speculation on how much they liked him).

Oh, and I would hardly call Jauron or Gailey the sort of disciplinarian Marrone is.
