Football Coach
    His playing career in the NFL only lasted five games.
    He was a member of six different NFL teams between 1988 and 1991, getting cut from five of them.
    He had a nomadic coaching career in the college football ranks.
    He kept a file folder of high school players in the Syracuse area, as a way of getting a head start on player recruitment, despite the fact he didn't have the head coaching job at the school yet.
    He referred to himself as 'Saint Doug' at his introductory press conference with the Bills.
    He opted to exercise his walk out clause from the Bills hours after the conclusion of the 2014 season, following the sale of the team from the estate of Ralph Wilson to Terry and Kim Pegula, while collecting his 2015 salary in full.
    His decision to walk out on the Bills, while collecting his full salary for the following year prompted many of the team's players to express their disgust with him and his leadership.
    To add further insult to the Bills, he interviewed for the New York Jets head coaching job for the 2015 season.
    He failed to carry the momentum for the Jaguars, following their appearance in the AFC championship game (2018).
    He is the second coach in NFL history, after George Seifert to guide a team to 15 consecutive losses following an opening week win during a season.
    He was a three year letterman at Syracuse University.
    He was the first Syracuse alumnus to serve as the head coach of the football team in 60 years.
    His teams at Syracuse showed significant improvement in his first few seasons at the helm.
    He guided Syracuse to two Pinstripe Bowl titles (2010, 2012).
    He guided the Bills to their first winning season in ten years in his first year at the helm (2013).
    He earned the Jaguars head coaching job full-time after posting a 1-1 record in his two game stint and the team showing significant improvement, following the firing of Gus Bradley.
    He guided the Jags to their first playoff berth in 10 years, along with their first division title in 18 years (2017).
    He made the most of his second chance to be an NFL head coach, which many football pundits felt he wasn't going to get following his controversial departure from Buffalo.
