Update: Marrone has canceled his interview with Denver, according to Schefter. He will wait to see what happens with Kubiak's interview on Sunday. Original story below.

A new candidate has emerged in the Broncos' search for their next head coach.

Former Bills head coach Doug Marrone is scheduled to interview with Denver on Saturday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Marrone went 15-17 in Buffalo before choosing to opt out of his contract with the Bills at the conclusion of the 2014 season.

The news of Marrone's interview comes just hours after news broke that Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak will be in town this weekend to interview for Denver's opening. His interview will be on Sunday, and he remains the front-runner to land the job.

If Kubiak is hired, ESPN's Jeff Legwold sees Ravens quarterback coach Rick Dennison as a potential offensive coordinator candidate and Bengals secondary coach Vance Joseph, who will interview in Denver today, as a potential defensive coordinator.

Meanwhile, NBC 4's Dianna Russini reports that Kyle Shanahan could be a candidate for Denver, though it's unclear if he is a head coach or offensive coordinator prospect. The man Denver is looking to replace, John Fox, has all but finalized a deal to become the Bears' next head  coach.

Back to Marrone — he has coached ten years in the NFL after college stints with schools including Syracuse, Tennessee, and Georgia. Everyone interviewing with Denver is a candidate, but Kubiak remains the clear favorite.
