JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Doug Marrone's love of bologna has led the Jacksonville Jaguars to create and name a sandwich after the coach.
The Jaguars (8-4) debuted the "Marroney Bologna" on Sunday for the team's home game against Seattle (8-4).

Marrone donated 350 pounds of beef bologna earlier this week to an organization that distributes food to local charities.
Marrone's odd obsession with the lunch meat quickly became a story line this season. The 53-year-old Marrone first disclosed his fondness for bologna following an overtime victory against the Los Angeles Chargers last month. Marrone said bologna and cheese sandwiches are his go-to meal after games.
He later revealed that he grew up eating the sandwiches in New York City and never outgrew them. Marrone likes them a certain way: On white bread, with thin-sliced bologna from a deli, topped with American cheese and spicy mustard.
The sandwich now being sold for $6 at games at one difference: It's thick-sliced bologna.
