He is the perfector of the hurry-up offense. As the Offensive Coordinator for the [[Buffalo Bills]], Marchibroda and QB [[Jim Kelly]] perfected the "K-Gun" offense. With this style, Kelly hurried to the line of scrimmage, preventing the defense from making substitutions. At the line, Kelly called audibles.
