Betting On The Next NFL Head Coach Fired

With Rhule gone, Nate Hackett of the Denver Broncos takes over the top spot on the Next Coach Fired in the NFL odds boards.

Next NFL Coach to Permanently Leave Their Post

  • Nathaniel Hackett -190
  • Frank Reich +500
  • Kliff Kingsbury +650
  • Ron Rivera +950
  • Dan Campbell +1200
  • Josh McDaniels +1400
  • Mike Tomlin +2500
  • Kevin Stefanski +2500
  • Dennis Allen +3000
  • Matt Eberflus +4000
  • Lovie Smith +4000
  • Mike Vrabel +5500
  • Mike McCarthy +6000
  • Robert Saleh +6500

Hackett has been overwhelmingly bad in his time in Denver, leading the Broncos to a 2-3 start, and forcing the team to hire a coach specifically to manage decisions that Hackett was messing up.

Frank Reich of the struggling Indianapolis Colts is next up on the chopping block, but his +500 odds pale in comparison to Hackett’s -190.

An intriguing option is Kliff Kingsbury, whose situation is complicated by the fact that his Arizona Cardinals will be featured on Hard Knocks: In-Season this year, and Kingsbury has been heavily featured in the advertisements for it.

Next Head Coach of the Carolina Panthers

The Panthers now have a hiring vacancy, and they’re expected to fill it with a surprising name – former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton.
