Why Is Collins The College Football Next Coach Fired Odds Favorite?
Georgia Tech football used to be relevant. The Yellow Jackets won the ACC’s Coastal division four times between 2006 and 2014 and appeared in nine bowl games during that time. In the three years since Geoff Collins took over as coach, the Jackets haven’t finished higher than sixth in the conference or finished with more than three wins.
With a 1-2 start to the season in 2022, Collins has former players “supporting his firing” to the media and it’s only a matter of time before the Jackets pull the trigger. Collins has a buyout that drops in January, but that’ll be long past the time to hire a good enough replacement, meaning there’s little to incentivize Georgia Tech to wait long.
Next College Football Coach Fired: Bet To Avoid
Jimbo Fisher (+2500)
Sure, Texas A&M’s offense has been hard to watch this year. But the Aggies aren’t making a coaching change any time soon. First off, Jimbo Fisher has actually had some success with A&M in recent years, but that’s not the main reason he won’t be fired.
Fisher has what would be the biggest coaching contract buyout in sports history attached to his deal with the Aggies. If A&M were to fire him, they’d owe the coach a whopping $85.6 million. So, before you go betting on Jimbo to be fired, remember how much money that would cost Texas A&M.
Next College Football Coach Fired: Best Bet
Bryan Harsin (+150)
It’s honestly impressive Harsin has made it this far. He was on the ropes all offseason, with “personal attacks” against him and a reportedly “divisive culture” with players. But, somehow, he was allowed to return as Auburn coach for 2022.
But, it ain’t going well this year. Despite wins over Mercer and San Jose State, the Tigers haven’t looked good, barely sneaking by the Spartans and getting whupped by Penn State. With a tough SEC schedule coming up, the coach’s days are numbered.
Harsin has a hefty buyout (above $15.3 million), but not high enough to dissuade a rich SEC team like Auburn from making a move if they see fit.
