Brian Daboll Has Best Odds To Become Chargers’ Next Head Coach
Brian Daboll has gotten a ton of praise for the development of Bills quarterback Josh Allen into an MVP candidate. The hope would be that he could do the same for Chargers rookie phenom Justin Herbert, who is coming off a tremendous year.
Daboll has a strong history of working with young quarterbacks and helping them mature and understand the game better. Before he signed on with the Bills, he was the Alabama Crimson Tide co-offensive coordinator. He is the favorite to land the job and currently has 28.57 percent implied odds according to our Sports Betting Calculator.
Best Value Pick: Joe Brady
The Chargers will probably look for an offensive-minded coach who can mesh with their young star quarterback, so another appealing option is Joe Brady, the OC for the Carolina Panthers this past season.
Brady currently has the second-best odds to become the next Los Angeles Chargers head coach at +275. He spent one season as LSU’s passing game coordinator, helping Joe Burrow win the Heisman Trophy and the national championship.
Long-Shot Pick: Eric Bieniemy
The other option who will garner a ton of attention this year is Eric Bieniemy, the OC for the Kansas City Chiefs. Bieniemy, who has spent the last few years under head coach Andy Reid wth the Chiefs, has +600 odds to become the next head coach of the Chargers. He’s helped Patrick Mahomes to become one of the best quarterbacks we’ve seen in some time and the K.C. offense is always among the best in the NFL.
