NFL: 2016 Head Coach Prop Odds

Seven NFL teams are on the hunt for a new head coach after Black Monday. Many of these teams have been attached to the same potential head coaches with interviews already well underway to see who will lead the 49ers, Browns, Dolphins, Eagles, Giants and Titans into the future.

Bovada has released odds for who will be carrying the clipboard for each of these teams come the start of the 2016 season.

San Francisco 49ers

This past year was a disaster for the 49ers as their 5-11 record was the worst the team has posted since 2007. The offense finished dead last in the NFL and the team benched their $100 million quarterback for a guy they acquired for a sixth round pick.

At opening, Chip Kelly was the favorite to land the head coaching job for the 49ers, but Hue Jackson took the top spot within the first 24 hours of posting. San Fran will likely be in a good position to select a new franchise quarterback in the draft, which could intrigue Jackson who was a former quarterbacks coach.

Who will be the next head coach of the 49ers?

Odds as of January 7 at Bovada

  • Hue Jackson +200
  • Chip Kelly +250
  • Mike Shanahan +400
  • Anthony Lynn +700
  • Mike Holmgren +900
  • Adam Gase +900
  • Todd Haley +1200
  • Kyle Shanahan +1200

Cleveland Browns

This could very realistically be the worst head coaching vacancy. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is well known for firing coaching too quickly and generally being a far less-successful version of Jerry Jones. Any coach in Cleveland will also need to hire their own boss and will likely need to accept a heavy reliance on analytics after the team signed Moneyball character Paul DePodesta.

Hue Jackson is the favorite to be coaching the Browns in 2016. Cleveland brass will need to wait for the Bengals playoff run to end to go after Jackson, but the former quarterback coach could be intrigued by the chance of a fresh start with a new quarterback after JOhnny Manziel is likely shown the door.

Who will be the next head coach of the Browns?

Odds as of January 7 at Bovada

  • Hue Jackson +300
  • Adam Gase +500
  • Chip Kelly +600
  • Sean McDermott +600
  • Paul Guenther +700
  • Matt Patricia +700
  • Josh McDaniels +900
  • Teryl Austin +1000
  • Doug Marrone +1000
  • Doc Pederson +1200

Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins decided to give lame duck coach Joe Philbin the boot midseason and gave the interim title to Dan Campbell. Though the team initially looked better with Cambpell, they regressed to the poor performances that riddled Philbin's regime.

Mike Shanahan and Adam Gase are currently co-faves to be the coach in Miami next season. Both Shanahan and Gase have reportedly met with the Dolphins brass. Shanahan has not been in the NFL in a few seasons after overseeing the Washington Redskins to a 24-40 record in four seasons through 2010-2013. Gase on the otherhand has never been a coach in the NFL, but can seemingly have his pick of whichever team he wants to coach.

Who will be the next head coach of the Dolphins?

Odds as of January 7 at Bovada

  • Mike Shanahan +400
  • Adam Gase +400
  • Mike Smith +550
  • Teryl Austin +750
  • Doug Marrone +750
  • Josh McDaniels +900
  • Hue Jackson +900
  • Anthony Lynn +1200
  • Matt Patricia  +1200
  • Todd Haley +1200
  • Dan Campbell +1200

Philadelphia Eagles

After making Chip Kelly the football czar in Philly and watching it blowup in their faces, Eagles ownership is starting fresh. Offense seems to be the name of the game according to Bovada as the top three coaches listed are offensive coordinators this season.

The Eagles have already interviewed Gase once and the team has reportedly offered him the job, but there is no word on whether or not he will take it. Pat Shurmur was the favorite when these lines opened after he was the interim coach for the Eagles in their final game of the season.

Who will be the next head coach of the Eagles?

Odds as of January 7 at Bovada

  • Adam Gase -200
  • Pat Shurmur +700
  • Doug Pederson +700
  • Sean McDermott +700
  • Paul Guenther +1500
  • Hue Jackson +1500
  • Matt Patricia +1500
  • Tom Coughlin +1500

New York Giants

Whoever patrols the sideline for the Giants next season will be just the third coach since 1997 as Jim Fassel and Tom Coughlin coached the past 304 games in the team’s history. The Giants have already scheduled interviews with their offensive and defensive coordinators (Steve Spagnuolo and Ben McAdoo) for the position, with many predicting a promotion from within.

McAdoo quickly jumped out as the favorite from the two current Giants coordinators after spending a relatively short amount of time with the team. McAdoo was the quarterbacks coach in Green Bay before getting his first offensive coordinator job in New York in 2014.

Who will be the next head coach of the Eagles?

Odds as of January 7 at Bovada

  • Ben McAdoo EVEN
  • Josh McDaniels +350
  • Steve Spangnuolo +375
  • Sean McDermott +900
  • Doug Marrone +900
  • Hue Jackson +900
  • Nick Saban +2000
  • Jon Gruden +2500

Tennessee Titans

The Titans have a franchise signal-caller in Marcus Mariota and the No.1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft, so this position could be highly sought after. The organization axed Ken Whisenhunt midseason after going just 3-20 with the team and promoted Mike Mularkey to the interim position.

Mularkey has a long history in the NFL as he has been the head coach of both the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars in his time. This storied history and the fact that he was the interim coach for most of the 2015 season has Mularkey as the favorite to be coaching the Titans next year.

Who will be the next head coach of the Titans?

Odds as of January 7 at Bovada

  • Mike Mularkey +150
  • Chip Kelly +200
  • Hue Jackson +500
  • Adam Gase +500
  • Josh McDaniels +600
  • Teryl Austin +1000
