Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

The NFL is entering the 8th week of the season. We’re almost half way through (insert crying emoji here). There have been some fantastic coaching performances so far this year. Brian Daboll, Nick Sirianni, and Robert Selah have catapulted to the top of the Coach of the Year discussion. But for all the good in the coaching world, there is also some bad. And even some really bad. Matt Rhule has already been let go by the Carolina Panthers, but it brings up the question; who will the the next NFL coach to be fired? When looking at the league the worst coaching job this year has to belong to Nathaniel Hackett in Denver. He has repeatedly mismanaged the clock, the offense looking terrible, and even went as far as hiring a coaching consultant. But good news for Hackett- it’s only his 1st season in charge.

Looking at the next NFL coach to be fired, I think there is great value in the betting market. Via Bookies.com Kliff Kingsbury is odds on favorite to be next at +225. I think he is definitely a candidate to be the next NFL coach axed. But there is more value on the market elsewhere. Frank Reich in Indianapolis is a prime candidate. The Colts have already announced Matt Ryan has been benched in favor of Sam Ehlinger. A sign that management is unhappy with the results thus far. At +775 there is tremendous value there. Jim Irsay is the type of owner to make a move in the middle of the season. And GM Chris Ballard might see the move as a way to hold on to his role for another coaching cycle. Here’s the list and odds for the next NFL coach to be fired.
