Football Gambling – Which Coaches Are On The Hot Seat In 2010?

One of the most popular online betting props during NFL betting season usually involves which head coach will lose their job first, and while this list may manage to make it through the season, we’re not sure that they’ll be back in 2011 without considerable success in 2010.  Here are the five we think have to have a big year.

Eric Mangini, Cleveland

The Browns have gone to the playoffs once since coming back to Cleveland in 1999, and they’ve had just two .500 seasons in that time as well.  Mangini was 5-11 in his first season at the helm in Cleveland, and now with Mike Holmgren lording over him as the team’s president, Mangini may feel pressure to get immediate results.  The problem is, if you look at their roster, it’s not very likely that the Browns are going to be a .500 team this year.  


Gary Kubiak, Houston

Kubiak has gotten the Texans closer than ever before to the playoffs, but you have to think that eventually, close won’t cut it anymore.  Kubiak is 31-33 since 2006 in Houston, and he’s crafted a great offense around the talents of Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson.  But offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan left to join his father Mike in Washington, and the defense has never been great in Houston.  If the Texans take a step back in 2010, Kubiak could pay for it.


Jack Del Rio, Jacksonville

The Jaguars failed to boost their NFL betting odds in the draft or the offseason, there’s virtually no one interested in the Jaguars in Jacksonville, and they’re 12-20 in the last two seasons.  Del Rio has done a steady job leading the Jaguars since 2003, going 57-55, but it seems as though the Jaguars are just treading water right now, and they may have to get back to .500 at least to save Del Rio’s job.


Tom Coughlin, New York Giants

The Giants have fallen mightily since their Super Bowl win three seasons ago, missing the playoffs last season with a miserable defense.  To Coughlin’s defense, the team had to deal with injuries to key players like Antonio Pierce and the arrest of Plaxico Burress, and if you remember, Coughlin’s employment in New York was on the ropes before they capped their improbable run to the title with a win over New England that ranks as one of the biggest in Super Bowl history.  If anyone is going to get off this list, it’s the perpetually red-faced Coughlin.


Andy Reid, Philadelphia

Reid made a bold move by trading Donovan McNabb to their division rivals in Washington, signaling the beginning of the Kevin Kolb era in Philadelphia.  Reid felt the team needed a change, but if they don’t win and the Redskins do, Reid may be the next one out the door.  Reid has coached the Eagles since 1999 (only Tennessee’s Jeff Fisher has coached his team for a longer period of time), and they’ve been successful under him, but they’ve never really broken through into the upper echelon of NFL teams, although they’re definitely at the top of the second tier.  If Kolb gets off to a tough start, then the Eagles’ sports betting odds will drop, and Reid’s head may finally roll.
