NEW YORK - With Week 1 of the 2020 NFL regular season in the books, the question arises of which coaches around the league should be considered on the hot seat. What determines this is how well or poorly a team performs towards the beginning of the season.
NFL sportsbooks have odds on which NFL coach will be the first one to leave their post or get let go from their team. Leading on the odds board in nonother that the New York Jets head coach, Adam Gase.
First Coach To Leave Post:
- Adam Gase +210
- Matt Patricia +350
- Dan Quinn +600
- Doug Marrone +750
- Bill O’Brien +1100
- Matt Nagy +2500
- Anthony Lynn +2800
- Vic Fangio +3300
- Mike Zimmer +3300
- Zac Taylor +3500
- Bruce Arians +4000
- Brian Flores +5000
Adam Gase is the favorite on the odds board for a reason as he has looked completely lost during his stint with the New York Jets thus far. During his first season in 2019, he led the Jets to a below-average 7-9 record, which is clearly not good enough to make playoffs.
Along with their mediocre coaching record, Gase has also managed to build a bad relationship with not only his star running back, Le’Veon Bell but also with the team's former strong safety, Jamal Adams, who ended up demanding a trade.
The pressure could be getting to Gase and to the team as the fan base in New York is clearly not happy with him and it is only a matter of time before both sides collapse.
Matt Patricia, Detroit Lions
Following Gase is the Detroit Lions head coach, Matt Patricia. Looking at Patricia’s first two seasons as head coach of the Lions, he went 6-10 in 2018 and 3-12-1 in 2019. In all fairness, his first season was not a complete waste as it was his first time being the head coach of a team.
As for his second year, the team’s failure had to do with the number of injuries they dealt with in 2019 when they went 3-12. Injuries to both their starting quarterback, Matt Stafford, and starting running back, Kerryon Johnson are certainly the cause of this.
Being that the team is fully healthy and already blew a double-digit lead in Week 1 is a different story. If Patricia doesn’t prove that he can win games with a healthy roster, Detroit could be looking in a different direction soon.
Bill O’Brien, Houston Texans
Bill O’Brien should be considered a longshot option to be the first coach to leave their post as he has not done terrible during his stint with the Houston Texans, but recent team moves could force him out.
O’Brien has had a spectacular coaching career with the Texans as he has gone over a .500 record in five of his six seasons and has made the playoffs twice.
It would not be his coaching resume that pushes him out, but it would certainly be his job as the team's general manager. He made one of the most questionable moves in the 2019 offseason by trading away arguably the best wide receiver in the league. If he does not prove quickly that this was the right move, the team could act quickly and send O'Brien on his way.
