OddsShark has the odds for who will become the next head coach of the Denver Broncos. While it is close, there is a slight favorite.
As the Denver Broncos continue conducting interviews for their head coaching vacancy, OddsShark has provided the odds for the job. The leading candidate is currently Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.
The following is the list of candidates along with their odds of becoming the Broncos next head coach:
Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio (+150 — $250 payout)
Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor (+300 — $400 payout)
Former Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase (+500 — $600 payout)
Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano (+600 — $700 payout)
Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak (+750 — $850 payout)
New England Patriots defensive coordinator Brian Flores (+900 — $1000 payout)
Former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy (+900 — $1000 payout)
Former Colts and Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (+10000 — $10,100 payout)
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway (+10000 — $10,100 payout)
So there you have it. Fangio seems likeliest to become next head coach of the Denver Broncos.
If the Broncos decide to make that move, it seems likely that Fangio will focus a lot on defense, as he is a defensive coordinator. But would he be able to run the team as a whole? Well, it might be something we will be able to find out.
Manning and Elway are the least likely to become the head coach of the team. It is actually pretty funny that they are included in this. Whoever bet on those two are going to lose a lot of money.
It is also worth noting that, even though Adam Gase is listed here, General Manager John Elway said that the team is not considering him.
The Broncos are currently in the interviewing process. It would be wise if they took their time to figure out which guy is the right guy for the job. The team has already interviewed Pagano (Wednesday), Taylor (Thursday), and Munchak (Friday).
Flores is scheduled for an interview on Saturday, while Fangio’s interview is set for Monday.
Some of these candidates are currently preparing their team for their first playoff matchup of the 2018 season. That’s their main focus for right now.
If I had to guess, there won’t be just one person on the list that will become a member of the Denver Broncos in a matter of days (or maybe weeks).
One of these guys could become the head coach and then hire another to become a coordinator/position coach (e.g. Fangio becoming head coach and hiring Zac Taylor as offensive coordinator).
It’s getting real, Broncos Country. We will hopefully find out soon who will make up our coaching staff.
