Todd Bowles, Steve Wilks have highest odds to be next head coach fired
Firing a head coach after the regular season is a normal custom in the NFL. They have done so to shake things up and make teams competitive again in their next campaign.
According to BetOnline, Todd Bowles and Steve Wilks have the highest odds in the seven-man list for the next head coach fired this season.
Todd Bowles took over the New York Jets in 2015. But after four seasons with the team, he’ll likely end up being fired because the Jets are currently in their third consecutive losing season.
He had a good start with a 10-6 record in his first year, but what followed was a string of terrible campaigns. The Jets went 5-11 in 2016 and 2017. This season they are dead last once again in the AFC East with a 3-9 record.
Steve Wilks has only been with the Arizona Cardinals since last January. Under him, the team became one of the worst in the league with a 3-9 record. He wasn’t able to replicate what Bruce Arians did before, and the team would more likely show him the exit door once the season is done.
Marvin Lewis is the second-longest-tenured coach in the NFL. The Cincinnati Bengals made the playoffs seven times since he debuted with the team in 2003. But currently, the team is on pace to record their third consecutive losing season. Changes may be made once the year is done and we’ll see if the Bengals keep Lewis.
Dirk Koetter had his chance to turn the Tampa Bay Buccaneers around this season. But currently, they are 5-7 which takes him to the hot seat.
After a 3-0 start this season, the Miami Dolphins have lost six of their last nine. It seems like they’ll miss the playoffs once again, and Adam Gase’s tenure with the team will likely be over.
