Who Gets Fired Next in the NFL?

Right now, Saleh is the top man to get kicked out of the turbulent airplane that is the New York Jets organization, coming in at +350, while Chicago's Matt Eberflus and the Cowboys' Mike McCarthy are hot on his tail at +450 apiece.  

Eberflus has struggled through two seasons in the Windy City, going 10-24 (.294) but has No. 1 pick Caleb Williams and first round wideout Rome Odunze to build around in 2024, which could save his job if the pair of young players live up to their respective potentials on offense.  

McCarthy has won early and often in the Big D, going 42-25 (.627) in four seasons with two division titles, but has yet to advance past the NFC Divisional Round, with a pair of Wild Card upsets at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers spoiling solid seasons for the franchise. Expect McCarthy to hear rumors about being replaced by Bill Belichick after each Cowboys loss this season. 

Throw in Dennis Allen of the New Orleans Saints at +700 and Brian Daboll of the New York Giants at +1250 and you have the upper end of the NFL head coach firing pool for the new league year, while longshots like Sean McDermott of the Buffalo Bills (Daboll’s former boss) and Nick Sirianni of the Philadelphia Eagles round out the list at +1500 apiece.
