USC Head Coach Odds: 16.7% Chance Urban Meyer Becomes USC Head Coach

Rumors have been swirling around Urban Meyer ever since USC fired Clay Helton. It doesn’t help that the Jacksonville Jaguars were blown out by a Houston Texans team that oddsmakers gave have a better chance to go 0-17 than they’re giving Eric Bienemy to land the USC job.

Meyer has denied those claims, but oddsmakers still give him +500 odds to land the job. That equates to about a 16.7% implied chance he takes the USC job. Only Penn State head coach James Franklin and Cincinnati head coach Luke Fickell are given better odds to +450. That’s an implied chance of 18.2%. After those three, the next closest favorite is Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell. His +950 odds, are nearly double those of Meyer.

Urban Meyer can deny the interest all he wants. He denied interest in the Ohio State job, and in NFL jobs, and that’d he leave Florida. Even Nick Saban denied interest in the Alabama job when he was head coach of the Dolphins. Oddsmakers have no real concrete reason to believe Meyer won’t be the next permanent head coach at USC So, he’s going to remain among the favorites to land the job until a hire is made.
