Matt Rhule +225 (Bet $100 to win $225)

To say Matt Rhule to Carolina hasn't worked out would be putting it lightly. In his first season, the Panthers went 5-11 With Teddy Bridgewater starting for them. At times the offense looked okay but still, it was a work in progress. Last year is where things went off the rails.

Instead of drafting a quarterback, he gave up multiple picks for Sam Darnold who started hot but then turned into a turnover machine again as the Panthers limped to a 5-12 record. Now there is a quarterback competition between Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, and Matt Corral.

His quarterback situation hasn't been great but still, after his success turning around both Temple and Baylor at the college level, most thought he would have an easier time transitioning to the league.

The Panthers are going nowhere fast and in all likelihood Rhule will get canned for it, likely sending him back to college ball.

Pete Caroll +350 (Bet $100 to win $350)

It was a good run in Seattle for Pete Caroll but it looks like his time may be ending very soon. Over 12 seasons, he is 119-73-1 with a Super Bowl Championship, another Super Bowl appearance, and nine playoff seasons.

Last year the Seahawks suffered an injury to Russell Wilson which essentially derailed their season as they ended up finishing 7-10, their first losing season since the 2011 season.

With Russ now in Denver, the plan is to start one of Geno Smith or Drew Lock. Woof. That's a recipe for a firing. Sure, they might be tanking for CJ Stroud or Bryce Young which is fine but do we really see a soon-to-be 71-year-old coach sticking around through a rebuild? I don't.
