First NFL Head Coach Fired Odds: Mike McCarthy Now the Favorite to Get Fired First

Gasp! Mike McCarthy isn't a good coach? Color me surprised. How could anyone have known this after watching McCarthy halt an Aaron Rodgers in his prime from any kind of postseason success after their 2010 Super Bowl.

Last year he went 12-5 in the regular season before getting bounced in the playoffs in the first round. Now, with Dak Prescott out of the picture for the next few weeks, things can get rough in Dallas pretty quickly.

Would Jerry Jones pull the plug on McCarthy this year? Well, according to the First NFL head coach fired odds, McCarthy is now the favorite to get let go.

Mike McCarthy +350 (Bet $100 to win $350)

Mike McCarthy is the favorite to get let go despite having a 12-7 record in 19 games coached with the Cowboys (including the playoffs). Jerry Jones is usually insanely loyal to coaches though as Jason Garrett spent 10 years as Dallas coach despite winning just two playoff games over that span.

Perhaps, Jerry feels the pressure more with this team's core getting a little older. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott aren't young pups anymore, and it's been nearly 28 years since their last Super Bowl. The 90s are a long way away, he knows he needs to find some success and quickly.

Matt Rhule +375 (Bet $100 to win $375)

Matt Rhule hasn't worked out in Carolina despite turning both Baylor and Temple around at the college level. Rhule went all in to bring in Sam Darnold as a reclamation project and it did not go well. He's essentially doing the same thing with Baker Mayfield right now, and it feels like everyone knows where this road is headed.

He's 10-24 as the Panthers coach and after starting 3-0 last year, he is now just 2-13 in his last 15 games. Carolina could use a fresh start, and it's a matter of when not if for Matt Rhule to get let go. Maybe he can revive Nebraska next year!
