NFL Coaches Hot Seat: First HC to Quit or Get Fired

There’s already some piping hot head coaching seats a couple months before the start of the 2022 NFL season.

If history repeats itself, we’ll see at least one coach canned before year’s end. 

SportsBetting has set odds for who will be the first coach fired, or first to resign, this season. 

The Panthers’ Matt Rhule leads the list while Dallas’ Mike McCarthy isn’t far behind. Pete Carroll, a potential candidate to resign at 70 years young, is third on the board.

Of note, for the first time in years, Bill Belichick outside of the last tier of longshot coaches to be fired first.
