Jay Wright Not the Favorite To Be Sixers Next Head Coach

Doc Rivers was dismissed of his duties as 76ers head coach Tuesday.

Many expected this to happen following Philly’s collapse in the Boston series, but many probably wouldn’t have guessed who the oddsmakers have made the favorite to replace Rivers.

SportsBetting had JJ Redick at the top of the list of candidates. Redick, a former Sixer, recently interviewed for the Raptors coaching vacancy, and he’s close with Joel Embiid. 

Other usual suspects adorn the odds board, but perhaps the most intriguing for Philadelphia fans is former Villanova head man Jay Wright. 

You can see the full list of names below, which hilariously includes Allen Iverson, as well as updated “next coach” odds for the Suns.
