Dabo Swinney is Not the Favorite to Be Alabama’s Next Head Coach; Seahawks and Harbaugh Odds Too

Holy cow…what an afternoon.

Just when we had finished processing the shock of Seattle’s announcement that Pete Carrol would not return as head coach next season, the bomb dropped.

Nick Saban is retiring from his post at Alabama.

Goodness gracious, let’s hope we don’t see any Bill Belichick news today or the football coaching chasm might implode.

SportsBetting quickly set odds for both vacancies in the collegiate and NFL ranks. 

There are 22 names on the Seahawks list (although the last two are just for fun), led by former Seahawks defensive coordinator and the mastermind behind the Legion of Boom, Dan Quinn.

A whopping 36 candidates and their respective odds adorn the Alabama next coach list. 

Saban disciples Dan Lanning and Lane Kiffin have the best and third-best odds, respectively,  while former Alabama player and coach Dabo Swinney is second on the board.

Oh, and to get a Harbaugh mention in here it’s worth noting that his odds to leave the NCAA for the NFL continue to improve (NFL opened -150 last week).
