After the news that Doug Pederson will no longer be the head football coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, the focus has turned to who will be the Eagles next coach. Replacing Doug Pederson will be tough as he is the only Eagles coach to ever win a Super Bowl, but the Eagles have already interviewed over a dozen candidates including Robert Saleh, Joe Brady, and more. At FanDuel Sportsbook, you can wager on who you believe will be the Eagles’ next coach. Think the Eagles will make a splash and hire Joe Brady? Bet on him at +1100. Will they hire Cowboys’ offensive coordinator Kellen Moore? He is +500. Let’s take a deeper look.
Odds to be Philadelphia Eagles Next Head Coach
— PA Sportsbooks (@PASportsbooks) January 14, 2021
At FanDuel Sportsbook, there are odds posted on who will be the Eagles’ next head coach. Currently, Robert Saleh is the favorite at +200 to win, but the Eagles have interviewed well over a dozen candidates and there are 25 coaching candidates listed on the FanDuel odds board for betting. Some interesting candidates listed on this list are former Colts head coach Jim Caldwell, Alabama coach Nick Saban, and former Chargers coach Anthony Lynn. Let’s take a look at some candidates that could be the Eagles’ next coach.
Robert Saleh the favorite to be the Eagles Coach
49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh has been a hot candidate for head coaching positions all over the NFL, and he is bound to get a job this offseason. He is the current favorite to land the Eagles’ job at +200 on FanDuel Sportsbook. As you can see, Saleh is a fiery head coach who is a tremendous motivator. In addition, the 49ers have had some very good defenses under Saleh and a vast number of productive players. Another attractive part of Saleh is the likelihood that he would bring coaches from the 49ers staff, including an offensive coordinator that has worked with Kyle Shanahan, which is quite attractive.
Lincoln Riley is +700 to be the Eagles Head Coach
Should the Eagles go in the direction of hiring an offensive head coach, Lincoln Riley could be a possible candidate to land with the Eagles. Riley is currently +700 to be the Eagles next coach, but it would take quite an attractive offer for him to leave Oklahoma. Riley was rumored to have turned down the Dallas Cowboys job last offseason, and he has dominated the Big 12 for years with Heisman Trophy winners and finalists (including Eagles’ QB Jalen Hurts). While Riley is known for his offensive creativity in the passing game, Riley’s hidden talent is his ability to be creative in the running game, which was the Eagles’ strength at the end of 2020. If you believe the Eagles will hire Lincoln Riley, you can bet him at +700 on FanDuel Sportsbook.
