Raiders next coach odds: Eric Bieniemy early favorite

The Las Vegas Raiders are expected to go on the offensive with their replacement for Jon Gruden, who resigned Monday following the disclosure of a string of inappropriate emails.

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy has been installed as the +600 favorite to be the Raiders’ next head coach by SportsBetting.ag. Bieniemy’s name comes as no surprise as he has been a finalist for several NFL openings over the past few years.

Gruden was hired to a 10-year contract largely for his reputation as an innovative offensive mind, and the top five candidates on SportsBetting.ag’s list are all current offensive coordinators in the NFL. Following Bieniemy are Buffalo’s Brian Daboll (+650), Carolina’s Joe Brady (+750), Dallas’ Kellen Moore (+750) and Tampa Bay’s Byron Leftwich (+900).

Also being offered at +900 is Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell and Bucs defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who is the top candidate on the list with previous NFL head coaching experience (Jets, 2015-18).

The sportsbook also included a few more entertaining options, including analysts Howie Long (+7500), Charles Woodson (+10000) and Tony Romo (+15000) along with former Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski (+50000).

Gruden served as a commentator for ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” beginning in 2009 before returning to the sideline with the Raiders in 2018. It will likely be difficult for him to return to the television booth in the wake of the offensive emails revealed to have been sent over a seven-year period while with ESPN.

SportsBetting.ag is offering a prop market on Gruden’s next job.
–Podcast host (-150)
–Work for Fox News (+300)
–NCAA TV analyst (+500)
–NFL TV analyst (+500)
–High school football coach (+1200)
–Member of NCAA coaching staff (+1200)
–Member of NFL coaching staff (+2500)
–TV game show host (+3300)

With Gruden technically resigning, the NFL has yet to see a coach get fired this season. However, Jacksonville’s Urban Meyer is the clear favorite to be the first one to be let go following his own off-field controversy over the past few weeks.

First coach fired odds:
–Urban Meyer, Jaguars (+100)
–Matt Nagy, Bears (+250)
–Joe Judge, Giants (+400)
–Vic Fangio, Broncos (+900)
–Mike Zimmer, Vikings (+1200)
–Brian Flores, Dolphins (+1800)
–Dan Campbell, Lions (+2500)
–Frank Reich, Colts (+2800)
–Ron Rivera, WFT (+2800)
–Zac Taylor, Bengals (+3300)
–Robert Saleh, Jets (+4000)
–David Culley, Texans (+5000)
–Mike Tomlin, Steelers (+5000)
