The odds are out for first coach fired and Pro Football Weekly's Eric Edholm joins Will Brinson to break them down by Will Brinson @WillBrinson moments ago • 2 min read This sounds horrible when you say it out loud, but it's never too early to start looking at who might lose their job in the coming season. Put another way: there are always, every year, multiple coaches who head into the season with a hot seat in the NFL. The same is true across all sports, but the magnifying glass is such with professional football that Las Vegas even puts out odds on who will be relieved of their duties first.

Jackson himself is now 1-31 as the Browns’ head coach. That’s bad. Historically bad.According to Vegas, this futility has Jackson has the favorite to be the first head coach fired once the 2018 season comes calling. In fact, he’s the overwhelming favorite. With Cleveland having improved its roster leaps and bounds, Jackson’s leash just isn’t going to be anywhere near as long as it was last season. A slow start to 2018 will likely almost immediately lead to his ousting from Cleveland.Outside of Jackson, there’s not too many surprises here. Though, one certainly now has to wonder what Marvin Lewis has on the Cincinnati Bengals’ brass. Maybe an … [Read more...] about Hue Jackson is Vegas favorite to be first coach fired next season

Osorio, 57, had just presided over the most humiliating defeat in Mexico’s history, a 7-0 demolition by Chile in the quarterfinals of the Copa América, the world’s oldest international tournament. It was the sort of loss that gets a coach fired, especially in Mexico — provided Osorio didn’t quit first. “I went into the locker room, splashed cold water on my face, loosened my tie and told my team, ‘If … [Read more...] about He’s Got a Winning Record.

Spain in chaos 2 days before World Cup after coach fired News 13 Jun 2018, 20:49 IST 33 BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Some people in Spain agree that national team coach Julen Lopetegui had to go. Others believe the chaos on the eve of the World Cup just made a bad situation worse. Lopetegui was fired Wednesday, two days before Spain's opening match against Portugal, because he accepted a job Tuesday to coach Real Madrid next season."It is clear to me that this was poorly handled and that the national team will be harmed by it," Spain fan Jordi Casares said. "Madrid put its interests first, as did Lopetegui, and (Spanish federation president Luis) Rubiales was left in a very tough spot. Nobody thought about what was best for the national team." Television and radio commentator Manolo Lama, summing up the state of bewilderment caused by the decision, said the team's success will rely solely on the players.
