Broncos coaching search: Odds on who will become Denver’s next head coach – The Denver Post

The favorite to become the Broncos’ next head coach is an offensive-minded individual, according to one oddsmaker.

Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett has +300 odds — meaning a $100 bet would win $300 — to lead Denver, according to MaximBet. The 42-year-old helped Green Bay to a 26.5-points-per-game average this season, fourth-most in the NFC. The Broncos, in contrast, put up just 19.7 points per game.

According to sports gambling site Covers.com, “After moving on from a grizzled, veteran defensive coach in (Vic) Fangio, it’s not a surprise to see mostly offensive coaches listed here, with (Dan) Quinn and Leslie Frazier two prominent exceptions.”

Tied for second on the list are Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan, both at +400. They’re followed by Patriots inside linebackers coach Jerod Mayo (+500), Rams OC Kevin O’Connell (+600), Packers QB coach Luke Getsy (+800) and Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy (+1,000).

There are some familiar names further down the list of 14 candidates. San Francisco head coach and Cherry Creek High School graduate Kyle Shanahan is 10th at +1,500. His father, former Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan, is 13th at +3,000. And Super Bowl 50-winning quarterback Peyton Manning is last on the list at +5,000.
