Andy Reid's odds of being fired (are very low)

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs are not going to fire Andy Reid this year. But where would Big Red be ranked on a list of most likely coach firings? The bookmaker Sportsbook ran the odds on each NFL head coach being fired this year and Andy Reid ends up at No. 21 on the list.

I find the ranking on this list interesting but we all know it's meaningless. I mean, even more meaningless than power rankings. There will be a handful of NFL head coaches fired either during this year or after. Sometimes that will be because the team is so bad they can't keep winning just two games each year (see: Herm Edwards). Sometimes it's something off the field like a personality conflict between the coach and GM (see: Todd Haley). And sometimes coaches get fired after just one year because that one year was so bad (see: Romeo Crennel).

NFL head coach firings happen for all kinds of reasons. There is no reason that Andy Reid would be fired this year.

Here's the whole list of odds:

  1. Jay Gruden (WSH) +250
  2. Gus Bradley (JAX) +1800
  3. Ken Whisenhunt (TENN) +750
  4. Joe Philbin (MIA) +1500
  5. Tom Coughlin (NYG) +3300
  6. Lovie Smith (TB) +2000
  7. Jeff Fisher (STL) +2500
  8. Mike Pettine (CLE) +550
  9. Jason Garrett (DAL) +5000
  10. Rex Ryan (BUF) +4500
  11. Jim Tomsula (SF) +1200
  12. Dan Quinn (ATL) +4500
  13. Todd Bowles (NYJ) +4000
  14. Marvin Lewis (CIN) +2700
  15. Chip Kelly (PHI) +2000
  16. Jack Del Rio (OAK) +3500
  17. Gary Kubiak (DEN) +6000
  18. John Fox (CHI) +3500
  19. Mike Zimmer (MIN) +3000
  20. Sean Payton (NO) +1500

  24. Mike Tomlin (PIT) +7500
  25. Bill O'Brien (HOU) +3000
  26. Mike McCoy (SD) +4000
  27. Bruce Arians (ARI) +10000
  28. Chuck Pagano (IND) +15000
  29. John Harbaugh (BAL) +10000
  30. Mike McCarthy (GB) +15000
