NFL Coach Of The Year Odds: Staley favored again

Mike Vrabel Tennessee Titans Head Coach 2021

The NFL Coach Of The Year odds for 2022 are out, and Chargers HC Brandon Staley again heads the early betting.

Staley was favorite when the odds came out in 2021, but didn’t get close to winning the award as his supremely talented team missed out on a postseason berth in that heartbreaking loss to Las Vegas in Week 18.

Instead it was Tennessee’s Mike Vrabel who was voted Coach Of The Year in 2021 as his team overcame a horrific slew of injuries to win the AFC South title and win the top seed in the AFC. Vrabel posted 36 of the 50 votes in the AP poll to win the award by a landslide. Next best was Green Bay’s Matt LaFleur with eight votes.

Behind Staley (+1500 or bet $100 to win $1500) we have Denver new boy Nathaniel Hackett at +1700. Then it’s Giants rookie Brian Daboll, Vikes hire Kevin O’Connell and Indy’s Frank Reich on +2000.

Also on +2000 are 49ers genius Kyle Shanahan and his protege Mike McDaniel – now with Miami. Vegas new boy Josh McDaniels is +2200 with his old boss Bill Belichick on +2500.

If you like a repeat of the 2021 results, then Tennessee Titans HC Mike Vrabel is currently sitting at +2500.

Who won NFL Coach Of The Year?

It pays to look at who won the award in recent years – it can give vital clues to key trends and patterns. The last 10 winners of NFL Coach Of The Year were:

  • 2021: Mike Vrabel (Tennessee Titans)
  • 2020: Kevin Stefanski (Cleveland Browns)
  • 2019: John Harbaugh (Baltimore Ravens)
  • 2018: Matt Nagy (Chicago Bears)
  • 2017: Sean McVay (Los Angeles Rams)
  • 2016: Jason Garrett (Dallas Cowboys)
  • 2015: Ron Rivera (Carolina Panthers)
  • 2014: Bruce Arians (Arizona Cardinals)
  • 2013: Ron Rivera (Carolina Panthers)
  • 2012: Bruce Arians (Indianapolis Colts)

If you do like the chances of Vrabel repeating, it’s worth noting that you have to go back to 1983 for the last time a coach won the award two straight years. That was when Joe Gibbs of Washington claimed the prize.

Don Shula has more Coach Of The Year awards than any other man with four in total, followed by Chuck Knox and Bill Belichick on three. Other multiple winners include Allie Sherman, George Halas, George Allen, Gibbs, Mike Ditka, Bill Parcells, Dan Reeves, Ron Rivera and Bruce Arians.

When is NFL Coach Of The Year decided?

One important thing you show know here – the post-season is irrelevant in voting for Coach Of The Year. It is based only on regular-season play.

You’ll also note that none of the last 10 winners of the award have gone on to win the Super Bowl that year. You have to go back to Belichick in 2003 for the last time that happened.

When is the award announced?

The award is now part of the NFL’s big Honors ceremony, which takes place during Super Bowl Week.

The next ceremony to announce the 2022 winner will likely take place Thursday February 9, 2023 in Glendale Arizona – three days out from Super Bowl LVII. The start time will likely be 9pm ET/6pm Pacific.

How to watch on TV

The Awards/Honors Ceremony will likely be televised by FOX, which has the rights to Super Bowl LVII. It will be simulcast on NFL Network.

Who is favored to win NFL Coach Of The Year?

Right now it is Brandon Staley of the Los Angeles Chargers at +1200, but it is a wide open betting line.
