Zac Taylor Among Favorites to Be First NFL Head Coach Fired This Season

Taylor has the sixth-highest odds of being the first head coach fired in 2021

CINCINNATI — Bengals head coach Zac Taylor is hoping the third year is the charm in Cincinnati. He enters the 2021 season with a 6-25-1 record.   

The team made plenty of changes to their coaching staff and roster, but Taylor is clearly on the hot seat. 

Despite struggling in his first two seasons, he isn't the favored to be the first NFL head coach fired this season. In fact, Taylor isn't even in the top five according to recent odds released by BetOnline. 

Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy is the favorite (15/2), followed by Denver's Vic Fangio (8/1), Chicago's Matt Nagy (17/2), Jon Gruden of the Raiders (10/1) and Mike Zimmer in Minnesota (11/1). 

Kliff Kingsbury is tied with Taylor at 12/1 for the sixth-highest odds of being the first head coach fired this season.
