    Sportsbook has Mike Tomlin at 29-1 odds as next NFL coach to be fired/resign

    Sportsbook has Mike Tomlin among top 10 of odds as next NFL coach to be fired/resign

    The Pittsburgh Steelers haven’t fired a head coach since Lyndon Johnson was president. At least one prominent sports gambling outlet isn’t dismissing the possibility it could happen in 2021.

    Not long after Sunday’s Super Bowl completed the 2020 NFL season, Sportsbettingdime.com released its odds for the champion of next year’s Super Bowl, for next season’s MVP and for the first coach to be fired or resign for the 2021 league year.

    Mike Tomlin was in the top 10 on the list, albeit barely. A bet on Tomlin to be the next coach to be fired or resign would pay 29-to-1, according to Sports Betting Dime.

    Tomlin is entering his 15th season as Steelers coach and never has had a losing season, but an aging roster combined with the Steelers’ finish to this past season — losing five of their final six, including a humiliating home playoff loss to the Cleveland Browns — has some questioning the long-term trajectory of the organization.

    The Steelers have had only three coaches — Chuck Noll, Bill Cowher and Tomlin — since Bill Austin was dismissed a day after completing a 2-11-1 season in 1968.

    The most likely coach, per SBD odds, to be fired or quit? The Denver Broncos’ Vic Fangio at 5-to-1. The Chicago Bears’ Matt Nagy (6-to-1), the Minnesota Vikings’ Mike Zimmer (8-to-1), the Cincinnati Bengals’ Zac Taylor (11-to-1) and the Arizona Cardinals’ Kliff Kingsbury (12-to-1) round out the top five.

    Also of note in the Sports Betting Dime odds is Ben Roethlisberger is listed as the No. 14 choice among MVP candidates at 45-to-1. The Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes is the favorite at 7-to-1.

    SBD, incidentally, likes the Steelers’ chances at next year’s Super Bowl more than some. It pegs the Steelers at 25-to-1, the ninth choice among the 32 NFL teams.

    Betonline.ag last week listed the Steelers among the bottom half of the league at 33-to-1.

    In other words it isn't happening...and that is appropriate for a Top 5 coach in the NFL
    Taking pride in the fact that I'm right so often and he is wrong so often, that Steel Maniac has to have me on "Ignore"

    That would be a waste of money.
    Rooney’s don’t care about winning in the post season so they will stick with the 10 best coach in the nfl for quite awhile.
    Update:
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and now 50% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    I bet those odds take a nose dive in December 2021. The problem with a bet like this is the word NEXT, not if he will be let go in 2021.
    The Steelers must do well in the 2021 and 2022 draft.

    Yes.. a grade B+ coach in the regular season ( wins ) but a F in the post season. To get a " special" guy like Tomlin is hard to find. Rooney will keep him as long as possible. Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder look for these type of coach's; There hard to find. Jay Gruden is still trying to get his dignity back. LOL

    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.

    Dolphin fans in the 90’s who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70’s...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    I would say B

    He's scores well on longevity and ( That's Rooney , and talent he has to work with ) and below average on X' and O's, the ability to hire and retain coordinators, the ability to manage diva players, and the ability to teach the game. Use of time outs, remain an issue. The playoffs record remains an issue. Oh, but he is great with the media.

    I hardly ever see sideline coaching with players, and when the camera zooms in he's rarely speaking. The Steelers can do better. The question remains, will they try? I want him to coach this year, as the 2022 draft looks like it has great potential, then simply let his contract run out and get better.

    Tomlin is an A, easily. The guy has never had a losing season, he has a Superbowl win, 2 Superbowl appearances, 7 divison title, 2 confrence championships, and a fantastic winning percentage. But sure his best quality is dealing with the media
