Robert Saleh’s betting odds of winning Coach of the Year are going up, although they’re still quite low

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh has a pivotal second season ahead of him. After going 4-13 in his first season helming the team, Saleh is expected to lead the Jets to a much-improved year thanks to the team’s influx of new additions and the anticipated progression of its core young players who were drafted in 2021.

It appears that the betting world is gaining faith in Saleh’s ability to lead the Jets to a successful season. Saleh’s odds of winning the NFL’s Coach of the Year award have improved quite a bit over the past three months.

As of May 19, Saleh’s odds of winning COY were +3000 at FanDuel Sportsbook, tying him with seven other coaches for 20th in the league out of 32 candidates.

But as we sit here today on August 23, Saleh’s odds have climbed to +2500. That ties Saleh for 14th-best with John Harbaugh, Mike Vrabel, Dennis Allen, and Ron Rivera.

Here are the current Coach of the Year odds at FanDuel Sportsbook:

  • Brandon Staley, LAC (+1400)
  • Brian Daboll, NYG (+1400)
  • Doug Pederson, JAX (+1600)
  • Kevin O’Connell, MIN (+1600)
  • Dan Campbell, DET (+1600)
  • Nathaniel Hackett, DEN (+1600)
  • Mike McDaniel, MIA (+2000)
  • Frank Reich, IND (+2000)
  • Matt LaFleur, GB (+2000)
  • Nick Sirianni, PHI (+2000)
  • Kevin Stefanski, CLE (+2000)
  • Josh McDaniels, LVR (+2000)
  • Kyle Shanahan, SF (+2000)
  • John Harbaugh, BAL (+2500)
  • Mike Vrabel, TEN (+2500)
  • Dennis Allen, NO (+2500)
  • Ron Rivera, WAS (+2500)
  • Robert Saleh, NYJ (+2500)
  • Sean McVay, LAR (+3000)
  • Mike Tomlin, PIT (+3000)
  • Sean McDermott, BUF (+3000)
  • Matt Eberflus, CHI (+3000)
  • Bill Belichick, NE (+3000)
  • Kliff Kingsbury, ARI (+3000)
  • Zac Taylor, CIN (+3000)
  • Todd Bowles, TB (+4000)
  • Lovie Smith, HOU (+4000)
  • Mike McCarthy, DAL (+4000)
  • Andy Reid, KC (+4000)
  • Matt Rhule, CAR (+4000)
  • Pete Carroll, SEA (+4000)
  • Arthur Smith, ATL (+4000)

Saleh, the 20th head coach in franchise history, is seeking to become the first Jets coach to win this award.

Forget about winning the award – it would be a rare accomplishment if Saleh were even considered for it. New York hasn’t had a coach receive a single vote for Coach of the Year since Eric Mangini placed second in the 2006 voting with three of the 50 votes. Sean Payton of the Saints took the award home that year.

I’d be very happy for Coach should he receive the award, truth is I couldn’t care less though.
If the team succeeds and improves then he will get recognized.
Right now I am concerned about the football IQ and discipline of this team. As I said elsewhere, I am a huge Saleh supporter, he is bringing a great culture and is responsible for FA’s wanting to play here. I just wonder if his “player-friendly” approach is resulting in enough accountability.
The same goes for holding his asst coaches responsible, especially Ullbrich.
