Dan Quinn’s odds of being fired are 12-1, per BetOnline

Quinn is shockingly one of the coaches most expected to get canned after 2019.

Falcons fans have been optimistic about the team in 2019. The offensive line has been rebuilt, the young defense is healthier, and some ineffective coaches are now former coaches. Honestly, it feels like a great bounce-back year.

Vegas disagrees.

Knox Bardeen of 92.9 The Game pulled the betting odds for Quinn’s job security and they are rough.

Quinn is shockingly in the same group as quintessential underperformers like Jay Gruden, Pat Shurmer, Doug Marrone, and Bill O’Brien. While Gruden has rarely wrestled with competency, coaches like Marrone and O’Brien have at least recently made the playoffs.

Vegas is predicting another disaster season. We expect Quinn to be in serious trouble if he misses the playoffs. However, with the roster as-is, Atlanta should be competitive for a playoff spot.

Short of another rash of injuries, missing the playoffs means another coaching letdown. We noted earlier this offseason that Quinn is facing a make-or-break season when he named himself defensive coordinator. He knows the roster, he has roster control, and he’s an experienced defensive coordinator. All defensive failure lies strictly with Quinn.

So the bettors must not have liked Atlanta’s offseason moves. They were definitely bold but not 12-1 dangerous.
