BetOnline has published their newest list looking at all 32 head coaches in the league, and their projected probabilities of each one winning the Coach of the Year award in 2020. Naturally, we were curious where the Falcons
Atlanta’s Dan Quinn falls in around the middle of the pack with 30/1 odds. He’s tied for the 18th-best odds along with Anthony Lynn, Matt LaFleur, Matt Nagy, Sean McVay and Sean Payton. McVay and Nagy each won the award in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Payton won the honor all the way back in 2006.
Quinn has never received a vote for the Coach of the Year award in his five seasons as Atlanta’s head man, so him coming out of 2020 as the winner would be more than a mild surprise. If it happens, however, it will mean that the Falcons likely achieved great things.
Bill Belichick (who has been named AP Coach of the Year three times) and Bruce Arians (two-time AP Coach of the Year winner) are the favorites with 12-1 odds.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Doug Marrone, Adam Gase and Bill O’Brien sit at the bottom with 50/1 odds.
