NFL Coach of the Year Odds
The two favorites to be named NFL Coach of the Year per the NFL futures odds have both won this award multiple times. Bill Belichick has been voted this honor three times in the last two decades, and Bruce Arians has won the award twice in the last eight years. Those two coaches were on opposite sides of the biggest move this offseason, and the play of Tom Brady could go a long way to determining the winner of this award in 2020.
John Harbaugh is the reigning NFL Coach of the Year, but it’s quite unlikely he claims this honor again. No coach has won this award in consecutive seasons since Joe Gibbs did it in the early 1980s, and the Ravens will probably need to win at least 14 games for Baltimore’s head coach to repeat.

If Bill Belichick is named NFL Coach of the Year one more time, he will tie the recently departed Don Shula as the most successful coach in the history of this award. Belichick was named the league’s top coach in 2003, 2007, and 2010, but he hasn’t been voted the best since that point even though he’s considered far and away the best coach in the league.
There has been a fatigue factor at work with Belichick given New England’s success year in and year out. He has only won this award when the Patriots have won at least 14 games in the regular season, but the bar should be lower this season after the departure of Brady. New England’s offense has more questions than ever during Belichick’s tenure, so a stalwart defensive performance and 12 wins might do the trick.
The acquisition of Brady has made the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a Super Bowl contender, and their NFL futures odds have dropped across the board. That has subsequently led to Bruce Arians’ odds declining too, and if he were to win this award, he would make history. Arians would become the first coach to earn this accolade with three separate teams.
Arians’ chances of being named NFL Coach of the Year aren’t great though. If Tampa Bay does end up winning 12 or more games, Brady will likely be given the credit and not Arians, so it will take a dominant season from the Buccaneers for him to claim his third trophy.
Mike McCarthy is in a great position. The former Super Bowl winner has taken over for Jason Garrett in Dallas, and the Cowboys are stacked on offense. Dak Prescott is coming off a career year, and the front office gave him another weapon to work with in CeeDee Lamb. A first-year head coach has won this award four times in the last nine seasons, and McCarthy stands a good chance of making this offense much better.
It’s crazy to think that Andy Reid has only been named Coach of the Year once given his success over the last two decades. Reid has a .618 winning percentage in the regular season during his coaching career, yet he hasn’t won this award since leading Philadelphia to a 12-4 record in 2002. Kansas City will be one of the best teams in the league again this year, and Reid could receive a groundswell of support given his history and reputation around the NFL.
Kevin Stefanski is an interesting pick, and he has the same odds as Reid. Stefanski is taking over Cleveland after the Browns fell well short of expectations last year, yet there is no doubt that this team has plenty of talent. If Baker Mayfield can improve his decision making, this team could take off and that would make Stefanski a strong candidate given Cleveland’s abysmal record since their return.
