New Odds Name David Beaty, Kliff Kingsbury Among Coaches Likely to be Fired First

NCAA Football: Texas Tech at Kansas

With the college football season less than three weeks away, odds makers are already betting on who is going to be the first head coach fired. With investigations swirling at Ohio State and Maryland, naturally, the top of the list is not a shocker. But there are two Big 12 coaches who find themselves near the top of the list.
