As fans continue to experience turmoil in Morgantown and Norman, both head coach Neal Brown and head coach Brent Venables were given odds to be the next college football coach fired.
These odds come from BetOnline, West Virginia’s Neal Brown was given 19/2 odds to be the next head coach fired, while Brent Venables checks in with 22/1 odds to be fired. Joining them on the list of potential “next” coach firings, in order is:
Auburn’s Bryan Harsin (10/11)
South Florida’s Jeff Scott (7/2)
Stanford’s David Shaw (6/1)
Navy’s Ken Niumatalolo (7/1)
Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz (7/1)
Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher (19/2)
Neal Brown (19/2)
Missouri’s Eli Drinkwitz (10/1)
Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald (11/1)
Louisville’s Scott Satterfield (22/1)
Brent Venables (22/1)
and Notre Dame’s Marcus Freeman (50/1)
It should be noted that while both Neal Brown and Brent Venables made the list, both programs are coming off of solid wins. The Mountaineers beat the Baylor Bears 43-40 last Thursday in a massive bounce-back game. The Sooners also beat a sneaky good Kansas team 52-42 last Saturday in a need-to-win game for their first Big 12 victory of the season.
With both teams underwhelming this season it seems that changes could be made as the year progresses, but in the meantime, both programs are riding out the storm.
Oklahoma is on a bye this week before a showdown on October 29th with Iowa State and their impressive defense, while West Virginia meets Texas Tech this Saturday.
