Jimbo Fisher Leads Neal Brown, Others as Next College Football Coach Fired

NCAA Football: West Virginia at Texas

We are reaching the point in the college football season when coaches around the country start to get the boot, and of course there are some fan bases that are ready to see a change sooner rather than later.

One of the coaches with the hottest seats in the country is Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, who is 37-19 last he Aggies head coach and just 3-5 for the 2022 season. In fact, the only reason he isn’t looking for another job right now is the guaranteed money that he is owed. If A&M decided that it was time to cut the cord, it would cost them $86 million to do so.

Despite that, Vegas thinks he is most likely the next coach to be fired in college football, as BetOnline has Fisher listed at 3/1 odds.


Not far behind Fisher are a pair of Big 12 coaches, with the fifth and sixth best odds to be the next head coach in college football to be fired.

At 11/2 odds, West Virginia head coach Neal Brown comes in tied for the fourth-best odds to be the next head coach fired with California’s Justi Wilcox. West Virginia is currently 3-5 on the year and has never been better than 6-4 under Brown.

Just behind Brown is Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian, who comes in at 7/1 odds to be the next head coach fired, and his team is currently 5-3 and ranked No. 24 in the initial College Football Playoff rankings. However, nobody can evade the lofty expectations in Austin and if Sarksian turns in a 6-6 or 7-5 campaign, it might put him out of work after last season’s 5-7 debacle.


The final Big 12 coach on the list has his team playing better football as of late, as Oklahoma head coach Brent Venables comes in at 50/1 odds of being fired next. The Sooners are 5-3 and are looking for their third straight win on Saturday when they take on Baylor.
