2024 NFL Coach of the Year Award Odds & Favorites

The NFL Coach of the Year award is not always awarded to the best head coach in the league. Often, it goes to the coach who turned around a bad team early in his tenure, or one whose team still won a lot of games while playing without some of their stars.

It’s hard to predict which coaches will see their teams suffer through some bad injury luck, but it is easy to identify the candidates to turn around bad or underachieving teams. This is why you see coaches like Jim Harbaugh, who takes on a Chargers team who has underachieved throughout Justin Herbert’s career, Raheem Morris, who’s entering his first year as Falcons head coach and inherits a very talented roster, Shane Steichen, who nearly made the playoffs last season while having to start a backup QB most of the year, and Jonathan Gannon, whose Cardinals will look to improve on a lousy season they played mostly without Kyler Murray.

AFC vs NFC

A coach from the AFC has won NFL COY in four of the last five seasons. Another AFC coach is favored to win it this year in Jim Harbaugh.

Odds for Past Winners

Since 1991, all but one NFL Coach of the Year winner has led their team to at least ten wins in taking home the honor. The lone winner without ten wins was Brian Daboll two seasons ago, whose Giants only went 9-7-1. Daboll’s turnaround was still significant enough, as he took over a team that went 4-13 the previous season and made a QB who had firmly been labeled a bust look very serviceable.

The only other notable from that streak above is Bruce Arians, who led the Colts to a 9-3 record as head coach after taking over for Chuck Pagano after he stepped away for health reasons. The Colts did still win 11 games, though.

Past Coach of the Year Winners

Year Coach of the Year Team Record
2023 Kevin Stefanski (2) Browns 11-6
2022 Brian Daboll Giants 9-7-1
2021 Mike Vrabel Titans 12-5
2020 Kevin Stefanski Browns 11-5
2019 John Harbaugh Ravens 14-2
2018 Matt Nagy Bears 12-4
2017 Sean McVay Rams 11-5
2016 Jason Garrett Cowboys 13-3
2015 Ron Rivera (2) Panthers 15-1
2014 Bruce Arians (2) Cardinals 11-5

The 2021-22 NFL season was the first time we saw the regular season schedule expanded to 18 weeks, with each team playing 17 games. This is why you see the extra game in Mike Vrabel, Brian Daboll, and Kevin Stefanski’s (2023) respective records the past three seasons.

We have not seen a coach win the honor in back-to-back years since Joe Gibbs in 1982 and 1983.
