2023 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 Dan Campbell, whose Lions have a great opportunity to take the next step in their turnaround, Sean Payton, who takes over a Broncos team who may have been the biggest disappointment in the league last year, Robert Saleh, whose Jets could be a real threat if they do end up with Aaron Rodgers, and Matt Eberflus, who seemed to be getting the Bears on the right track in his first year last season.

Campbell is currently listed as the favorite to take home the award.

Dan Campbell, who is headed into his third season as head coach of the Lions, is the favorite to win 2023-24 NFL Coach of the Year with +850 odds. Campbell’s Lions went 3-13-1 in his first year but nearly made the playoffs last year at 9-8, notching Detroit’s first winning record since 2017. A $20 bet on Campbell to win the award would profit $170 and return $190.

Sean Payton (+900), Robert Saleh (+1200), Matt Eberflus (+1300), and Frank Reich (+1800) round out the top five contenders.

AFC vs NFC

A coach from the AFC has won NFL COY in three of the last four.

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 last season, 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
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
2013 Ron Rivera Panthers 12-4

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 and Brian Daboll’s respective records the past two seasons.

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