Ed Orgeron, Hue Jackson favored to be first coaches fired

Hue Jackson

Football season is still roughly a month away from kicking off, but there are already a number of coaches planted firmly on the hot seat — at least in the eyes of oddsmakers.

According to the latest odds released by BetOnline.AG sports book, Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson and LSU’s Ed Orgeron are two coaches who had better bring their A-game right from the opening snap in Week 1. The book lists Orgeron as the most likely SEC coach to be the first fired, and Jackson takes home that “honor” in the NFL.

Orgeron has a record of 15-6 since he took over as the head coach of LSU in 2016, and players seem to enjoy playing for him. He’s a high-energy guy who has been known to use some absolutely insane motivational tactics, but we know how competitive SEC football is. The Tigers won the Citrus Bowl in 2016 and ended their season with a loss in the same game last year, so Orgeron’s team will have to shown signs of improvement after a 9-4 season.

Jackson’s situation is a bit more obvious. The Browns have stuck with him despite winning just one game over the past two seasons, and they brought in a new veteran quarterback in Tyrod Taylor and drafted Baker Mayfield early in the first round. Another disastrous season would almost certainly be the end of the road for Jackson in Cleveland.
