According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Charlie Strong is the current favorite to become Texas’ next head coach at 2/1 odds. Art Briles has the next-best odds at 9/2, while James Franklin is 5/1 and Mike Gundy is 7/1. Bill O’Brien is also 15/2 to become the Longhorns’ next coach.

Continuing with the odds, Chip Kelly, David Shaw and Jim Mora are all 10/1, respectively, while Jimbo Fisher is 15/1 and Jim Harbaugh and Mike Tomlin are both 20/1, respectively.

Strong has led Louisville to a 36-15 record since 2010, while Briles has gone 44-31 at Baylor since 2008, which includes an 11-1 record in 2013 and an upcoming appearance in the Fiesta Bowl. Franklin, meanwhile, has compiled a 23-15 record at Vanderbilt since 2011, which includes three straight bowl appearances. Mike Gundy knows Texas and the Big 12 well after leading Oklahoma State to a 77-37 record since 2005, while Bill O’Brien has gone 15-9 since taking over for Joe Paterno in 2012.

The hot name is David Shaw, who has done an outstanding job at Stanford since taking over for Harbaugh, but reports have stated that Shaw wants to stay at the university. Kelly, meanwhile, took over the Eagles in 2013 and Harbaugh just led the 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance this past February.
