The Los Angeles Rams finally pulled the plug on Jeff Fisher's rather underwhelming head coaching career with the team by firing him on Monday. BookMaker is offering a special prop on whom the Rams coach will be Week 1 next year. Here are the options.
Josh McDaniels, Patriots offensive coordinator (+275): Hard to argue with his success as a coordinator, but his ego reportedly was a big problem when McDaniels was fired in his second season as the Denver head coach with an 11-17 record in 2010. But that was a long time ago.
Kyle Shanahan, Falcons offensive coordinator (+275): Atlanta has the NFL's No. 1 offense, and Shanahan has some good genes has his father Mike won two Super Bowls in Denver with John Elway as his QB.
Jon Gruden, ESPN TV analyst (+650): The former Raiders and Buccaneers head coach won a Super Bowl in Tampa and is an offensive mind, which is what the Rams need. But Gruden seems content in the Monday Night Football booth. Perhaps $10 million a season would change that?
David Shaw, Stanford head coach (+700): Shaw has done a tremendous job following Jim Harbaugh at Stanford and had NFL assistant coaching experience with Philadelphia, Oakland and Baltimore before heading to college football.
Todd Haley, Steelers offensive coordinator (+750): Pittsburgh has one of the NFL's most explosive offenses, but Haley wouldn't bring a ton of buzz and was 19-26 as the Chiefs' head coach from 2009-11.
Jim Bob Cooter, Lions offensive coordinator (+850): Detroit's Matthew Stafford has played as well as any quarterback in the NFL since the Lions promoted Cooter to offensive coordinator midway through last season. But can you see someone named Jim Bob in Hollywood? Plus he's only 32.
Jim Harbaugh, Michigan head coach (+4000): Sorry, Rams fans, you are dreaming. While this would be the grand slam hire, Harbaugh is not leaving his alma mater after just two years -- not to mention two losses to Ohio State.
Also on BookMaker NFL odds, you can get the "field" at +175.
