The seventh NFL head coaching vacancy of the 2023 season was perhaps the most surprising to fans and legal online sportsbooks customers alike. Reports on Wednesday indicated that Super Bowl champion Pete Carroll was shown the door by Seattle Seahawks’ brass after the team missed the playoffs, leading us to wonder about Seattle Seahawks next head coach odds. Carroll leaves Seattle after 14 seasons with the club, winning Super Bowl XLVIII and 137 games across 227 games, while posting a 10-9 playoff record in the Emerald City.
Those reports were confirmed by a statement on the Seattle Seahawks official website.
Now that the former New York Jets, New England Patriots, USC and Seahawks head coach is out, it’s worth wondering who the first new coach in Seattle since 2010 will be. U.S. Betting Report broke down the odds on possible replacements for Carroll, starting with his former defensive coordinator in Seattle. You can’t get these Seattle Seahawks next head coach odds at U.S. sports betting apps, only at U.S. Betting Report.

Who Could Replace Pete Carroll In Seattle?
So if these odds were available at NFL betting sites, who would be atop the contenders?
The odds-on favorite in our Seattle Seahawks next head coach odds list is Dan Quinn, who served as Seattle’s defensive coordinator from 2013 to 2014. Before that, Quinn was an assistant coach with the franchise from 2009 to 2010. The former Atlanta Falcons head coach and current defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys is listed at +200 to replace Carroll.
Former Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel (+450) is up next, proving that one team’s discard could be another team’s valued asset. Vrabel was just fired this week after the 2023 season, which the Titans finished 6-11.

Coordinators And College Coaches Abound
Next, we have three NFL defensive coordinators – Mike Macdonald (Ravens), Steve Wilks (49ers) and Raheem Morris (Rams). They are all listed at +1200. The 49ers are Super Bowl favorites with ESPN BET Sportsbook at +225 odds. Morris was head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 209-11 and has bounced around a few organizations as a defensive assistant since. Wilks was head coach with the Arizona Cardinals for just one season, 2018, and just completed his first season with the Niners. Macdonald has not been an NFL head coach.
Rounding out our list as contenders for the Seahawks job are two college coaches, USC’s Lincoln Riley and Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh. We list both at +1500. Harbaugh just led the Michigan Wolverines to the College Football Playoff national championship on Monday with a 34-13 victory over Seattle’s own Washington Huskies. Harbaugh has been popping up in NFL coaching search rumors for a while.
One way or another, the Seahawks are in the market for the team’s first head coach since the 2010 offseason, with the man who posted a .606 win percentage across 14 seasons in Seattle being shown the door on Wednesday morning. The Seahawks had been +3500 longshots at BetMGM Sportsbook to win this year’s Super Bowl but they just barely missed the playoffs. Will they fare better under new leadership?
