Jay Gruden on the hot seat? Ask Vegas oddsmakers
If you’ve ever wanted to bet on the job stability of NFL head coaches, you’re in luck.
The sports book Bovada released odds for which NFL coach will “leave his post,” which presumably covers both being fired or choosing to step down.
Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden comes in eighth on the list at +1600, or 16 to 1. The Dallas Cowboys’ Jason Garrett, who has long been speculated to be on the hot seat, tops the list at +260, or about 5 to 2.

The Redskins are 2-2 after a 43-19 drubbing at the hands of the New Orleans Saints on Monday. As he often does after a loss, Gruden shouldered responsibility, and some wonder if this season will be his last in Washington.
