Betting Odds Released For Josh Heupel to Oklahoma

Recruiting Impact: Lincoln Riley to USC

 

With the college football world still reacting to Oklahoma and former head coach Lincoln Riley, more and more conversations are appearing in regards to finding Oklahoma’s replacement.

As candidates continue to garner attention, one of the names that have significance is Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel. Due to Heupel’s initial first-year success at Tennessee, combined with his previous ties to the University of Oklahoma, Heupel’s name has continually surfaced over the weekend. In a coaching projection from CBS Sports, Heupel was the first name listed as a replacement for Oklahoma.

However, there are also betting odds around the Oklahoma head coaching search. And while he isn’t at the top, Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel did make the cut.

Currently, according to Sportsbetting.ag, Heupel has the sixth-best odds to be the next Oklahoma head coach. As of Monday morning, Heupel’s odds to Oklahoma have been set at +800.

  1. When I read the news this morning about Lincoln Riley–I got “that sinking feeling” that I got when Pete Carroll left USC. Are we in for another big let down? Same scenario-7-5 season–4 and 4 in the SEC -first year head coach.
    I believe that Kiffin would have stayed–and I remember him later saying that it was a mistake to leave UT–we would have in the 20-teens–challenged and maybe would have won a SEC title. Danny White and the UT administration should act immediately to extend Heupel’s contract with a big raise. I believe that Heupel can develop UT into a team that will challenge and maybe win a SEC title in the 2020’s. I don’t think that we can go through another decade of lousy football.

    Thanks for listening,

    Richard
