The NFL season is in full gear, and with that comes wagering odds on the top head coach.
The New York Giants' Brian Daboll took home COY honors in his first season as head coach last year — marking the ninth time since 2000 that a rookie HC has won the award.
Considering most head coaches never repeat as COY — plus the fact that the Giants are 4-8 — it's no surprise that Daboll isn't currently listed as one of the top favorites. With that said, here are the newly updated NFL odds to win the 2023-24 Coach of the Year.

Favorites to win NFL Coach of the Year
Dan Campbell (+200)
Believe it or not, there was talk about Dan Campbell getting fired by the Detroit Lions early last year following a dismal 1-6 start to the season.
However, Campbell rallied the troops and nearly saw his Lions make the postseason, falling just short of the playoffs at 9-8. It was the first time since 2017 that Detroit ended the campaign with a winning record, marking a massive step up from Campbell's first year in the Motor City when the team went just 3-13.
HBO's Hard Knocks then raised his profile even more with his infamous speech about biting kneecaps. With Aaron Rodgers' departure from Green Bay creating a power vacuum in the NFC North, this award will be Campbell's if Detroit continues to build on its impressive 9-3 record and clinch the division for the first time since 1993.
DeMeco Ryans (+230)
In his first season as head coach, DeMeco Ryans is now third in COY odds following the Houston Texans 7-5 record entering Week 14.
The ex-Texans linebacker has been instrumental in revitalizing the Houston defense, while also aiding C.J. Stroud in his rookie year at quarterback. Ryans' Texans are undeniably ascending, with three consecutive seasons of achieving four wins or fewer clearly behind them and a potential playoff berth in the works.
Mike McDaniel (+600)
We all know how good Mike McDaniel's playcalling is, but his second season as Miami Dolphins HC comes down to whether or not the Phins can take the next step. Despite appearing in the playoffs with a 9-8 record in McDaniel's first season on the South Beach sidelines, Miami lost five of their final six regular season games last year.
This season, expectations are much higher... but Miami is definitely looking the part. The Dolphins are 9-3 on the year, which includes a 70-20 blowout win over Denver in Week 3.
Under McDaniel, Miami ranks first in total yards per game on offense. The Dolphins will look to continue their dominance as they're on their way to a first-place finish in the AFC East — something the franchise hasn't achieved since 2008.
