BetOnline has Billy Napier as the favorite to land UF gig

Potential candidates to replace Dan Mullen at UF include names like Lane Kiffin, Bob Stoops and Billy Napier.

BetOnline has released its odds on who will become Dan Mullen’s replacement as the next head football coach at Florida.

The offshore betting shop opened Louisiana’s Billy Napier as the +350 favorite. Within the last hour, BetOnline has adjusted to Napier to the +140 ‘chalk.’

The next-shortest odds belong to Ole Miss HC Lane Kiffin (+500). Oregon HC Mario Cristobal initially was third on this list with +550 odds. However, in the last hour, Cristobal has moved to +900 odds.

The opening odds from earlier today had former Oklahoma HC and Florida DC (from 1996-98) Bob Stoops at +800, but he’s now at 10/1 (or +1000). Bob’s brother Mark, the Kentucky HC, opened at +800 and remains there. Ditto for Penn St. HC James Franklin.

The coaches with the next-shortest odds include the likes of Cincinnati HC Luke Fickell (10/1), Iowa St. HC Matt Campbell (12/1), Dallas Cowboys DC Dan Quinn (16/1), Alabama OC Bill O’Brien (16/1) and Wake Forest HC Dave Clawson (16/1).

Why on earth BetOnline would choose to put Deion Sanders on the board is beyond me, but the Jackson St. HC is at 25/1. Coastal Carolina HC Jamey Chadwell also has 25/1 odds.

Urban Meyer (50/1) and Tim Tebow (100/1) are also on the board.

I broke down the candidates for the Florida job in yesterday’s article on Mullen’s dismissal and in a piece two weeks ago after Mullen fired DC Todd Grantham.
