Oddsmakers see high probability that Saturday could remain as Colts’ head coach

One day after one of the Colts' worst offensive performances this season, the team’s owner Jim Irsay made a big move, announcing on Monday that they had fired head coach Frank Reich, who had led the Colts since 2018 to an overall record of 41-35-1, including the playoffs.

But the Colts are just 3-5-1 to start the 2022 season, and it seems that the straw that broke the camel’s back was the loss against the New England Patriots (26-3) on Sunday.

Jeff Saturday, a sports analyst who played 13 seasons with the Colts, has taken the helm as interim head coach while the Colts ponder a permanent replacement – though oddsmakers at BetUS Sportsbook believe Saturday himself to be amongst the leading candidates for the head coaching job.

Saturday held the #2 slot in the odds ranking released by BetUS on Monday on who will take the head coaching job at Indianapolis. Saturday is listed at +450 odds, behind only Mike Kafka (+300) who is in his first season as offensive coordinator for the New York Giants.

Rounding out the top 5 candidates for the job, according to BetUS, are Greg Roman (+500), DeMeco Ryans (+600), and Kellen Moore (+700).
