Favorites to win the NFL Coach of the Year award
Brandon Staley (+1,400)
A defensive-minded head coach, Brandon Staley led the Chargers to a 9-8 record in his first season as HC in 2021, narrowly missing out on the playoffs.
The Chargers fell apart down the stretch in the 2021 season, losing three out of their last four games (including two OT losses). Staley could've easily been in the talks for COY recognition last season. It makes sense that he's the favorite this time around, considering Los Angeles should be even better this season after acquiring the likes of Khalil Mack and J.C. Jackson in the offseason.
Nathaniel Hackett (+1,600)
Hackett begins his first season as head coach in the NFL with the Denver Broncos, hoping to end their six-year playoff drought.
The 42-year-old was the Packers' offensive coordinator for the past three seasons. He helped forge Green Bay into finishing the 2020 campaign as the highest-scoring offense with star quarterback Aaron Rodgers at his disposal. Hackett will look to work the same magic with Russell Wilson now in Denver.
Mike McDaniel (+1,600)
Tied with Hackett at +1,600 is fellow first-year head coach Mike McDaniel.
McDaniel was an offensive assistant on the Atlanta Falcons team that nearly won the Super Bowl back in 2016, and eventually followed Kyle Shanahan to San Francisco to work as a run game coordinator and eventually was promoted to OC.
Under McDaniel's leadership, the Dolphins' offense has the potential to be dangerous, with Tua Tagovailoa throwing to speedy receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.

NFL COY FAQs
Mike Vrabel took home COY honors last year, as the Tennessee Titans went 12-5 and finished first in the AFC South.
The last time the Coach of the Year winner also won the Super Bowl in the same season was all the way back in 2003, when Bill Belichick's New England Patriots finished the regular season 14-2 and successfully defeated the Carolina Panthers for the Lombardi Trophy.
