Well a set of betting odds from are out for who will be Nebraska’s next head football coach.

Here is the list:

Matt Campbell Iowa State HC: +350 - 22.2%
Lance Leipold Kansas HC: +500 - 16.67%
Mickey Joseph Nebraska Interim HC: +700 - 12.5%
Mark Stoops Kentucky HC: +700 - 12.5%
Luke Fickell Cincinnati HC: +900 - 10%
Bill O’Brien Alabama OC: +1000 - 9.09%
Urban Meyer FOX Sports: +1200 - 7.69%
Matt Rhule Panthers HC: +1500 - 6.25%
Dave Aranda Baylor HC: +2000 - 4.76%
Jim Leonhard Wisconsin DC: +2500 - 3.85%
The Field: +550 - 15.38%

It is not a surprise that Matt Campbell is at the top of the list. A lot of it makes sense. The same is said for Lance Leipold.

What really surprised me was how high Mark Stoops is at this point. I would be extremely surprised if Mark Stoops would be interested in leaving a SEC job with little pressure for the Nebraska.

Luke Fickell is another one that I believe is not coming. He is waiting out for one of the big jobs to come up. Nebraska is not that job.
