If you believed everything you read, saw on TV, or heard from sports experts, the Denver Broncos would either have five head coaches or none… Conflicting reports all over the sports world have Broncos fans with little factual knowledge when it comes to who will be the next head coach. However, the folks in Vegas have their opinions…

Sean Payton has the best odds at -110 (meaning a $110 bet would win $100) to become the head man in Denver, according to Draftkings Sportsbook on Tuesday.

Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is next at +275, followed by 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans (+400), Broncos interim head coach Jerry Rosburg (+1,200), former Lions coach Jim Caldwell (+1,500), former Stanford coach David Shaw (+1,500) and Denver defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero (+1,800).

Some notable longshots on the list include former Broncos quarterbacks Peyton Manning (+10,000) and John Elway (+15,000), former rceiver Jerry Rice (+15,000) and Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe (+15,000).
