Ex-Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel could be headed back to the New England Patriots after he won three Super Bowls with the franchise as a player as teams around the league line up for his services.
Vrabel, once a first-team All-Pro linebacker, made his name as a defensive expert. He led the Titans to an average of nine wins in six seasons, reached the AFC Championship Game in 2020, and won the Coach of the Year award in 2021.
Tennessee’s decision to cut ties instead of trading him allowed him to become one of the most sought-after coaches on the open market. But where exactly will such a decorated candidate end up? Below are the betting odds for Mike Vrabel’s next team.

Vrabel won three Super Bowls in New England as a player and is the obvious replacement for Bill Belichick. He’s also a defensive guy with strong intangibles but is much more of a player’s coach and will bring youthful energy and transparency the organization hasn’t experienced in decades. He’ll also have extra motivation to perform because of his ties to the franchise.
The Falcons need structure—Mike Vrabel brings structure. The Falcons finished 18th in points allowed but were flirting with a top-10 spot for most of the year and could become an elite crew under Vrabel. Meanwhile, Bijan Robinson, the eighth-overall pick last summer, was criminally underused, and Vrabel knows a thing or two about working with elite running backs after spending six seasons with Derrick Henry.
Again, Washington needs structure to start the new chapter of their franchise. Vrabel is a no-nonsense coach who can work with young players and also relate to the veterans on the team. This will be an attractive option for coaches, not just because of their resources, but because they’ll have the opportunity to leave a real mark on the franchise and potentially be there for over a decade if they find success.
Mike Vrabel was fired by the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday, January 9, shortly after the team finished a 6-11 campaign. That was Tennessee’s second straight losing season after they enjoyed 11 and 12-win seasons the two years before.
The same personality and intangibles Vrabel embodied as a player are reflected in his rigorous, disciplined coaching style. He won the 2021 Coach of the Year award and is known for helping defenses excel, especially against the run.
Although his Titans teams underperformed, Vrabel is still yet to work with even an average quarterback. He’s only 48 and already regarded as one of the better coaches in the league, and he could transform whatever franchise he ends up signing on with.
