Wanna bet on who will be named Texas’ next coach? Well, you can do that.

Bovada released its odds on who will replace Mack Brown and Louisville’s Charlie Strong is leading the pack at 2/1. Baylor’s Art Briles follows at 9/2 and Vanderbilt’s James Franklin rounds out the top 3 at 5/1.

Here are all of the odds:

Charlie Strong 2/1
Art Briles 9/2
James Franklin 5/1
Mike Gundy 7/1
Bill O'Brien 15/2
Chip Kelly 10/1
David Shaw 10/1
Jim Mora 10/1
Jimbo Fisher 15/1
Jim Harbaugh 20/1
Mike Tomlin 20/1

Franklin was asked about the Texas speculation on Monday and avoided the question by saying he was concentrating on Vanderbilt and its bowl game against Houston.

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly shot down rumors they might be interested in the position.

Who do you think will be Texas’ next coach?
