When you look across the NFL as we get closer to the Super Bowl, there are plenty of “Zaddies” to look at as they coach the guys from the sidelines. However, not all of them have what it takes to win a Lombardi.
It’s important to note that looks are not everything in this business and the only daddies worth paying attention to are the ones en route to success, aka the ones with the better Super Bowl odds.
Here are some of the hottest coaches in the NFL today that are actually worth your time (and mine).
Let’s check the latest NFL news, stats, injury reports, and NFL lines. We’ve plenty of Vegas NFL picks for NFL Divisional Round Playoffs Games.
Consider this my 5 leg Super Bowl parlay for all-around coaching goodness.
1. Nick Sirianni, Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach
Easy on the eyes and built for success, Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni comes in at No. 1 on the charts.
‘Fly, Eagles Fly’, baby.
I am no Eagles fan but if you’re ever fortunate enough to be in the presence of Sirianni, then those should be the only words coming out of your mouth.
Philadelphia hit the jackpot when they hired 41-year-old Sirianni as their head coach back in 2021 as he’s taken the Eagles to a 23-11 record in just two seasons. He currently remains atop of the league with a 14-3 record to cap off the 2022 regular season as they head into the divisional round of playoffs fresh off a bye week.
Sirianni’s Eagles are on tap to take on the New York Giants this Saturday with an 8:15 PM kickoff.
According to BetUS, the Eagles have the third-best odds to WIN the Super Bowl this season at +500––that’s HOT.
2. Sean McDermott, Buffalo Bills Head Coach
That brings us to Bills head coach Sean McDermott, who is not only aging like fine wine but has built a dynasty franchise up in Buffalo, New York.
Sure, McDermott is a little bit older at 48, but young ladies nowadays love an older mature man. Not only has McDermott taken the Bills to a postseason five times, but his Bills (12-3) clinched the AFC East title for the third-straight season with a win over the Chicago Bears, making them back-to-back-to-back AFC East Champions!
Following a Wild Card win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, McDermott and the Bills host the Cincinnati Bengals this weekend in the NFL Divisional round.
Buffalo also currently sits in the No. 2 slot with the second-best odds to win Super Bowl LVII at +350, per BetUS.

3. Kyle Shanahan, San Francisco 49ers Head Coach
I can’t leave out the NFL’s offensive genius and head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, Kyle Shanahan, who has turned Mr. Irrelevant, Brock Purdy, into one of the league’s top quarterbacks through just five games going 5-0.
What makes the 43-year-old so hot is his natural eye for talent and dialing up an effective offensive scheme no matter what he has to work with. To no surprise, the 49ers have been cursed with injuries this season, especially at quarterback. But Shanahan didn’t let having to adjust his offense to three different play-callers this season stop him from making another playoff run.
Shanahan’s addition of running back Christian McCaffrey in the midst of the season was another great piece of work, giving himself even more ways to get creative with the Niners’ offense.
The 49ers, who have the fourth-best chance at winning the Super Bowl (+400), will play the winner of Monday night’s Wild Card matchup between the Cowboys and Buccaneers next Sunday night.

4. Dan Quinn, Dallas Cowboys Defensive Coordinator
Clearly, we are here for the DILFS.
Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator and Hell’s Angels leader, Dan Quinn, is really hard to overlook when it comes to pro football.
Sure, he didn’t have much success as the former Atlanta Falcons head coach. But he has been a thriving daddy in Dallas.
Since joining the Cowboys in 2021 52-year-old Quinn has brought life back into the defense in Dallas. Over the last two seasons under Quinn’s defensive, Dallas has become an NFL leader in takeaways and sacks, and has seen two playoff appearances with a 24-10 record.
Just like the last offseason, Quinn is already a strong candidate for head coaching jobs. However, it will be interesting to see if he takes one because he seems to be back in his prime in Dallas and that’s hard to walk away from.
Quinn is the perfect mixture of a player’s coach and a hot head and I don’t think there is a single player in the league that has one bad thing to say about him.
The Cowboys play the Buccaneers for the last matchup of the Wild Card round. The winner faces the 49ers. Dallas has the fifth-best shot at winning Super Bowl LVII at +1400.

5. Raheem Morris, Los Angeles Rams Defensive Coordinator
Excuse me, but how does one focus when that face is looking at you?!
I would have loved to rank the LA Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris higher on the list but after finishing the 2022 regular season just 5-12, it’s hard to do that.
But that doesn’t mean Morris, 46, isn’t equipped for success.
Morris, another defensive guru who is a hot candidate for the vacant head coaching jobs in 2023, has tons of experience under his belt on both sides of the ball–this includes two Super Bowl wins (HOT!!!).
His most recent Super Bowl run came just last year in his first season with LA when the Rams defeated the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI.
Prior to that, Morris spent six seasons with the Falcons where he was credited for Matt Ryan’s 2016 MVP season as Atlanta’s assistant HC/WR coach.
Morris is experienced and as networked as it gets, making him overdue for another head coaching stint.
