Ron Rivera believes he will 'coach again' after being fired by Panthers

Ron Rivera believes he will 'coach again' after being fired by Panthers

The 57-year-old's position came under fierce scrutiny after the Panthers crashed to a 29-21 home defeat against 3-9 Washington on Sunday.

One thing both sites seem to agree on - former Pittsburgh Steelers coach and current CBS analyst Bill Cowher is very unlikely to be roaming the Carolina sideline next season (SportsLine 50-1; BetOnline 100-1).

The Carolina Panthers have announced Ron Rivera is fired as head coach, meaning it is now searching for the next Panthers head coach.

Rivera held a press conference Wednesday to express his desire to continue coaching.

Three Times Zelensky Mildly Pushed Back On Trump In New Interview
This is not the first time Zelenskiy denied the accusation of wrongdoing regarding a phone call between him and President Trump. During the interview, Zelenskiy said he "never talked to the President from the position of a quid pro quo ".

After the outpouring from players following his firing, it's clear that Rivera earned respect through his nine years as a head coach in Carolina. "For me to have that type of presence, it just reminds me's right", he said, according to ESPN.

"I do believe I will get another opportunity, and I will coach again", he said, laughing that he's taking the next four weeks off before getting back to work.

Panthers owner David Tepper said in a statement that "I believe this is the best decision for the long-term success of our team". He took the team to the Super Bowl during the 2015 season and led the team to a 15-1 season behind quarterback Cam Newton's MVP-winning year. "Too good of a man". "He's been a great guy and I really did appreciate it".

For the next owner thinking of giving Rivera another shot to coach in the National Football League, weighing his leadership and character against his role in those missed opportunities will be the pivotal calculus in whether he's coaching again in 2020. I wish him the best. "I can go on and on but most importantly; thank you for allowing me to be me", he wrote on his Instagram Stories. "I had a general manager that shared the same philosophy I did and that was we had to find our franchise quarterback, protect our franchise quarterback and put playmakers around him - we had to play downhill football and we were going to go from there". His favorite Panther of all time is Chad Cota and he once AIM chatted with Kevin Greene.
