Ron Rivera: My intent is to coach again

Ron Rivera: My intent is to coach again

Rivera had been the coach of the Panthers since 2011, and led the group to the Tremendous Bowl through the 2015 season. "I can go on and on but most importantly; thank you for allowing me to be me", he wrote on his Instagram Stories.

Secondary coach Perry Fewell has been named interim head coach.

It was the Bears' third straight victory, keeping them in the mix for a playoff berth in the NFC, but head coach Matt Nagy hinted Smith could be missing for his team's final three games.

All things considered, Rivera will coach in the National Football League next season if he wants to.

"I don't want a bad person in there", Tepper added. I love coaching. Not just coaching because it's about winning football games, but coaching because you have an opportunity to impact young men and people.

Rivera, the winningest coach (76-63-1) in franchise history, happens to know a familiar face in NY, where Giants coach Pat Shurmur is on the hot seat. Asked to explain the timing of his decision, Tepper disclosed that out of respect for Rivera, he did not want to seek out other coaching candidates behind his back. With the schedule dwindling down, it looks like the Panthers have some work to do to pick up a few broken pieces. "I'm really just trying to do whatever I can to be successful versus Atlanta". "But now, you walk into a grocery store and you can see people wearing Luke Kuechly, Christian McCaffrey, or Cam Newton jerseys and I know I was part of that culture change". "I have this experience, so I know where to go, what to do and how to do it". The first step in this new direction was the firing of popular head coach Ron Rivera, doing so earlier rather than later for a more professional, "friendly" exit for the long-tenured head coach. For the first time, he will be responsible for calling offensive plays for the entire game. Look, I came here two years ago. "I think the biggest consistent narrative is how much he meant to guys".

During an interview with 670 The Score in Chicago this week, Rivera said he would consider "the right" college job.

Unfortunately, a head coach like Garrett with the kind of talent Dallas has on both sides of the football can only receive so many opportunities to prove himself before it's time to cut the chord and move on.
