Ron Rivera: My intent is to coach again

The issue here is whether or not the Cowboys would go for him. The Carolina Panthers would like to have a word. The group is 5-7 this season. Even more astounding is the fact that four games were decided by a cumulative two yards.

Not to mention Tepper has recently been on record saying the team has no interest in Kap, despite his best friend Eric Reid being a member of the Panthers. Rivera had been the coach of the Panthers since 2011, and led the team to the Super Bowl during the 2015 season. Ron Rivera, a beloved coach and person - both by Charlotte and the people within the Panthers organization - was sacked with four games to go. Nevertheless, the Panthers are certain to overlook the playoffs for the third time in 4 seasons. In what started out slightly spicy, with the fired coach defending the ups-and-downs of nine seasons, Rivera said he was proud of the turnaround under his watch. Plenty of fans are fed up with the current configuration of the coaching staff, and want changes. "You don't want to get the opportunity this way, but I am granted that opportunity and I've got to make the most of that while I have this chance". "I'm hiring a person to win football games, okay?" "I think that's cool too, because Scotty, he's on the edge he's on the precipice, he's ready". I'm out there a lot - with charity stuff, things we do with this team.

"I thought Ron really did a fine job, and I mean that with the highest praise possible when I say 'fine.' He did a heck of a job, I thought".


When it came time to fix the offense, promoting Scott made sense to the former Panthers coach, despite Turner's inexperience.

This comes on the heels of the surprise dismissal of head coach Ron Rivera with just five games left in the 2019 season. However, Rivera no longer fit into Tepper's vision of the franchise's future.

In his ninth National Football League season, Newton was limited to two games because of a foot injury and is on Carolina's injured reserve.


"Our vision is to find the right mix of old-school discipline and toughness with modern and innovative processes", Tepper said.

"This is as a bad a day as I've been a part of in the NFL", Olsen told reporters, via Kevin Patra of NFL.com."To lose a coach and have a coaching change at the top, I've never gone through it before".
