Ron Rivera: Panthers Set to Name Rivera Head Coach
Ron Rivera will be the new head coach of the Carolina Panthers, according to Adam Shefter of ESPN. The former San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator has agreed to a deal that just needs some "finishing touches" before being officially announced by Carolina officials.
Nationalfootballpost.com also has confirmed the rumors:
"The former Chicago Bears linebacker is expected to be introduced in a press conference tonight.Rivera interviewed twice for the job with Panthers owner Jerry Richardson."
Rivera is a former Bears defensive coordinator who ran the 3-4 scheme in San Diego, but is also familiar with the 4-3, and would fit well with the current play-calling left behind by Fox.
The website goes on to say, "Rivera has learned a variety of defenses from Buddy Ryan and other mentors.A former second-round draft pick, he played for the Bears for nine seasons.Rivera has previous coaching stints with the Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles.The former Cal-Berkeley football standout has interviewed for several jobs in the past, but this is his first head coaching position."
