After a 6 game losing streak and playoff hopes diminished, questions have swirled about if Ron Rivera would remain the Panthers Head Coach after the 2018 season. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Rivera won’t have worry about finding a new job in the offseason.
“As for the Panthers, new owner David Tepper is expected to be patient. The team already made a significant change, with Rivera taking over play-calling on defense. With one of the top play-callers in the NFL in charge of the unit now, Carolina’s D impressed in a loss to the Saints. The roster should get younger and faster next year, as well, and with Rivera in charge of the defense it should only improve.”
The Rivera led Panthers are looking to get back in the winning column this Sunday against the Falcons.
