Panthers give coach Ron Rivera 2-year contract extension
09 January, 2018, 02:00 | Author: Laura Christensen
According to Ian Rapoport and Tiffany Blackmon of NFL Network, the Carolina Panthers have extended head coach Ron Rivera's contract to a two-year, $15.5 million deal. But he led them to an 11-5 record in 2017, and they've made the playoffs four times in the past five years. Carolina reached its second Super Bowl but lost to the Denver Broncos. Rivera is receiving the vote of confidence just a day before taking on the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Wild Card game. Panthers president Danny Morrison resigned previous year and general manager Dave Gettleman was sacked on the eve of training camp by team owner Jerry Richardson.
Rumours began Friday evening that the Panthers were looking to extend the contract of head coach Ron Rivera.
Locking up Rivera does provide some stability going forward for the Panthers, who owner Jerry Richardson said he will sell after being accused of workplace misconduct this season. It's unclear if the new owners will keep the team in Charlotte. Carolina's defense finished third in the National Football League with 50 sacks, and the Panthers were the only team in the National Football League to not allow an individual 100-yard rusher in any game this season.
The Panthers finished an NFL-best 15-1 during the 2015 regular season, with Cam Newton winning MVP honors. They are making their fourth playoff appearance in Rivera's seven years at the helm. "And I really appreciate the support we've gotten from our fans in the Carolinas".
This season, Rivera has guided the Panthers to an 11-5 record and a playoff berth.
The Panthers have developed plenty of stars under Rivera. Carolina needs skill-position players, and its offensive line left Newton to pick himself up far too many times this year. The Chicago Bears, for whom Rivera both played and coached, are among the teams searching.
