Carolina Panthers land new coach!

ESPN is reporting that former San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera has agreed to become the Carolina Panthers' next head coach, league sources passing along that information to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Panthers are now putting the "finishing touches" on their agreement with Rivera, according to the network.

Rivera, a former linebacker with the Bears and a member of Chicago's Super Bowl-winning team in 1985, has been with the Chargers since midway through the 2008 season. Rivera also was the Bears' defensive coordinator from 2004 to '06.


  1. Did you see on Yahoo that the Broncos had an interview with John Fox but it was postponed due to the weather? Supposedly it was straight from Elway's twitter.

  2. I didn't see that Kev. I hope he gets the job. He's a good coach despite his record in Carolina.
