Carolina Panthers fire coach Ron Rivera after almost 9 years

Ron Rivera has been sacked by the Carolina Panthers

The Panthers announced Tuesday afternoon that they have fired their head coach since 2011 following a 29-21 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 13.

Since that Super Bowl appearance, where his team lost to the Denver Broncos, Rivera led the Panthers to the playoffs four times but has only made it to the postseason once in the last four years and lost in the Wild Card game in 2017.

Others said they will miss the coach who took the Panthers to a Super Bowl, even if they didn't win. Newton's health was a continuing factor in 2019 - he played in just two games and looked bad before he was place on injured reserve with a foot injury.

The Panthers are now 5-7 on the season, three games out of the final wild card spot. I wish him the best.

Rivera was the AP Coach of the Year in 2013 and 2015.

The Carolina Panthers decided not to wait until the end of the season to evaluate their coaching staff.

The meeting kicked off with talk around the new NAFTA, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. They are due back in the US on Thursday.

Tepper is in the second year of owning the team and made the decision to retain Rivera following the 2018 season, despite the team enduring a seven-game losing streak after a 6-2 start to the year.

Rivera's firing could have ramifications outside the Panthers organization.

Ron Rivera has been a huge proponent for Cam Newton over the years, and there is a chance that his departure opens the door for Newton to depart the team as well. In the (almost) two seasons since Tepper purchased the team, the Panthers under Rivera had gone 12-16.

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

Allen has gone 5-5 as the Panthers' starter, completing a respectable 61.5 percent of his passes while averaging one interception per game.

Tepper said the team will hire an assistant general manager and vice president of football operations. "We all must recognize that this is the first step in a process, but we are committed to building and maintaining a championship culture for our team and our fans".
