Should the Redskins look to hire newly unemployed coach Ron Rivera?

Should the Redskins look to hire newly unemployed coach Ron Rivera?

Rivera had a 76-63-1 record over nearly nine seasons in Carolina, highlighted by a 15-1 campaign in 2015 that yielded a trip to Super Bowl 50.

"Scott went out on a limb and found me and told the people here to bring me here and I'm thankful for that", Allen said.

Ron Rivera leaves the Panthers as the most successful coach in franchise history. We're going to go out and prove that we can win a football game this Sunday, and then we will move to the next objective. "Having gone through the things I've gone through, been where we've been, it gives me experience". The folks at SportsLine have given the New York Giants the best odds (2-1) to have Rivera in place as their head coach for the 2020 season. "It's a very unique situation", Turner said.

"I'm going to be honest with you, I'm kind of excited", he added, referencing potential coaching opportunities. It's just not who I am.

"I thought Ron did a really good job, and I say that with the highest possible praise when I say" good.

Make no mistake about it; the decision was not easy and Tepper, at times, appeared to get a little choked up as he talked about the man that was just as present in his community as he was on the football field.

Rivera made waves in November when he went for two, down eight points, on the road in Green Bay in the fourth quarter.

For the next owner thinking of giving Rivera another shot to coach in the National Football League, weighing his leadership and character against his role in those missed opportunities will be the pivotal calculus in whether he's coaching again in 2020. It has struggled near the goal-line with Carolina losing four games partly because of issues within its opponents' five-yard line.

"[Does] somebody want to ask me my biggest regret?" he prompted a room of reporters during a press conference on Wednesday. I mean afterall, this franchise caused one of the greatest to ever play the game, i.e. Barry Sanders, to retire early as he knew he'd never win in Detroit.

Rivera noted that his desire to leap right back into another gig if given a chance is to continue to influence the lives of young men. I think there's a. That might lead them to do something like promoting offensive coordinator Kellen Moore to head coach or making a serious push for Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley.
