First one down. I thought he was a good coach, but the team has not responded to him this year. In fact, there were rumors that he may get fired after last year. The coaching staff was caught by surprise by the firing and didn't expect it.

Panthers fired coach Ron Rivera. In the midst of his ninth season with the Panthers, Rivera had been the seventh-longest tenured head coach in the NFL. A parting of ways was beginning to look like a strong possibility in the offseason, but it is rather odd timing with four games remaining. The Panthers clearly want to get a jump on the league in the research-and-interview department. With the Panthers purchased by hedge fund billionaire David Tepper in May 2018, "Riverboat Ron" and his old school ways were in conflict with his new owner's philosophy. It was probably time for a shakeup regardless of who was paying the bills. The Panthers have reached the playoffs just one time since their 2015-16 Super Bowl appearance, winning zero postseason games. Rivera is sent packing with three NFC South titles. If he doesn't get another head-coaching gig, Rivera will be in high demand as a defensive coordinator.
