Panthers release head coach Ron Rivera after nine seasons

Carolina Panthers part ways with head coach Ron Rivera

On his podcast "Nothing Personal with David Samson", Samson discusses the latest breaking news out of the National Football League, the firing of Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera, who has been with the team since 2011.

The 2019 season has featured the team losing their starting quarterback in Cam Newton, as well as numerous other starters, including kicker Graham Gano and defensive lineman Kawaan Short.

Some teams may prefer to avoid giving Rivera this much responsibility after seeing how things ended in Carolina since dating back to last season, this team arguably deserved to be in the conversation of a true playoff contender. I wish him the best.

Speculation suggested the 57-year-old affectionately known as "Riverboat Ron" was on borrowed time in Carolina because of his resistance to analytics. Rivera won the NFL's Coach of the Year award in 2013 and 2015, and it was more Carolina's recent struggles that set Tepper looking for somebody else.

Some on social media believe another team will quickly hire Rivera. "We have a game coming up on Sunday" at Atlanta.

It had been expected that Qualcomm would announce its latest chip at the company's "Snapdragon Tech Summit" event in Hawaii. New Android phones haven't been announced for 2020, but the chip that's likely to power many of them has been named.

Rivera did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment from The Associated Press. Franchises in Cincinnati, Oakland, and Chicago all could use a quarterback like Newton.

Kyle Allen has filled in for Newton this season at quarterback and is 5-5 as a starter. In the (almost) two seasons since Tepper purchased the team, the Panthers under Rivera had gone 12-16.

"We are going to take a comprehensive and thorough review of our football operation to make sure we are structured for long-term sustained success", Tepper said in the team's release Tuesday.

Twitter erupted with fans expressing both shock and support for the team's decision. We will consider a wide range of football executives to complement our current football staff.

Tepper said the team will hire an assistant general manager and vice president of football operations.
