Panthers extend coach Ron Rivera's contract through 2020 season

Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera signs 2-year contract extension Panthers extend Rivera's contract

During a period of uncertainty in Carolina, the Panthers have made things a little more certain. We've had consistency of winning and we've gone to the playoffs four out of five years.

The Carolina Panthers are happy with the job Ron Rivera has done coaching the team and rewarded him with a two-year extension, NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon reported Saturday morning.

Rivera was brought to Carolina for his defensive expertise, and the Panthers put together four consecutive top-10 finishes in yards allowed from 2012-15, joining Seattle as the only teams to do so. Rivera was under contract through 2018, but will be extended to 2020 now.

On the field, the Panthers have been fairly consistent outside of a disappointing 6-10 season a year ago. His.576 winning percentage is a franchise best and the seventh best record in the National Football League since Rivera started in Charlotte, according to the team.

Mega Millions jackpot victor in Florida, but Powerball at $570M

Becker was promoted to COO after owner Jerry Richardson said he would sell the team in the wake of allegations of workplace misconduct. Rivera already has 67 wins and with a road game in New Orleans will pass Fox with his fourth playoff appearance.

The Panthers hold a regular-season record of 64-47-1 under Rivera. Carolina is ranked seventh in defense this season.

Carolina finished the 2017 season with a 11-5 record, good for a wild-card berth. And I really appreciate the support we've gotten from our fans in the Carolinas. In seven seasons with the Panthers, Rivera has shown a distinct capability to ensure his teams are prepared and ready for play, especially when considered the underdog.
