Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera named to coaches subcommittee of NFL Competition Committee

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

Panthers head coach Ron Rivera is one of four coaches to be named to the Coaches Subcommittee of the NFL's Competition Committee.

It's a slow news day, so while it might not be as interesting as mock drafts or the team starting offseason workouts it's still worth mentioning that Panthers head coach Ron Rivera was one of four coaches selected to the Coaches Subcommittee of the NFL Competition Committee.

Here's the official Panthers Twitter account with the confirmation:

In case you're not familiar with the competition committee, their basic purpose is as follows:

The subcommittee, chaired by Pro Football Hall of Fame coach John Madden, reports to the full Competition Committee prior to the annual NFL meeting every March and meets on a regular basis via conference call to discuss player safety, competitive issues, coaching and personnel development and technological innovations.

Rivera - along with Joe Philbin (Dolphins), Leslie Frazier (Vikings), and Mike Smith (Falcons) - was chosen by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to join the subcommittee this year. These four men join John Madden, Andy Reid (Chiefs), John Harbaugh (Ravens), and Tom Coughlin (Giants) to form the eight man committee.
