Just read that Coach Rivera and the team just agreed to a 3 year extension making him our coach through the 2017 season. I am ecstatic about this move and it tells me more than just who our coach will be for the next few years.
This news tells me that Mr. Richardson is learning from the past and allowing Dave Gettleman to have input on our future. We know from the past experience with John Fox that Mr. Richardson wanted back to back winning seasons in exchange for an extension, but with the fluidity of teams in this league that's not a reasonable request. It is the expectation, but you can't look at that expectation in a vacuum.
This is just the first of many exciting moments that are ahead for this team in the 2014 offseason, and I am pumped. Go Panthers! Congratulations, Ron.
