Can you guys remember the reason the Panthers fired Ron Rivera? All he has done at Washington since he has been there is positive things, from instilling a better a culture to putting together a decent team. I think the Panthers made a mistake.

I think all parties needed a change. Carolina were stalling, Newton was playing poorly, and there needed to be a scapegoat. Rivera had been there for a while, and Carolina needed a fresh start.

I'll remember him most for coaching an ok Panthers team to a 15-1 regular season record, and a dominant playoff series. It was a shame that they had to choke against Denver and play by far their worst game of the season. Denver had a washed Peyton Manning, and only made the SB because New England missed a PAT and were forced to try (and miss) a game-tying 2XP.

Ron Rivera is a good coach but after enough years of limited success everyone kind of gets restless. The fans get annoyed at the players and coach, the coach is frustrated with the GM who makes his rosters, and the GM gets fed up with the coach for not getting players to play up to their potentially. There comes a point where something has to give and the head coach is usually just the easiest scapegoat.

Yeah, his record year after year with the Panthers was mediocre. Sure, he had the 15-1 Season that saw them make the Super Bowl, but basically everything fell into place for them that year. Otherwise, they never really went far. Not sure if that had to do with Rivera or their player personnel, but the results where underwhelming outside of that one season. And if you don't thrive every season, your days will be numbered as a head coach. The times of Marvin Lewis are over.

Gruden getting that 10 year contract is unheard of in this day and age. Coaches come and go so quickly now I can't remember their names. Gone are the days where you could identify a team by their coach.You just have to say their names and you automatically know their team. Shula, Walsh, Landry, Gibbs, Knoll, Parcells, and Ditka come to mind.

Yeah, most teams are super quick to move on nowadays - the Steelers being the notable exception. Correct me if I'm wrong but coaching contracts are fully guaranteed so even if the Raiders fire Gruden he's still getting his money.

I think coaches should get five years. If results aren't what you want after that, then can him. Any shorter and you're not giving them a true chance, and it gives your organization a bad stigma.

Now college coaching way different. One out of over 100 teams wins it all, and then you have to factor in recruiting. Consistency is all you need in college for most schools.
