Panthers sign Ron Rivera to three-year extension


The Carolina Panthers have signed head coach Ron Rivera to a three-year extension.

“Riverboat Ron” Rivera’s new deal runs though the 2017 season. The Panthers won the NFC South in 2013 finishing with a 12-4 record in the regular season before being ousted in the playoffs by San Francisco

The Panthers began 2013 going 0-2 but won 12 of their last 14. Rivera now holds a 25-24 record at Carolina including the playoff loss. An extension for Rivera now should ensure that the Panthers enter next season without questions about his future.
