Ron Rivera now reportedly the leading candidate for the HC job

205 posts in this topic

You would really have to sell these coaches on the commitment to winning and their own job security along with adjusting some contracts as far as money concers due to many of these coaches capabilites to be very good coaches. Now I wouldn't call it a demotion I would call it more of an oppurtunity to be great. Now the only reason I don't call it a demotion is because those particular coaching positions aren't as important so to speak as the head coach, offensive coach defenisve coaching job is.

Now I know that our coaching staff will not 100% look like this but I can guarantee that at least 3-7 of those coaches will be on our coaching staff.

I should've just left it at "this is 100% unrealistic" and not really argued with you. I posted a realistic group of assistants in this thread and most all of them are both available and the type guys we'd hire.

If he stays in the 4-3 we're pretty much guaranteed a top 5 defense. Assuming we don't go try to see if we can field the worst DT unit in the league.

You don't just hire guys that the coach is unfamiliar with. Rivera will get to choose his staff and he will not choose guys he is unfamiliar with.

he doesn't just get to go outside and shout it to make it happen. Teams have to allow those coaches to leave. Hint: they won't.

If Rivera asks them they will...

It's not the same as just a regular coaching search. The Panthers have vacancies at EVERY position so you better believe that at least one of these guys will leave their former team and work for the Panthers because there is hardly enough unemployed coaches to even form a whole staff.

Unless a coach already under contract is being interviewed for a head coaching job, or a personnel exec is being interviewed for a promotion to general manager that would involve final say on personnel, their existing team can block any meeting. Many out there think that only a lateral move can be blocked. That is not true on the coaching or personnel side.

Oh I know but San Diego may not block the moves as they did not have the greatest season this year.

I was reading somewhere that the players he has coached have always spoken highly of him and viewed him as very well qualified to be a HC.

This is my favorite option so far.

He will probably keep the 4-3
