Would you fire Rivera and promote him to keep him?

No... I just wouldn't allow Chud to be courted by other teams.

On January 1 at 5pm, JR's private jet is scheduled to take Chud and family around the world on a 2-month vacation...lots of tropical islands with no phone or internet.

If another team offers Chud a HC position, there's nothing the Panthers could do to stop him other than try to persuade him. If Chud wanted to leave to be a HC somewhere else, he could.

And to answer the OP question, no.

I would give him a raise, assistant head coach title and have a handshake agreement that he would be promoted to head coach i Rivera does not meet expectations for next season.

Similar to the Jason Garrett-Wade Phillips thing.

I hope Chud is under the impression he has unfinished business here.

Nope, I'm not sure Chud is HC material... a lot more goes into being a good HC beyond X's and O's.

I'd bet Chud wants to stick around and watch this offense realize it's full potential.

No, I would not fire Rivera; but, I would be grooming/mentoring the QB under him, or someone, into the same philosophy.

Not too worried about someone coming after him this year.

Most teams go after coordinators from a sustained winning program.

While he has certainly done much to bring life to a team with no pulse offensively, his offense is yet to beat a true champion and it's yet to win a championship, or even a division title.

I'd be a lot more worried once the Panthers win the division then I am now.

Too, some Coordinators are happy being Coordinators and either don't fit, or don't want that HC title...Labeau in Pittsburg as example.

Wasn't this the same cpach people were bitching about when our offense couldn't score in the fourth quarter?

Chud will leave when he does and we will replace him. At this point Rivera is the head coach and should be for the future. Chud is a coordinator with no head coach experience at any level. Even his offensive coordinator experience is not that extensive. Lets be real would this offense be any good at all with Clausen at the helm?? He has done a great job with Newton for sure but it is unclear what would happen if he went elsewhere at this point. And would he be able to run the team and the offense at the same time?

I am fine for him to be here for as long as it lasts, but no I wouldn't replace Rivera with him. I could see giving him a title like Assistant head coach or something if that keeps him but he is not the only reason our offense is doing well at this point.

Being honest, I think Chud gets his rocks off figuring out creative ways to score and as long as Rivera gives him 100% control in the play calling area, then Chud will be a happy man for a good while! As a head coach then he would almost have to give up some offensive power to others, and he seems like he just wants to be that lil kid playing madden trying to score 100 points! Bad analogy...........yes! But y'all get my point
