If teams start courting Chud for HC....

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.
