Mid-season head coach firings generally only serve to turn already bad seasons into even worse ones.

Not a huge stretch to think Rivera gets fired at the end of the year (though I still dont know if it's settled yet) but mid-season would be a mess.

I don't really think this season could get any worse so, why not fire him?

JR also have to be careful about how he handles this situation. I mean, I want Rivera out today, but I wonder what kind of backlash that would bring when good coaches look at Carolina. Would they want to coach a team in such disarray?

We were competitive yesterday against a team that was expected to blow us out, and in the game till the end.

It can get a lot worse than that.

That would be an idiotic decision.

Personally, there wouldn't be a point to let go Rivera as there isn't anybody on the coaching staff that could take over with the exception of maybe Shula who has some head coaching experience

I was talking to a friend of mine about the number of coaches / managers who might lose their jobs this year.

The only reason I could see us getting rid of Rivera in the middle of the season, which would effectively tank the rest of the season, is to get a jump on the replacement coach search and be out there before the rest of the league.

I don't think it would be the right decision but it'll depend on what actual sense of desperation Jerry Richardson feels.

Hiring a new head coach when you haven't hired a new GM wouldnt make sense.

And before anyone suggests it, no, he's not hiring Cowher to do both.
