I have been campaigning for him to be fired for a wile know. (exact date and time Giants game) The Defense at the beginning of the season was horrendous. Allowing 100 yard rushing games seemed to be the norm and or pass perfection was nonexistent. Now I look at the Defense and see hope ( note: I do not believe the stats reflect the true performance, overrated) but, they are playing better and seem to be moving in the right direction. We know Rivera was brought here for his defensive background.

So the question comes to mind! Is Rivera worth keeping as a Defensive Coordinator?

I don't think you can clearly justify keeping him as a HC, but the argument keeping him as DC is worth discussing and something I'm open to looking at

It is not an option at all. 0% chance.

I say we keep him on a weekly basis. As long as he keeps winning into next season, it would be dumb to fire him. We know he will not get fired after this season. However, that should not warrant an entire season for him. If the team comes out and loses 4 out of 5, he should be gone at that point. Right now we are looking good and you cant fire your coach.

This idiotic theory has been discussed at length here on the huddle. I'm going to assume you are just trolling, but if you aren't, name a time when an NFL coach got demoted to coordinator on the same team in consecutive years.

Has that ever happened? It doesn't seem realistic at all.

no.

new HC needs a clean slate and it would cause unnecessary drama and awkwardness in the lockerroom.

It's happened in the case of Meeks going from D-coordinator to D-backs assistant coach, but I've never heard of a situation where the head coach would be demoted to a coordinator. Too much pride involved...would never happen.

Note: Some of the best coaching staffs have ex HC as coordinators

Texans- Broncos- Packers- Saints ( back when they had Gregg Williams)

It's a trend worth looking at

meeks wasn't demoted. his contract as defensive coordinator under fox had expired.

he was then hired as secondary coach under rivera.

Of course, but has a head coach ever been the coordinator for the team he was coaching the year before? Doubtful.
