Lombardi just reported on NFL network that Ron Rivera fate will be left up to the GM. Also the search is on the way.

Things will get interesting in the next couple of days. I think the Panthers will move fast and Ross or Gettleman will probably be the most likely candidates to end up with the job.

Rivera just said the opposite. He said he and JR will meet to discuss their future. The way he said it sounded like it would be without a GM.

Richardson could easily tell him, "it's up to the guy we hire as GM".

I don't want him back but this is the way it should work. Let the new GM be an actual GM. If he thinks Rivera should be interviewed or be the guy moving forward then ok.

Joe Person@josephperson
Told Jerry Richardson didn't want to do anything rash. Wants to think it through. With New Year's, could be Wed till he sits down w/ Rivera.

Does not bother me too much, however if we wait around for a while to hire a GM, and wait around for a while for him to evaluate....we may miss out on the coach that he wants.

When the fug did Lambardi become a insider?

I know he was once a gm but that doesn't make him a insider,he doesn't know duck squat about what other teams are doing around the NFL.

Lombardi has legitimate contacts around the league.

Couldn't tell ya where he's getting his Panther info though.

Richardson will decide his fate.

If he wants Rivera gone....he will hire a GM that wants to bring in a new coach. If he wants Rivera to stay for another year, he will hire a GM that thinks Rivera deserves one more year. Richardson won't hire a GM whose plan for the next year isn't already laid out to a degree.
