Panthers owner Jerry Richardson is "clearly agonizing" over the decision of whether to retain head coach Ron Rivera.
Richardson and Rivera are meeting on Saturday face-to-face, and Rivera's fate will be determined once Richardson hires a general manager. In 2012, Carolina won its final four games and finished 7-9. If Rivera were kept, he would also figure to retain offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, giving face-of-the-franchise Cam Newton continuity. It's going to be a very tough call for Richardson.

He's not agonizing. It just takes him that long to get out a sentence.

Guessing Yasinskas was the source on that one.

Probably just speculation. No one's had any contact with Richardson. Unknown whether he's "agonizing" or just waiting to tell Rivera his fate in person.

Every single thing about that quote screams "this is not only speculation but bad speculation" to me.

Not one person at ESPN has any idea what media-phobe Jerry Richardson is thinking or if he's agonizing over anything. We also have just as much reason to believe that Rivera will be given a decision Saturday and not when a GM is hired as we do that they will wait even longer.

Not much to see there.

Here's the source: http://espn.go.com/b...ing-very-slowly

"Agonize" is Yas' word:

Richardson is moving very slowly, but that might not be a bad thing. He clearly is agonizing over the Rivera decision. That’s understandable because Richardson likes Rivera and there have been some signs he can be a successful head coach, but the results so far haven’t been spectacular.


An interesting tidbit from that link tho:

The Panthers also interviewed at least one candidate, who is not presently employed by another team, before the regular season ended.

Brandon Beane wouldn't technically be employed by "another team".
