WR coach Fred Graves and LB coach Warren Belin are fired

Recommended Posts

WR coach I can see, but LB coach? I would have to assume that Rivera already has other specific people in mind.

Yeeeeeaah I'm gonna go ahead and declare myself aboard the "scapegoat" bandwagon.

Belin was kind of socially awkward the time I met him though

Same here. I don't get why Belin got fired unless some bigger name with more experience would take over at that position

So in addition to questioning Rivera's coaching acumen, I suppose we might want to question how good a job he did selecting staff members.

What do we have so far? Let's see...special teams coordinator, original DB's coach, RB's coach, LB's coach, and WR's coach. That's a bunch of misses.

I bet you anything that Rivera's talk with Richardson went as follows:

JR: "So....I like you, Ron. The players love you and you have given us improvement since we brought you in, despite a terrible start this season."

RR: "Thank you, sir. I apologize for the slow start, but as I have said....it's a process."

JR: "So it is...." *grabs golf club and walks into open spot in office* "you know...I used to be able to drive a golf ball 280 yards with a 3 wood..."

RR: "That's impressive, sir..."

JR: "I haven't had a swing that good in a while. Always was more of a baseball man myself...now that...that is something I can do. The bigger the ball, the easier it is to hit.....so, this is what is going to happen, Ron."

RR: "Sir, with all du--"

JR: "You are going to go back to your office. You are going to sit down with your coordinators, who are not going to be fired, and you are going to fire at least 3 assistant coaches. I want some turn around around here and I want you to deliver the news, because I want you to look at your future. We will bring in new guys at those spots....and if next season you decide your...what did you say..."process"?

RR: "Yes, sir.."

JR: "If your process doesn't pan out...you'll be out the door as well. But not before I work on my swing....are we clear on that?"

RR: "...yes, sir. I will not fail you again."

JR: "I know you won't, Ron. I know you won't."
