Panthers Begin Head Coach Search?

Oct 06 2013 09:20 AM Zod Carolina Panthers
NFL Network confirms candidates have been contacted and background checks are in process.
Ron Rivera's hot seat just went nuclear.

It is speculated that Rivera, at 1-2 this season, can keep his job with a playoff appearance. This still remains a possibility this season.

A win today in Arizona would help his case a great deal. A loss would make these coaching search articles multiply ten fold across the internet.

Let all hope for a Panthers win.

Stay Tuned!

Gettleman is just raking the coals of the fire under Rivera's ass.
1 candidate knows....they can't reach out to nfl coaches during the season right? Meaning someone outside the nfl has been notified. Any predictions?

i saw this too.i am really interested in who that 1 candidate that knows, is.

This is horrible to have leaked, seems like the FO has already given up on Rivera. Doesn't instill much hope in the fanbase either because it looks like they've given up this year

Yeah it's Miss Cleo, she hasn't been told about anything yet but she doesn't have to be told to already know. 

Wow.


Distraction or motivation?

No they haven't. Gettleman is a real GM. This is his way of sending a message to the coaches and players.

"Win. Now. Or I am gonna fug poo up."

As if he wasn't under enough pressure. My Lord.

A background check isn't technically "reaching out" since it doesn't require any contact with the candidate.

Still, it's a pretty big 'ouch' to have this come out now. Only real defense is "due diligence".

Wow.

Yooo this is perfect MOTIVATION for Chicos laid back azz. Seriously thou I think Getts saw something in the way he coached the end of last year when it was desperation time. He again put on his attack game plan when staring a must win in the face. Now he leaks a little info he coaches us to a playoff appearance saves his job and our seasson win win. ( i hope)

it's actually smart the more i think about it. this is what i was talking about when we hired DG. it starts from the top with him.

 

rivera is a players coach. if the players wanna see Rivera stay they have to perform. If Rivera wants to stay he better put the peddle to the metal.

 

It can be viewed as a distraction or motivation. It will show what kind of coach RR is. And lets be honest we've played our best ball when Rivera has been on the hot seat.

Between Chip Kelly struggling and the Schiano fiasco, im scared of college coaches. I still say Lovie Smith, closest thing to a sure bet you will get in awhile. He can be our Andy Reid.

Hope this is true.

 

I'm not sold after 1 solid win against the Giants (zero wins) & where our DL was insanely in BEASTMODE.  We will see in November against the Flacons where we really are.  The cards, vikes, rams & bucs would all be beat by the talent on this team with a top notch coaching staff.  Time for Rivera to put up or shut up.  Come to think of it, Rivera actually doesn't say much 1 way of the other.

let's see how the players respond.  They apparently call him a players coach, maybe

they'll step up to support him.

I'm not necessarily going to read "smartness" into the move on DG's part. But RR has to use this as motivation. Coach like against the Giants or at the end of last season and I think he can get the team to win. He should coach every game like it's a playoff game.

Man, some of us was just fooling around when we said Rivera should be on a one game notice the rest of the season, but the Big Cat isn't messing around is he.  I expect to win by 100 today!

Oh, it's definitely a smart move to be doing it.

Probably would have been better to not have the media find out about it though :(
