Rivera fires Sam Mills III


Recommended Posts

Although I'm pretty sure it's happened before, I can't actually remember the last time I heard of a position coach being fired during training camp.

That must have been one hell of a "difference of opinion" 😕

What's the problem? Rivera is the head football coach. He can't be held hostage due to who someone's father was.

It’s just odd to see that happen in TC no matter who the person is.

It is.

Throw in also that staff decisions were never exactly Rivera's strong suit (remember how long he held on to Eric Washington as his DC).

It's possible that Mills wasn't up to being a position coach. Don't know. Again, this is one of those things where I'd like to know more details.

And the fact that Rivera was notoriously loyal to his assistants.  Very surprising.

And worked with the elder Mills...

Throw in too that Mills III made the choice to follow Rivera to Washington.

I'll say it again. I really want to know the details of this story.

Speaking of Washington(not the team), the other Washington... Eric Washington. What ever happened to that guy? Iirc he was pretty bad at DC but pretty good at Dline coaching.

Especially considering Rivera has a long track record of keeping assistant coaches well past their expiration date. Firing him now means there's a decent chance he should've been fired a year ago... Feel bad for him but his name shouldn't make him different than any other assistant coach, and most of those guys bounce around too. He'll land on his feet somewhere.

His name shouldn't play any role.

With that said, it's not like Ron Rivera has exactly earned the benefit of a doubt when it comes to staffing decisions.
