Would love him as DC for the Titans, but with a lame duck Munchak at the helm we'll likely just get somebody terrible.

I thought he had a chance of being retained. IMO a quality DC that might have been in over his head as a HC.

So with the win streak he didn't save his job. He's the only Reid coach I would take back as a DC.

Only two teams have a chance at him, Philadelphia and Carolina, and its justified wanting.

Think about the possibility of kelly coaching up cam. That could potentially be scary.

If you want to stop the run, you don't want Ron Rivera anywhere near your team.

I was really shocked to see he was fired. They were playing outstanding football lately and thought he at least would get another season, at the same time can't blame them seems like those late season surges from non playoff teams usually don't translate to the next season.

Oh I agree. I just think it'll be interesting to see where he lands.

It saved Andy's job last season. And it really depends on the coach and the situation for the surges.

I always liked Rivera to be a Head Coach. Hopefully he gets another chance down the line.

The most likely landing place for Kelly imo.

I'm seeing conflicting reports about this.

Rivera is still scheduled to speak to the media (11 AM EST; going on now, I suppose) like he does every Monday. So he probably isn't being fired today at least. Maybe Jerry Richardson fires him soon, but not today.
