Panthers fire Head Coach Ron Rivera after loss to the Redskins

The Redskins got their 2nd straight win, and their 3rd of the year, when they ran all over the Panthers in Carolina. Two days later the Panthers have fired 9th-year Head Coach Ron Rivera. Washington handed Carolina their 7th loss of the year, and they have lost 5 of their last 6 games.

Ron Rivera is the 2nd NFL head coach to be fired this season. We're very familiar with the first, former Redskins HC Jay Gruden who was fired after the team went 0-5 to start the year. Rivera had a 76-63-1 regular season record, was 3-4 in the playoffs, and had a Super Bowl loss during his 9 seasons in Carolina.
