Redskins hired ex-Panthers coach Ron Rivera as head coach.
31 December 2019
Rapoport adds that it's a five-year deal that will be announced Wednesday. Washington wasted little time in securing Rivera, who has a career .546 winning percentage despite coming off two consecutive losing seasons. The hottest coaching candidate in the market, it's genuinely surprising Rivera chose Washington in short order. While it's unconfirmed, the soon-to-be 58-year-old is likely to retain OC Kevin O'Connell and lure one of Steve Wilks, John Pagano, or Al Holcomb as his defensive coordinator.
