Ron Rivera is the coach of the Carolina Panthers. Even though they were favored this year, they lost to the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. If history is anything, look for Ron Rivera to bounce back and win a Super Bowl in the very near future. After all, he had 3 losing seasons in his 5-year career with the Panthers. Each of those years it was widely rumored that he would either be fired before the season ended or surely after. He always survived.His record includes 6-10, 7-9, 12-4, 7-8-1, and this year his record was 15-1 and a Super Bowl Runner-up. He has been quite lucky because in most pro sports you seldom get 3 years to prove your worth. Evidently, his boss saw something special in him and was rewarded quite handsomely this past year.
