Word on Ron Rivera not likely Monday

If the Carolina Panthers are going to fire coach Ron Rivera, it’s not expected to happen Monday.

Rivera is scheduled to hold his usual day-after-the-game meeting with the media at 11 a.m. ET. Team officials said no one else is expected to take part in the news conference.

We’ll see if Rivera reveals anything about what he’s been told about his status by owner Jerry Richardson. But I don’t think this means that Rivera is totally safe.

Richardson could be taking a few days to think this one through. He also could be waiting until he hires a new general manager to determine Rivera’s future.
