Nine years as the top man in Carolina cemented Rivera as one of the most well-respected leaders in the sport. Primarily alongside former MVP Cam Newton, Rivera departed Carolina with a record of 79-67-1 amidst his ninth season, with his 2015 season being the high point where his team took home the NFC Championship trophy before falling to Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

The 2019 Panthers were doomed from the start, with Newton suffering a season-ending injury early in the season with new ownership yearning for a leadership change at the same time. Everyone knew his midseason departure would be short-lived, as Rivera quickly became the most sought-after coach on the market.

Rivera came to Washington with hopes of his presence sparking organizational culture change.
