10:53 AM ET 01.05 | Ron Rivera's week of waiting will end Saturday when the Carolina Panthers' second-year head coach is scheduled to meet with owner Jerry Richardson. Rivera has been in limbo since the Panthers ended their season with a 44-38 win at New Orleans on Sunday. While seven teams fired their coaches Monday, Rivera spent the week in Charlotte meeting with his team, conducting exit interviews with players and preparing for his sit-down with Richardson. Richardson has made no public comments since firing general manager Marty Hurney in October, the move that put Rivera's future in jeopardy. According to Rivera, Richardson told him he wanted to see the team trend upward over the final 10 weeks of the season.

With as bad as Charlotte was when he got there, I don't think two years is a fair shake. He should get at least one more year.

A new Coach does not always equate to success... Especially for teams like the Panthers.

Keep Rivera.

I agree. That situation leaves a lot to be desired right at the moment. They're still looking for a new GM... there's no way of telling how that could work out for Rivera.

Another team who should fold. But since they won't, just hire cheap coaches and gm's, just enough to keep the league off you're back.

Do you mean the Jets?
