    RT @desiree_astorga: @sdutChargers Does Rivera fit Rooney rule for being Mexican/Spanish?>Mexican/Puerto Rican. Yes. And he's getting job.

    Kevin als suggested via Twitter that he will take at least one coach from SD with him to be a coordinator.

    All Chargers assistants under contract. All but Crosby signed extensions last year. Chargers don't have to let them leave w/ Rivera.

    good luck to Rivera. He did a good enough job on the "D" side of the ball while he was here... maybe we should give Big Ted Cottrell a call???

    Rivera will be a good fit for the Panthers, I wish him all the luck in the world.

    Is there a confirmation or verification that Rivera is gone or that he took the job?

    Hope Rivera gets the job he's done a amazing job with the defense. Only wish Norv would go as well.

    Now there's an idea... Rivera gets the job and hires Norv as his OC... A real win-win.

    I just left Charlotte after living there for the past 2 years... it is a garbage football city. Fans are horrible. Stadium sucks. Everyone that lives there is originally from somewhere else (NY, PIT, FL, OH) and once their "beloved" Panthers lose a game or two they all say the same thing, "Well I'm really from so-and-so, so the Giant/Jets/Steelers/Dolphins are my real team". Bleeeech. Truly fair-weather fans.

    On top of that, the team is in shambles. They have 12 QB's on their roster and refuse to play their best one (Edwards from App State). While I do like Rivera and think he does deserve a shot at a HC job, I wouldn't wish the Panthers gig to my worst enemy.

    Oh, and I would take Singletary or Wannstedt as a DC...

    I wonder if Ron is thinking about this ice storm going through NC right now. Leave the beautiful city of San Diego and come to the frozen tundra of Charlotte NC, what a nightmare.

    Dude, What has Singletary done to show he is capable of being a DC? And Wannstedt hasn't coached in the NFL since 2004.

    I say No thank to both. Give me Keith Butler, LB Coach for Pitt

    What's this I'm reading about Ron taking Chudzinzki with him to be OC. I'd love to know what this guy has been doing the last 2 years. I've been screaming for he to take over clock management from Norv, instead we led the league in delay of games. Good riddance methinks, seems the guy did sweet F all. TEs coach my asz, how did Kris Wilson do then eh?, and our wasted draft pick Epps?.

    If Chargers HC Norv Turner can convince Dave Wannstedt to succeed Ron Rivera, the former Cowboys coordinators would be reunited in SD.
