    Default Ron Rivera - Experienced Defensive Co-ordinator

    He played with greats like Mike Singletary, Richard Dent and Otis Wilson winning a championship.

    He coached Jeremiah Trotter to two Pro-Bowls, All Pro and playoffs (5-4 3 division titles). This was in the 4-3.

    He coached Briggs and Urlacher to Pro Bowls, All Pros and the playoffs (2-2 with 2 division titles). This was in the 4-3.

    He coached Jamal Williams, Merriman, and Phillips to the playoffs (3-3 3 division titles). This was in the 3-4.

    We have a coach and players on our team who has worked with him. We can ask them about him.

    2010 Chargers Defense = scoring 10th, passing 1st, rushing 1st = no playoffs
    2009 Chargers Defense = scoring 16th, passing 11th, rushing 20th = playoffs
    2008 Chargers Defense = scoring 15th, passing 31st, rushing 11th = playoffs
    2007 Chargers (LB coach) = scoring 5th, passing 14th, rushing 16th = playoffs
    2006 Bears Defense = scoring 3rd, passing 11th, rushing 6th = playoffs
    2005 Bears Defense = scoring 1st, passing 5th, rushing 11th = playoffs
    2004 Bears Defense = scoring 13th, passing 15th, rushing 25th = no playoffs
    LB coach with Eagles 1999-2003 = 4 playoffs, 3 NFC Championship Games

    Ron Rivera has coached in the 2nd round of the playoffs 7 times, the conference championship 5 times and the Super Bowl once.

    This is not counting his "assistant" coaching times but only his position coach duties and cordinator duties.

    I would be pleased if he got the nod. Disappointed to have not heard his name mentioned by the team so far.

    This morning on 87.7, Elway said that Rivera was down the long list, but i agree he should have an interview already scheduled!!

    I'm not giving up on Elway too quickly, but I do hope to see some better names on his list ASAP.

    Either that, or hear that he's trying to bring in a BIG NAME D coordinator.

    3 yards and a cloud of dust doesn't sell tickets. Almost every defensive coach turns his offense into that. I think Dungy might be the only one who didn't and thats only because he had Manning.

    Yeah, we would be stupid not to call him ASAP. I'm quickly losing faith in Elway on this one. It's embarrassingly inept not to even land an interview with your primary candidate (Harbaugh).

    I never saw that Harbaugh was a primary candidate... Elway said his name "had been thrown around" and thats it. If they really wanted him, they didnt pursue him very hard IMO.

    Watch Elway's presser, he's gushing over Harbaugh and mentions him like 3-4 times...

    I think Elway knew he couldn't land Harbaugh, I think he knew that well before yesterday. Harbaugh never made the effort to contact us, we let him know we were interested, every major sport network put it out into the airwaves. Harbaugh never had an interest and was set on a bay area team long before he made it official. He did what Gruden did with the U, he visited and got his stock up, got a little popular, the difference is Harbaugh did it within a 24 hour period. In the end Elway probably didn't know what to think and guessed he wanted to return to the collegiate level.

    With the mention of Dennison and Koetter possibly getting interviews I think we might be looking at better and better candidates. I'm still surprised we haven't scheduled an interview with Rivera and I hope we do. But there are some more positive names starting to get mentioned. I would like to see us interview McDermott, Carmichael and maybe Morninwheg before it's all said and done, hopefully we can get an interview with Williams as well.

    He's Puerto Rican and Mexican mixed I believe.
