River agreed to the three year extension, a contract that was well deserved after the season his Panthers produced. After a very slow start, the Panthers rallied, winning the NFC South and earning a first-round bye and home playoff game.
Ron Rivera started 1-5 in 2011, 1-6 in 2012 and 1-3 in 2013. But #Panthers turned into a force this year by sticking with him. Well-earned

The Panthers lost in their divisional playoff home game to the San Francisco 49ers. There are many off-season questions to be answered, but the Panthers have no question at the head coach spot.
