Washington Commanders Fire Head Coach

After having a 4-13 season the Washington Commanders decided to part ways with head coach, Ron Rivera.

Ron Rivera started coaching the commanders in 2020. This was the seventh NFL team that he has coached in his career. He was the head coach for The Carolina Panthers and Washington Commanders. Rivera started coaching in 1997 after he played nine seasons in the NFL for the Chicago Bears.

When Rivera took over his first season, he lead the commanders to a 7-9 season, and ended up being the number one seed in the NFC East. Although this success was starting to carry in to the next two seasons, the 2023-2024 season was not the case. The Commanders ended up being last in the NFC East this season. Their early season wins against notable teams such as, The Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns did not get carried into the later season games. Those end of season games meant the most.

On the bright side, Washington has the number 2 draft pick for 2024. The team is looking for a good pick to hopefully bring up their off season blues. The team is already in the hunt for another head coach to lead the team to wins next season.
