Rivera went 76-63-1 with the Panthers, winning a pair of coach of the year awards and taking them to a Super Bowl with a 15-1 record in 2015.

"I believe this is the best decision for the long-term success of our team", Panthers' owner David Tepper said. "I think as much respect as I have for Ron, I think a change was appropriate to build things the way I want things to be built". Gettleman and Rivera worked closely together during their time in Carolina to turn the Panthers into a legitimate National Football League contender - even making the 2015 Super Bowl - but it would be foolish to attempt to recreate that.

Newton reaggravated the Lisfranc injury in a Week 2 loss and hasn't played since. If he has old-school discipline and modern and innovative processes.

Quarterback Cam Newton will be having surgery on his left foot, per a source.

With Cam Newton's status with the Carolina Panthers in doubt, the New Orleans Saints are just the latest team to be linked to the quarterback.

Rivera said his best coaching job came during the 2014 season, when Carolina won its final four games to win the division with a 7-8-1 record. I love coaching. Not just coaching because it's about winning football games, but coaching because you have an opportunity to impact young men and people.

Before suffering the foot injury, Newton missed only three starts in seven seasons. He was also asked about favoring a coach with an offensive background to one from the defensive side of the ball.

He is a two-time NFL Coach of the Year and likely won't have a problem landing a job next season.

The Panthers seem interest in offensive minds and coaches who are willing to embrace analytics.

The legacies of Rivera and Newton have always been intertwined as both came to the Panthers in 2011.

If the Panthers were to release Newton before next season, they could save $19 million and would only incur $2 million in dead money. "So at the end of the day, like I said, hopefully (Newton) is going to be healthy".

Newton, 30, has one year remaining on his current contract with the Panthers.

Fewell also said Kyle Allen will continue to start Sunday when the Panthers visit the Falcons. "I can go on and on but most importantly; thank you for allowing me to be me", he wrote on his Instagram Stories.

"I'm going to be honest with you", Rivera said, "I'm kind of excited".
