During Rivera's tenure, Carolina has produced 28 Pro Bowl and 18 All-Pro picks, including three in 2017: linebacker Luke Kuechly (Pro Bowl and first team All-Pro), guard Andrew Norwell (first team All-Pro) and tackle Daryl Williams (second team All-Pro).
During a period of uncertainty in Carolina, the Panthers have made things a little more certain. Both lost a Super Bowl but Rivera is in a rare position, getting the Panthers to the playoffs four times in five years. They reached the Super Bowl in the 2015 season.
The deal is expected to be finalized before the Panthers' game at New Orleans on Sunday and could be announced Saturday.
On the field, the Panthers have been fairly consistent outside of a disappointing 6-10 season a year ago.
And Rivera has earned more time at the helm. Carolina is ranked seventh in defense this season.
Carolina's offense has finished in the top 10 in the National Football League in yards rushing per game in six of the past seven seasons, including a fourth-place mark this season at 131.4 yards per game. And I really appreciate the support we've gotten from our fans in the Carolinas. It doesn't mean Rivera knows he'll be the Panthers' coach through 2020. The Chicago Bears, for whom Rivera both played and coached, are among the teams searching.
