WASHINGTON, D.C. (WRIC) — Sources told NFL insider Ian Rapoport that the Washington Redskins are giving Ron Rivera 5-year-deal.
An official announcement is expected to be made on New Year’s Day, according to Rapoport.
Ron Rivera met with the Redskins yesterday to discuss their head coaching vacancy. Rivera was fired as head coach of the Carolina Panthers earlier this month.
On Monday, Redskins owner Dan Snyder also announced Bruce Allen had been fired. A move that came after the Redskins lost 47-16 to the Dallas Cowboys.
The Redskins only won three games this NFL season.
