Redskins head coach Ron Rivera has yard sale for old Panthers gear
Ron Rivera is now the head coach of the Washington Redskins, but he remains heavily involved in the Carolina Panthers community. Despite heading to the nation’s capital, Rivera is holding a yard sale that will include some of his old Panthers gear.
The yard sale is being held on Saturday at the Humane Society of Charlotte. In addition to the yard sale, Rivera and his wife Stephanie will be signing autographs for people who show up.
The yard sale will include Rivera’s personal collection of Panthers apparel. Along with his own personal items, there will be limited-edition memorabilia sold to help the cause.
The former head coach of the Panthers will be signing items in exchange for a five-dollar donation. All of the proceeds from the yard sale and the autograph signing will be given to the Humane Society of Charlotte.
Prior to accepting the head coaching job for the Redskins, Rivera spent nine years with the Panthers. Over that span, he led Carolina to a 76-63-1 record and made a Super Bowl appearance in 2015-16.
Then, in 2019, the Panthers struggled to win games down the stretch. As a result, Carolina fired Rivera following an embarrassing loss to the Redskins in Week 13. The new ownership under David Tepper believed it was time to make a change at head coach.
Regardless of how the team was performing, Rivera has always been a prominent member of the community in Charlotte. As Rivera makes his way to Washington, he is making a lasting impression on the fans in Carolina.
