    Wish him the best. He'll certainly have a good core group of talent to work with. I fully expect him to be a DC again by next year, although I think he'll have to wait a year or two to have a shot at HC opportunities again.

      He could also win himself a super bowl.

              I think that's a very underrated factor. It's much better for him to be on a Superbowl contender than to be on some bottom feeding team.

                While many of you are commenting on how this can improve his potential as a HC because he gets to learn under Norv Turner as well as learn the 3-4 scheme, one point you are skipping over, however, is the fact that he was not only passed over by the 6 teams that he interviewed with for HC jobs, but he was also NOT re-signed by his current employer and had to take a lesser role. Now I may not know everything there is to know about the man, but being passed on by 6 teams has to show that there were some serious deficiencies in his percieved ability to take on the full duties of a HC, much like Russ Grimm here in PIT. And not being re-signed by the Bears puts a dent in his DC resume and if Lovie is able to maintian the success that D has had without him, that will only discredit him more.

                  Wow. That got to hurt, but oh well. He gets some more experience and will stand stronger when HC onterviews comes around next offseason.

                    In the long run this may be a good move, but he has to prove he can coach the 3-4. IMO he'll have to be a 3-4 DC before he becomes a HC, so he'll probably be out of the running for 2007+2008. If he can take over as DC next year, and be successful, he'll get a HC gig for 2009. If not, he's a gonner. So altough this could be a good move, remember it can also be a horrible one.

                      With Norv as HC? I don't think so.

                        He didn't even get to interview for most of the jobs since the Bears were still playing up until the Superbowl. For all we know, one of those teams may have hired him.

                          Exaclty. I also think the 3-4 argument carries less weight than people think. For one thing the 3-4 was less en vogue than the Cover 2 anyways and for another both super bowl teams this year ran the Cover 2 in a copy cat league. This was a desperation move, most teams have filled their openings.

                            He'll end up being the most versatile Defensive Coach out there. He'll know the Cover 2 (Chicago), Blitz Heavy 4-3 (Philly), and the 3-4 (San Diego).

                              Good move by Rivera. He doesn't want to be tagged as a system DC. He's getting experience in the 3-4 to further increase his stock.

                              It won't matter though. He'll probably just run Cover 2 in whatever team he goes to.

                              I see him going to Tampa if Gruden doesn't produce this year.

                                It's clear in Chicago that he's no longer there because of a few different reasons: a bit of difference in philosophy, Lovie Smith already has his replacement on Staff, Bob Babich, they've been friends for over 20 years since they were at Tulsa, and since the Bears will likely give Smith a new contract where he is paid 4 or 5 million a year, the front office won't retain Rivera because he was due a huge increase in pay. That doesn't make sense for them since Lovie already has his ideal replacement for him and a guy he's been waiting to give the job to for a while now. They thought Rivera would get a Head Coaching job but didn't so now Smith and the organization are saying they want to go in a different direction and people have to realize it was more than that. They definitely won't pay Rivera a million if Smith is getting 5 mill. There was also the thought that if Lovie didn't do well in the playoffs during his tenure that Rivera would be the likely fit. Like when Lovie was rumored to be going to Dallas this year, Rivera was talked about by everybody who discussed it as the lead candidate for the Bears job right away.
