Pretty bad for him considering he was a potential HC this offseason. He'll be gone in a year.

So he gets fired and then ends up with an even lower and more meaningless job as LB's coach, that sucks for him. But, I bet by this time next year he'll be a HC.

not a bad move on his part though, he gets the 3 - 4 experience, and he gets to live in sunny cali as oppose to windy /cold chitown

It's a step down, but make sure to read this part.

Quote:
For Rivera, the idea of joining the Chargers was another way to improve his stock for a future head coaching job. Rivera was defensive coordinator of a Super Bowl team, but he was pigeonholed in some ways. He was considered a 4-3 defensive specialist and so many of the opening this year wanted coaches with 3-4 experience.
Not a bad spot to get experience in. He should pretty much have his pick for a HC next year.

He'll also learn under Norv Turner, continue to work with one of the best LB's playing in Shawne Merriman, receives experience in the 3-4. All of those things help pad his resume. Shrewd move on his part.

Is a decent move. He can learn the 3-4 and bolt next year to be a HC. He won't be considered a cover-2 only guy which really hurt his chances to be a HC this year because a lot of the teams that needed a HC ran the 3-4 and had too much invested in the D to change schemes.

That really sucks for him, from the DC of the Bears to a LB coach.

If he gets the assistant head coach job as well, this is an excellent move, IMO. He will now know both the 3-4 and Cover 2, the two most popular D's, he will get a little HC experience as their assistant HC, and he will learn about offensive strategy as well, as he is going to a high powered offensive team.

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.

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.

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.
