The Carolina Panthers have a new owner in David Tepper. Yet, the team will not be making a coaching change, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The Panthers are 6-8 this season with two games remaining. Carolina is the second-best team in the NFC South, trailing only the 12-2 New Orleans Saints.

This season, the Panthers hired veteran play caller Norv Turner as their Offensive Coordinator. Things were going good, as the team went 2-1 through the first three weeks.

Following the team’s Week 4 bye, the Panthers won four of their next five games. Things have since gone bad, as the team has lost six straight games.

The Panthers will attempt to end the skid on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. Or on December 30th at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana against the Saints.

The 56-year-old Fort Ord, California has been the Panthers head coach since the 2011 season. He has gone 70-55-1 as their head coach in eight seasons.

He is also 3-4 in the playoffs. Rivera guided the team to Super Bowl 50 before losing to the Denver Broncos at the end of the 2015 season.

Two years ago, the team had a 6-10 record. Then, they rebounded with an 11-5 record in 2017, before losing to the Saints in the NFC Wild Card game.
