Ron Rivera has ‘no regrets’ about committing to join Washington NFL team

Ron Rivera has had success as both a coach and coordinator, but he’s now joined a dumpster fire of an organization, currently known as Washington’s NFL team.

The club has had so much internal disarray that it doesn’t even have a name at present, with news on that front reportedly coming at some point in the next month or so.

It’s coming off one of, if not the most, disappointing season in franchise history, compiling a 3-13 record, and boasting very little young star power on the roster. And now it will be up to Rivera and the new regime to rebuild the mess that Bruce Allen left for him to clean up.

But that’s just the roster side of it. The off-field distractions are at an all-time high, and that’s why Rivera was asked if he has any regrets about taking the job. Apparently, he does not.

“No regrets,” Rivera told The Charlotte Observer. “I look forward to the challenge of improving a 3-13 team. I want to build a sustainable winning culture, in every facet.”

It’s a big challenge, indeed, but Rivera appears ready to take it on. Good luck to him.
