CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Ron Rivera says based on recent conversations with team owner Jerry Richardson he doesn't know if he'll remain the Carolina Panthers head coach beyond this season.
Rivera says ``I know that nothing is going to happen until after the season.''
Rivera's coaching seat got a little hotter after the Panthers (2-8) surrendered yet another fourth quarter lead Sunday and lost 27-21 to Tampa Bay in overtime. The loss dropped Rivera's record to 8-18 in his two seasons as Carolina's coach.
Richardson fired general manager Marty Hurney four weeks ago and Rivera indicated at the time his future was tied to Carolina's ability to start ``trending up.''
But the Panthers are 1-3 since Hurney was ousted.
They've lost four games in which they led in the fourth quarter.
