Report: Ron Rivera interviews with Rams for DC opening

The Los Angeles Rams interviewed former Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera for their recently vacated defensive coordinator position over the weekend, CBS Sports reported Monday.

The Rams are interviewing to replace Raheem Morris, who was named head coach of the Atlanta Falcons last week. The Rams have also interviewed or have interviews set up with Brandon Staley, Aden Durde and Dennard Wilson. Staley served as the Rams’ defensive coordinator in 2020.

Rivera also reportedly interviewed with the Philadelphia Eagles last week before they landed on Vic Fangio.

Rivera, 62, last served as a DC on Norv Turner’s staff with the then-San Diego Chargers from 2008-10. The 2010 squad finished first in the NFL in total defense and second in scoring defense.

Rivera is 102-103-2 as a head coach with the Commanders (2020-23) and Carolina Panthers (2011-19). He also has been a defensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears (2004-06) and has experience in Philadelphia as Andy Reid’s linebackers coach for five seasons from 1999-2003.
