“You know, it’s interesting, and I don’t know if people will agree with me or believe in what I’m saying, but to hell with that,” Rivera said. “I managed for about three and a half years while I was here. Probably the last five weeks I’ve coached; getting back and doing the defensive coordinator stuff was a thrill.”

Rivera was further asked if he would have preferred it if there had been more separation between the management and coaching sides.

“Well, if I knew all that, [laughs] in hindsight, yeah, absolutely,” he said. “I didn’t want that pressure. I mean, it’s one thing to think, okay, yeah, great, but then once you actually go through it, it was a lot.”

On Monday, for the first time in over two decades, the Washington Commanders will see drastic and much-needed changes after which they can hope for better times to arrive.
