Washington Commanders Fire Ron Rivera; Add Two Former GMs to Assist Ownership Group in Search For New Coach and Head of Football Operations


As expected, the Washington Commanders fired head coach Ron Rivera after a 4-13 finish to a season that began with much higher expectations. Rivera finished with a 26-49-1 record as Washington’s head coach.

Washington has added former Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers and former Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman to help the ownership group find its new head coach and head of football operations, per ESPN. They are both advisors to the ownership group and not officially part of the organization.

Myers, who is responsible for putting together the Golden State Warriors teams that won four NBA championships between 2015-2022, will be taking the lead in the search- organizing interviews with top candidates. He released the following statement through Ian Rappaport:

“I have been fortunate to know Josh Harris for many years, and his commitment to building championship-caliber teams is what drew me here. In my experience, championship infrastructure begins with a strong ownership group that prioritizes culture and invests in attracting the industry’s most talented and innovative leaders.

In speaking with Josh and his team, it’s clear they will do everything it takes to build out a world-class organization – one that can win on the field and make a positive mark in the DMV community. This is the type of opportunity that really inspires me, and I look forward to contributing to the next chapter of this storied franchise.”
