Ron Rivera was shown the door by the Carolina Panthers midway through the 2019 season. To the surprise of no one, Rivera wasn't on the unemployment line for long, as he was hired by the Washington Redskins to be their new head coach.
Now, with a plethora of Panthers gear in his home, he's found a great way to dispose of them.
Rivera will be holding a yard sale this Saturday to sell all of his nine years worth of Panthers gear. The event will be hosted by the Humane Society of Charlotte, where all proceeds of the sale will go.
“The Rivera family has been an invaluable partner to HSC over the last 9 years,” Humane Society vice president of philanthropy Donna Stucker said in a statement, via NBC Sports. “We’re sad to see them go, but are excited for their family’s new adventure and thankful for their help raising donations for HSC and serving as honorary chairpersons for the We Are Family Capital Campaign.”
Rivera has an outstanding reputation around the NFL and for good reason.
The sale will feature team-issued apparel and memorabilia for fans to purchase. Additionally, Rivera and his wife will appear at the event to sign autographs and take photos.
Rivera found a way to turn a farewell into a positive situation, with all benefits going to a cause that means so much to the new Redskins head coach.
