Coach of the Year
Carolina Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera
Who else would be most fitting for this award than Carolina Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera? Rivera has led his team to a 7-0 start, which is the best in franchise history.
But the most impressive feat? He is coaching his team to victory despite losing his No. 1 wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin before the start of the regular season.
Would you believe that a team is 7-0 if you saw that Ted Ginn Jr. was their second leading receiver? It is hard to imagine. Just goes to show just how good of a job Coach Rivera is doing in Carolina.
