Ron Rivera - Staying for 2013

Jerry Richardson and Ron Rivera met this morning - apparently in Richardson's gated community home outside Charlotte.

And, apparently it went well.  Panthers PR spokesperson Charlie Dayton has stated Rivera will stay.  It's a safe assumption that playoffs were a stated expectation.

Now, Rivera has to put together the rest of his staff.  It's doubtful in my opinion that Rivera would've been asked to sacrifice a coordinator.  The few rumors I heard about Mike Shula suggest that there's an outside chance he'll leave if he wants (i.e., they wouldn't stop him).  I would definitely hope for a good Special Teams hire - say, Dave Toub, who you could also name Assistant Head Coach.
