SHARE WATCH: Ron Rivera speaks following Super Bowl loss

Ron Rivera waited nine years to get back to the Super Bowl, now the Panthers coach is hoping his next wait isn’t quite as long.

Shortly after suffering a 24-10 loss to Denver in Super Bowl 50, Rivera spoke about getting back to the big game in a postgame interview:

Rivera – a linebacker on the 1985 Bears championship team – also served as Chicago’s defensive coordinator during the 2006 season, the last time the Bears reached the Super Bowl.

Both losses came against Peyton Manning.
