6 Jackie Robinson West Little League National Champions Thirteen high beam African-American shining stars have come forth in a blaze of bright glory lighting up a city, galvanizing a region and uniting the whole of the North America. With their polished manners, sparkling smiles and flawless execution on the baseball diamond, they have revived America s favorite pastime with a simple motto; Let s play ball. By Tony Brooks The Jackie Robinson West (JRW) All-Star Team has been on a magical carpet ride to the national championship in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, that would cause even Cinderella to shed a tear or two. In fact, several tears of happiness have been shared by the heroics of these 11 and 12 year old boys, who have displayed so much poise and sportsmanship. They are the first little league team from Chicago to reach the Little League World Series in 31 years. The last team from Chicago to go that distance was well, Jackie Robinson West. JRW certainly had their share of wand waving, heel clicking and bibbidi-bobbidi-boo transformations along the way. Major League baseball players stepped up to the cash register, and threw down financial assistance for the JRW families to make the trip. When you consider airfare, hotel expenses, meals out, there was just no way could some of the families have made a trip like this. Then there was the little league hero comes home story, only the little guy really had no stable home to return to. JRW 12 year old Jaheim Benton had unstable living conditions for most of the summer. His family had to split up, while his parents were in search of full-time employment. When the owners of Chicago s Leak & Sons funeral home heard about the hardship, they too stepped up to the plate, and are paying a full year of apartment rent for the Bentons. The Jackie Robinson Foundation, in partnership with the Ford Motor Company and U.S. Cellular, provided a four-year scholarship to a JRW team member. The recipient of this scholarship will receive a $24,000 grant, along with mentoring services, life skills training and even internship placements during their four year college career. For the right to play in the Little League World Series (LLWS) title game, JRW, the Great Lakes Region Champions, had to defeat one last U.S. team from Las Vegas, Nevada, a team they had lost to by a score of 13-2 six days prior. JRW definitely had revenge on the mind. Before the game in our dorm, we had a talk about how we wanted to get revenge against them, said the game s relief pitcher Ed Smooth as Silk Howard. It did not take long for JRW s bats to do the talking with a three-run first inning fueled by Trey Hondras two-run homer to right field. In the second inning, Hondras hit a single that scored Cameron Bufford for a 4-3 JRW lead. JRW went on to win the U.S. championship title game over Las Vegas 7-5. On the international side of the bracket, it was Seoul, South Korea, the Asia-Pacific Champions, who defeated Japan 12-3 to meet up with JRW. The teams from South Korea have been a perennial powerhouse over the years, capturing their third championship. This team emerged as the Asia-Pacific Champion, going 5-0 in the LLWS. Their potent offense was able to average 8 runs a game. Seoul Little League jumped out to a 2-0 lead before JRW put a run on the scoreboard in the bottom of the third inning to cut the lead to 2-1 in the LLWS 7 innings format of play. Seoul added a run in the fourth, and tallied another in the fifth inning. Up until the fifth inning, only Ed Howard and D.J. Butler of JRW had one hit a piece off Seoul pitchers Jae Yeong Hwang and Hae Chan Cho. Momentum was certainly flexing its muscle and lining up with the Seoul team. Heading into the top half of the sixth inning, Seoul turned on the point faucet, and poured out the runs with 5 hits and four runs, making the score 8-1. JRW had been in come from behind situations many times before, and knew better than to break the glass and ring the panic alarm. Down six runs in the bottom of the sixth, JRW started their comeback rally with single hits by Pierce Jones and Trey Hondras. Now with two men on base, Marquis Jackson ripped a bullet line drive directly into the glove of the right fielder s diving catch. Darion Radcliff stepped up to the plate next, and wrapped a two-run single, scoring Jones and Hondras, making it an 8-3 nail biting ballgame. Next up was Joshua Houston, who singled, and Radcliff scored on a passed ball, now 8-4 with hope shining bright and only one out. However, the cloud of adversity rolled in to cast a dark shadow on JRW s title hopes with a strikeout and a fielder s choice for outs two and three. Seoul Little League was the 2014 victor, 8-4 in their contention for the Little League World Series Title over Jackie Robinson West. Even with the loss to Seoul, South Korea, the fact still remains that the Jackie Robinson West players were the best little league team in the United States. Life on the little league playing field was ramped up to its highest level, but off the playing field, the boys from all over the world relaxed and simply hung out. The JRW team stayed in a dorm facility at the ball park next door to the team from Australia, who came by, ate pizza in their room, and became Instagram friends. The Canadians lived down stairs. When the boys competed recreationally, it was usually on the ping-pong table and the South Koreans ruled there as well. I asked JRW s Ed Howard if the South Koreans spoke English, he said no, but all involved in the score keeping quickly learned how to communicate with hand signals and acting out what was necessary to say. That truly is what used to be called a Kodak moment. At times, as parents were saying their goodbyes after a game and heading back to their hotels, teams would gravitate toward each other and then hangout, such was the case with Chicago and Philadelphia with their ace superstar pitcher Mo ne Davis (BSTM September cover story), who was eliminated from the series by JRW. The Jackie Robinson West All Star Little League team had a welcome home parade in the city of Chicago, fitting for a US ambassador that had just been promoted to head of state. The weather forecasters computers indicated there would be rain on the parade, but it never came. Instead, the windows of heaven 6 BSTM November 2014

The rolling caravan of trolleys and a Double Decker bus started on Chicago s far South Side, and proceeded north with a stop at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox and surrounding community tipped their hat to the Jackie Robinson West team with a fireworks tribute and over two thousand screaming, cheering fans along the sidewalks. The White Sox organization presented them with their 2005 Major League Baseball World Series trophy, as they came off the buses for photographs. After the U.S. Cellular Field stop, the caravan continued north to downtown s Michigan Avenue and Millennium Park for a rally. The Illinois State and national champion little leaguers were riding high atop a Double Decker open air bus in their hometown, accompanied by a lead escort of Chicago horse mounted police riding six abreast with an out front captain. To the right, the motorcade was flanked by a steady stream of motorcycle riding police officers, while flashing blue lights atop SUV cop cars brought up the rear. The young men looked like rock stars that were accustomed to fanfare and other celebratory noise at maximum decibel levels. City of Chicago officials estimated ten-thousand cheerleader, banner waving fans were in attendance. On hand to help celebrate were the governor, the mayor, the county board president, the state s attorney general and other local politicians. Representatives of the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox were there, and I even saw Operation Push leader Jesse Jackson in the mix. These national champions have been recognized, saluted and honored at different venues around the country. At Chicago s famed Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs, JRW took to the field on their victory tour wearing Cubs jerseys, while the Chicago Cubs in pregame activities returned the favor wearing top half JRW jerseys. JRW head coach Darold Butler threw out the game s first pitch. The Cubs players told JWR that on the day of their LLWS championship game, the Cubs were in a rain delay, so they went into the clubhouse to watch their game. Head coach Darold Butler and his two assistant coaches, Jerry Houston and Jason Little, aided by the support of the parents, grandparents and other relatives have done a fantastic job in keeping the players grounded and focused. These young men - Jaheim Benton, Cameron Bufford, DJ Butler, Brandon Green, Trey Hondras, Josh Houston, Ed Howard, Marquis Jackson, Pierce Jones, Eddie King, Prentiss Luster, Lawrence Noble and Darion Radcliff were indeed international ambassadors from the city of Chicago. The secret of their success was revealed to me by straight A in the classroom student Ed Howard who said, Just go out and have fun. I was just happy to be there.

12 The 41st Chess Olympiad China Wins Open Section, Russia Claims Women s Section The 41st Chess Olympiad, organized by the Federation Internationale des Échecs (FIDE) and comprising an open and women s tournament, as well as several events designed to promote the game of chess, took place in Tromsø, Norway, from August 1-14, The organizer was Chess Olympiad Tromsø 2014 AS on behalf of FIDE. Total number of 1,570 players participated at the Olympiad, with 881 in the open and 689 in the women s section. The number of participating teams was 177 from 172 countries in the open section and 136 from 131 countries in the women s section. The main competitive events were held at Mackhallen. The Chief Arbiter of the event was Greece s International Arbiter Panagiotis Nikolopoulos. The reigning World Champion, Norwegian Grandmaster Magnus Carlsen, was one of the eight official ambassadors. He also played on board one for the Norwegian team. China won the open section of the tournament for the first time, while Russia claimed victory in the women s section for the third consecutive time, as well as third time overall. Chinese Yu Yangyi, playing on board three, and Georgian Nana Dzagnidze, playing on board one, were the most successful players in the open and women s section, respectively. The event was also the last competitive tournament for Judit Polgár, the strongest female chess player in history, who announced her retirement from competitive chess after the end of the Olympiad. Playing as a reserve player for Hungary in the open section, she won a Silver Medal with her team and recorded four wins, one loss and one draw for a total score 4½/6. There were two cities bidding to host the event: Albena in Bulgaria and Tromsø. The bidding procedure, which was held in 2010 in Khanty-Mansiysk, lasted several days. In the end, the Norwegians won by a vote. In May 2014, it was announced that the budget for the Olympiad would cost 15 million NOK. However, the Norwegians initially did not know that they also had to organize the Chess World Cup 2013, and therefore they did not take into account the cost for this event in the amount of 2 million. The organizers requested additional funding for the Olympiad apart from the 75 million NOK that were already secured, but the Norwegian government did not approve it. Then, they sought sponsorships to cover the unanticipated expenses, and managed to attract private sponsors. In June 2014, the Norwegian parliament approved an additional 12 million NOK for staging the event, whereupon the organizers confirmed that the Chess Olympiad would take place in Tromsø. The Administrative Director of Chess Olympiad Tromsø 2014 AS was Børge Robertsen. Chairman of the board was Henrik Andenæs, but later he was replaced by Herman Kristoffersen. There were eight ambassadors of the Olympiad: the reigning World Champion Magnus Carlsen; former World Champion Anatoly Karpov; former Women s World Champions Susan Polgar and Alexandra Kosteniuk; Women Grandmaster Melanie Ohme; the historian, crime author, chess player and organizer, and politician Hans Olav Lahlum; former footballer Sigurd Rushfeldt; and the adventurer and journalist Lars Monsen. The playing venue was Mackhallen, which is situated in downtown Tromsø. Mackhallen is the former site of the world s most northerly brewery, Mack Brewery, dating back to The tournament was played in a Swiss system format. The time control for every single game was 90 minutes per 40 moves, with the addition of 30 seconds per move and 30 minutes after the 40th move. It is allowed once again for a player to offer a draw at any time during the game. A total of 11 rounds were played, in which every team played with four of their players against another team. Every team was allowed to nominate one reserve player. Teams were ranked according to the match points won in every round. In case of the same number of match points by two or more teams, the tie-breaker was decided by applying: 1. The Sonneborn-Berger system; 2. Total game points scored; 3. Sum of the match points of the opponents, excluding the lowest one. 12 BSTM November 2014

13 The opening ceremony of the Chess Olympiad was held on August 1 st, and the closing ceremony was held on August 14th. The closing ceremony started with a minute of silence after the deaths of the Seychelles player Kurt Meier from a heart attack and Alisher Anarkulov from the Uzbekistan chess federation. Tournament rounds started on August 2nd, and ended with the final round on August 14th. There were two rest days at the tournament, the first one on August 7th, after the fifth round and the second one on August 13th, before the final round. The open section of the tournament was contested by a record number of 177 teams representing 172 nations. Norway, as host nation, fielded three teams, while the International Braille Chess Association (IBCA), the International Physically Disabled Chess Association (IPCA) and the International Committee of Silent Chess (ICSC) each provided one team. Players who participated at the Olympiad included the reigning World Champion and highest rated player in the world Magnus Carlsen, nine of the top ten players from the FIDE rating list published in July 2014, and four former World Champions. Former World Champion and challenger in the World Chess Championship 2014, Vishwanathan Anand, was the only player from the top ten who missed the Olympiad. The highest rated female chess player, Judith Polgar, represented Hungary in the open section. However, not all of the teams submitted their strongest line-ups for the Olympiad. China, who was expected to be one of the strongest teams in the tournament, was represented by only two players rated above Russia was the strongest team in the open section with average rating of 2777 points, followed by Ukraine with 2722 and France, led by Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, with 2718 rating points.

China won their first Gold in the open event, and remained the only unbeaten team in the tournament. They scored eight wins and three draws for a total of 19 points, finishing two points clear of the opposition. Second place was shared by four teams with 17 points each: Hungary, India, Russia and Azerbaijan. Hungary won the tie-break for second place to claim the Silver Medal, and India, ranked third, won the Bronze Medal.

15 The Negro Leagues Up Close A Few West Coast Thoughts Lately I ve come to the realization that the Negro Leagues and the Blackball scene on the West Coast or, for that matter, pretty much the entire country west of Kansas City has in many ways been ignored by history and historians. Well, not so much ignored, per se But By Ryan Whirty the West Coast Negro Leagues have been sorely underappreciated and poorly researched. Aside from fairly thorough studies of the California Winter League much deservedly so, given that it was the only integrated professional circuit at the time the West Coast just has not been seen as that important. In a way, I cannot really blame researchers for this dereliction. The west coast never had any big time Blackball clubs, and when something like that was tried, i.e., 1946 s West Coast Negro Baseball League (WCNBL), it failed miserably. So it is understandable that historians might have come to view the West as an afterthought. But on the other hand, the same could be said about organized baseball on the West Coast before the arrival of the Dodgers, Giants, A s, etc. Until those MLB teams moved, the West Coast only had minor-league and barnstorming action. However, those subjects organized minor-league ball, for example have been pretty well studied. Everyone knows, for example, that Joe DiMaggio launched his pro career with the San Francisco Seals, and the history of the Pacific Coast League seems to have been researched quite extensively as time has gone on. So, then, why has Black baseball that was occurring on the West Coast been shunted aside? Why, for example, is there currently a squabble between some historians of West Coast Blackball and House of David (HoD) officials over whether the famed bearded barnstorming aggregation this is the original, authentic, HoD team, although various copies of the squad did also tour the left coast played African-American teams when it swept its way west? Many people living today have personal, often familial, connections to Black baseball on the West Coast, spurring them to find out as much as they can about, say, the Berkeley Colored League or even the short-lived WCNBL. It s just too bad that such studies of Blackball in the West are being conducted by amateur historians, who are pursuing these passions partially out of personal connections and partially out of sheer curiosity. It s also too bad when these amateur historians might be brushed aside with the argument that they have a personal ax to grind or are obsessed with their subjects out of a subjective bias due to their connections. But, I would argue that such are the reasons West Coast Blackball needs to be explored because so many people living today have connections to those eras, teams and leagues, and they deserve to know about their ancestors and their ancestors roles in the history of the great American pastime. Their personal stakes in the matter do not reduce the validity of their research. In fact, they enhance it. Are the official House of David museum and its connected archival repositories ignoring Black-and-White, indisputable proof that their beloved famous team did in fact play Black teams in the West? Or, are the people who are persistently approaching the HoD for information just being pesky obsessives with an aforesaid personal ax to grind? Perhaps that is a matter of opinion, so I do not want to weigh-in on one side or the other. But, what I will discuss is why I do what I do. I tend to be attracted to topics that have been overlooked or forgotten or just unknown to modern-day Negro Leagues researchers stuff like the Berkeley International League, Blackball in Billings, Montana, and the Van Dyke Colored House of David (one of the admitted knock-offs of the original HoD, but one that is nonetheless fascinating for the fact that it was an ambitious, African-American version based in, of all places, Sioux City, Iowa). I think what we are seeing, perhaps, is just the natural progression of historical research about the Negro Leagues. Such research efforts were pretty much non-existent until Robert Peterson s Only the Ball Was White, and ever since that seminal tone, historians have furiously been playing catch-up when it comes to uncovering the story of pre-integration African-American baseball. And where is a natural place to start with that? The big time teams, leagues and players the Josh Gibsons and Rube Fosters and Judy Johnsons, the K.C. Monarchs and Newark Eagles and Homestead Grays, the Negro National and American leagues, the East-West All-Star Classic. You start from the top and gradually work your way down to the more detailed and obscure activity like what was happening on the West Coast, or, for that matter, much of the South, like my current stomping grounds in Louisiana. Perhaps what weare witnessing with West Coast Blackball research is just the gradual, sometimes glacial progression of the research process. Now that so much has been discovered, documented and detailed about the big-time Negro Leagues activity, time will eventually see the progression of research interest west (and south). At least I hope that is the case. For now, I am proud of my research into African-American baseball in the Pelican State, the locale of a lively and completely overlooked Blackball scene. The same goes for the Negro Leagues of the West Coast. Someone has to start to process, has to initiate what must happening through the evolution process within research. It might as well be we few, hardy souls who are fascinated by what remains overlooked. We like being trailblazers, and we hope we are doing a service to the research process. So, I guess I issue a call to all Negro Leagues and African- American baseball historians, both professional and amateur, to join us in our quest. We would welcome the help, because the more people we have combing through databases and box scores, the better. It has to be a group effort, and if there s one thing the Negro Leagues community has always proudly been is a close-knit, group effort to right the countless injustices that occurred in this country. Come join us. I guarantee you won t be disappointed. BSTM November

16 Michael Mike Carey From Senior NFL Referee to TV Analyst Michael Mike Carey is a retired football official in the National Football League (NFL). His uniform number was 94. Prior to his officiating career, he played college football as a running back for Santa Clara University. retired NFL official. He worked as a back judge from the 2010 NFL season until Before that, Don was a field judge from 1995 to 1997, a back judge from 1998 to 2008 and a referee in On June 24, 2014, Carey resigned from the NFL, and joined CBS Sports as an analyst for its Thursday night and Sunday broadcasts. He provides rules analysis, interpretation and rules explanations from the game site, as well as the NFL Network s studios in Culver City, California on Thursdays and from The NFL Today set in New York on Sunday. Carey was a respected official in the NFL for his thorough pre-game preparation, professional demeanor and fair play. In a poll conducted by ESPN in 2008, he tied with referee Ed Hochuli for most best referee votes among NFL head coaches. He had also ejected the most players in the league among current referees, as of 2002, including incidents involving Sean Taylor and Terrell Suggs. In his nineteenth year as referee with the 2013 NFL season, Carey s officiating crew consisted of umpire Chad Brown, head linesman Mark Baltz, line judge Tim Podraza, field judge Mike Weir, side judge Doug Rosenbaum and back judge Kirk Dornan. Carey was designated as referee of Super Bowl XLII between the New England Patriots and New York Giants, becoming the first African-American referee to receive the prestigious assignment. He officiated the same two teams when they played each other during the final week of the 2007 NFL season. At the time of his retirement, Carey was one of the two senior referees in the NFL, along with Walt Coleman. He was promoted in 1995, when the league added the Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars and thus needed an extra officiating crew to handle up to 15 games per weekend, instead of 14, which had been the case between 1976 and He attended and later graduated from Santa Clara University (SCU) in 1971, with a Bachelor s Degree in Biology. While at SCU, he played running back for four years until an ankle injury ended his playing career. The injury continues to impact Carey today as it limits his running ability. He only allows himself to run on days he is scheduled to officiate games. Carey currently resides in San Diego, California, along with his wife, Wendy. Wendy, also a graduate of SCU, is the Chief Financial Officer of Seirus Innovation. The couple have two daughters, Drisana and Danica. His older brother, Don Carey, is also a In 1979, Mike and Wendy Carey founded Seirus Innovation, a privately held company that manufactures ski and snowboarding gloves, face protection and other cold-weather accessories. In September 2007, Carey was named Chairman of the Board for SnowSports Industries America (SIA). As chair, his goal is to get the suppliers, retailers, reps, media and resorts to come together as one community and work together, to create synergy to help strengthen the snow sports industry as a whole. Carey is an inventor, who owns or shares eight ski apparel patents, including Cat Tracks, a device which he created at age 30 to slip over the sole of a ski boot to provide increased traction when walking. He began officiating football in 1972, working Pop Warner football games in the San Diego, California, area after a suggestion by a friend. Progressing to the college level in 1985, he joined the Western Athletic Conference (WAC). In the WAC, he officiated three bowl games. Mike Carey 16 BSTM November 2014 Carey was hired by the NFL in 1990, as a side judge, before being promoted to referee for the start of the 1995 NFL season. He became the second African-American referee in NFL history after Johnny Grier in In addition to being selected as referee in Super Bowl XLII, he served as an alternate for Super Bowl XXXVI. In addition to the Super Bowl, he has officiated two conference championship games, four divisional playoffs and eight wild card games throughout his career as of the conclusion of the NFL playoffs. Carey has worked memorable games throughout his career, most notably during the 2005 NFL season. On October 3, 2005, Mike and Don Carey became the first brothers to officiate an NFL game together when they were assigned on the same officiating crew for the game between the Carolina Panthers and Green Bay Packers. The following week of the 2005 regular season on October 9, 2005, Carey was involved in a game between the Baltimore Ravens and Detroit Lions, which featured a pair of ejections and 21 penalties for the Ravens. In the third quarter, with Detroit possession from Baltimore s 6 yard line, Terrell Suggs was penalized for roughing Detroit quarterback Joey Harrington

17 Mike Carey following an incomplete pass. Suggs then quickly approached Mike Carey to argue the call, and was immediately ejected from the game. Television replays were inconclusive to determine if contact with an official was made. After the game, Carey spoke to reporters and said, He bumped me with malice in his heart, and he was gone. He said a number of things to me. Two months later at the start of overtime during a game between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers in December 2005, Carey was unable to locate a coin to use for the coin toss. He had given his coin to a child, who served as the Packers honorary captain, at the game s opening kickoff. The field judge was able to supply Carey with a penny. Carey was the referee during a playoff game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins. At the conclusion of a play during this game, Redskins safety Sean Taylor spat in the face of Buccaneers running back Michael Pittman. Pittman retaliated with a slap to Taylor s helmet. Carey could be heard through a live microphone immediately ejecting Taylor from the game. Head linesman Steve Stelljes conferred with Carey over Pittman s actions, but Carey decided not to penalize Pittman. When questioned about taking no action against Pittman by Redskins players, Carey said in response to being spat upon, What would you do? Mike Pereira, the vice president of officiating, approved of Carey s handling of the incident saying that offsetting personal fouls would not have been appropriate. Pereira added, If anybody didn t eject somebody for spitting in somebody s face, I d be disappointed. Nearly two years later, Carey was named referee of Super Bowl XLII. On working the NFL s championship game, Carey said it was a personal honor and understood the historical significance of being the first African-American referee. On the significance of the event, he said it was a great sign of the evolution of our society that all barriers are eroding. During the fourth quarter, Carey s judgment was a factor in one of the important plays of the game. On third down, with just over a minute left in regulation, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning received the snap in a shotgun formation, and looked to pass the ball. New England Patriots defenders Richard Seymour, Jarvis Green, and Adalius Thomas grabbed and attempted to tackle Manning. Manning escaped the defenders, and threw a 32-yard pass to wide receiver David Tyree. Under NFL rules, officials are required to stop play when a player is in the grasp and control of the defense. Carey determined that grasp and control was never achieved since Manning s forward momentum did not stop. Speaking about the play, Carey said, I anticipated a sack. I didn t assume that was going to happen, but rarely do you see a quarterback escape when he s got that much weight on his back and being dragged by two or three guys who had a hold of him. I could see [Manning s] head was just straight ahead. He was trying to break free with desperation. Then all of a sudden he spun out, and then he started to come right back at me. BSTM November

20 Ron Rivera Head Coach of the NFL s Carolina Panthers Ronald Eugene Rivera, a football coach and former player, is currently the head coach of the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League (NFL), where he won the 2013 Associated Press (AP) NFL Coach of the Year. Rivera played college football for the University of California, and was recognized as an All- American linebacker. He was selected in the second round of the 1984 NFL Draft. He played professionally for the 1985 Chicago Bears, who won Super Bowl XX. As a coach, Rivera was the defensive coordinator for the 2006 Chicago Bears, who won the National Football Conference championship and competed in Super Bowl XLI. Rivera was born January 7, 1962, in Fort Ord, California. His father was a Puerto Rican commissioned officer in the United States Army stationed in California. There he met his future wife, Rivera s mother, who is of Mexican heritage. As a result of his father s military service, Rivera had to travel, and was educated on military bases in Germany, Panama, Washington, D.C., and Maryland. Finally his family moved to Monterey, California. There, he attended Seaside High School, where he first started playing football. He was granted a college scholarship, and played for the Golden Bears at the University of California, Berkeley. He was a consensus All-American linebacker, leading the team in tackles for his last three years as a player. He once held his school s alltime sack and career tackles records. Rivera still holds the Cal record for most tackles for loss in a season, which he set in He was the 1983 Lombardi Award Winner as the nation s top college football lineman, and the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the 1984 East-West Shrine Game. During the 1985 season, Rivera played in Super Bowl XX, where the Bears beat the New England Patriots, He thus became the first Puerto Rican to play on a Super Bowl championship team. He became the starter in 1988, serving for three seasons. Rivera played for the Bears for a total of nine seasons ( ). In 1993, Rivera went to work for WGN-TV and SportsChannel Chicago as a TV analyst covering the Bears and college football. In 1996, he became a defense quality control coach for the Bears. In 1999, he was named linebackers coach for the Philadelphia Eagles. During his tenure with the Eagles, they advanced to the National Football Conference (NFC) Championship for three consecutive seasons. He is credited with developing linebacker Jeremiah Trotter into a two-time Pro Bowl performer. playoffs, losing in the second round to the Carolina Panthers The 2005 performance of the Chicago Bears earned him consideration for head coach assignments from several NFL teams. In 2006, the Bears defensive efforts failed to match the success of their 2005 season. Nevertheless, the team was still a notable presence in the league, finishing with the league s third ranked and conference s topranked points allowed category. The defense s success earned Rivera recognition among franchises looking for new head coaches. The Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers interviewed him in January He was a candidate for the vacant Dallas Cowboys head coaching position, a job that ultimately went to San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. Rivera was named as a potential candidate to replace the fired Marty Schottenheimer in San Diego, but the job was filled by Norv Turner, the brother of fellow offensive coordinator Ron Turner, Rivera s offensive counterpart in Chicago. After the announcement, ESPN reported that the Bears were considering letting Rivera go. This came after several other teams interviewed him, and the negotiations between his representatives and the Bears were making little progress. On February 19, 2007, it was announced that Ron Rivera s contract with the Bears would not be renewed. Ron Rivera The San Diego Chargers hired Rivera as the team s inside linebackers coach after he left the Bears. On October 28, 2008, Rivera was promoted to defensive coordinator with the Chargers after the team released former defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell. Rivera had used the 4-3 defense for most of his coaching career, but adopted a 3-4 scheme with the Chargers. On January 11, 2011, Rivera was named the fourth head coach of the Carolina Panthers. He is the fourth Latino to be an NFL head coach, the first being New Orleans Saints coach Tom Fears, former Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks coach Tom Flores the second and former New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts coach Jim E. Mora. During his first year as head coach, his Panthers went 6-10, and finished third in the division. In 2012, the Panthers finished 7-9 and finished second in the division. In his third year as head coach, he again started 1-3 before turning his philosophy around, and the Panthers finished the season 11-1 en route to a division title, second seed in the playoffs and a first round bye in the playoffs. He was honored as the 2013 AP NFL Coach of the Year on February 1, On January 23, 2004, Rivera was named the Chicago Bears Defensive Coordinator. In 2005, the Chicago Bears defense was rated second-best in the NFL. The Bears qualified for the NFC Over the first 34 games of his coaching career, he was known for exceptionally conservative decision making, which led to a 2-14 record in games decided by less than a touchdown.
