Riverboat Ron will be in Carolina for a while longer.

The Carolina Panthers announced head coach Ron Rivera has signed a contract extension through the 2017 season. Rivera had one year remaining on his original four-year deal.

“I have been very clear about how much I have enjoyed living in Charlotte and working for this organization,” Rivera said in a statement. “I very much appreciate the support and confidence (Panthers owner Jerry) Richardson and (General Manager) Dave Gettleman have shown in me and our staff.”

With Rivera as coach, the Panthers improved their record in each of his first three seasons, including a 12-4 mark, the NFC South title and the second seed in the 2013 playoffs.

“The improvement of our team has been reflected in the progress of the record over the last three seasons under Ron and we look forward to building upon that foundation,” Richardson said in a statement.

Rivera was named NFL Coach of the Year by the Professional Football Writers of America in 2013 and is a candidate for the AP Coach of the Year.

“The team has shown improvement under Ron each year and he is deserving of the recognition that he has received for the 2013 season,” Gettleman said. “We are pleased and excited with the continuity this extension brings.”

Said Rivera: “Any success we have enjoyed is the result of a team effort by players, coaches, scouts and the entire organization, and our ultimate goal remains winning the Super Bowl.”
