According to ESPN.com, the Carolina Panthers have agreed to a 3-year extension with coach Ron Rivera to keep him with the team through the 2017 season.

The deal came less than four months after it appeared Rivera might not last through the 2013 season following a 1-3 start. Rivera, 52, secured the extension after the Panthers rallied to win eight straight and 11 of their final 12 regular-season games, winning the NFC South and earning a first-round bye with a 12-4 record.
Rivera is a finalist for the NFL Coach of the Year Award, which will be announced Saturday in New York City.
