CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- A person familiar with the situation says Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has scheduled a meeting with Ron Rivera Saturday morning to discuss the coach's future with the team.

The person spoke to The Associated Press Friday on condition of anonymity because the meeting has not been publically announced.

It's uncertain if Richardson will inform Rivera whether he will be remain Carolina's coach at the meeting or gather input and make a determination at a later date.

Rivera has two years remaining on a four-year contract.

He's 19-32 in two seasons as the Panthers coach.

Richardson hasn't spoken to the media since firing GM Marty Hurney after Carolina's 1-5 start. Rivera said that's when Richardson informed him the Panthers needed to be "trending upward" for him to keep his job.
