By Max Harper

ESPN is reporting that the Commanders have fired coach Ron Rivera, and that owner Josh Harris has hired two prominent executives – ex-Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers and ex-Minnesota Vikings GM Rick Spielman to search for a new head coach.

Myers – architect of four championships with the Warriors and a current ESPN NBA analyst – and Spielman – a 30-year NFL front office executive – will work with Harris and his limited partners Mitch Rates, Magic Johnson and David Blitzer as part of an advisory committee designed to reshape the Commanders’ front office and coaching staff, team officials told ESPN.

Myers will take a lead role in identifying and coordinating interviews with candidates for both the top football operations and head coaching jobs – with Spielman set work to closely with him, officials said.
