BLOG: 'Riverboat Ron' shows acting skills

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera, also known as "Riverboat Ron" for taking gambles on crucial late game decisions, is taking another gamble with his acting skills in six new funny ads promoting insurance.

He's a member of USAA which is the official military appreciation sponsor of the NFL. It was that insurance company that helped him through a fire at his home at Quail Hollow Club.

According to Rivera, the process was seamless.

If he were to give up the coaching one day, then acting might be his next line or work.
