Ron Rivera is one of the most beloved — respected — coaches in the NFL.

At a recent practice, the head coach of the Washington Football Team was mic’d up, and you can see multiple examples of why Rivera is so beloved and respected.

At the beginning of the clip, Rivera is seen running onto the field toward running back J.D. McKissic. Rivera puts his hands on McKissic and says,” let’s practice, a little excitement.”

This led to a playful back and forth between McKissic and Rivera.

The featured player in the segment is young fourth-string quarterback Steven Montez. After one throw, Rivera tells Montez to stop aiming the football, to “just throw it.” The coach tells Montez he has a good arm to use it.

After encouraging Montez on his next attempt, Rivera pulls him to the side and praises him.

Finally, we see Rivera interact with defensive end Chase Young. Rivera sees Young coming off the field and tells him, “nice series, you set things up when you practice like that.”

Young responded, “yes, sir.”

It’s a good, albeit brief look, into a Rivera practice.
