When Washington head coach Ron Rivera ended his daily presser after Sunday’s practice, local reporters ended it like they normally do, thanking the head coach for his time.
“Thank you, Ron,” reporters said.
On a normal day, that would be the end. Not on Sunday.
Rivera responded: “Oh, it’s coach,” he said smiling. Rivera then walked off with a wink and said, “just kidding.”
Ron Rivera ended his presser and some reporters said, “Thank you, Ron.”
He turned around with a wide smile and said: “Oh, it’s coach.” Then he winked and walked off. “Just kidding,” he said.

Rivera was having some fun at the expense of New York Giants offensive coordinator — and former Dallas head coach — Jason Garrett, who, last week, had the following exchange with reporters.
Jason Garrett would like to be called “Coach.”

The video received more press than it likely should have. Garrett was departing to a quiet room of reporters and said, “Yeah, we say good to see you, Coach.”
He never actually directly told reporters to call him coach. Anyhow, it received plenty of attention and, on Sunday, Rivera had a little fun with it.
