LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. - Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera is officially cancer free, as shared by his daughter on social media.

The good news comes three months after Rivera finished his cancer treatment in October.

Rivera learned he had squamous cell carcinoma in August, and while the 58 year-old missed some practice time, he was on the sideline for every game.
