What is the difference between the way Ted Cottrell and Ron Rivera run their defenses? Any differences with coverage? Like did one like to play man more or did one like to play zone more?

Just something I have been wondering for a while.

Pass Rushing - Cottrell relied more on the safety blitz while Rivera liked to blitz from the slot. Cottrell tended to rely on the front 5 more often.
Run Defense - Rivera was much more willing to bring a safety into the box to help.
Coverages - Cottrell was more of a quarters man while Rivera likes 3 deep and dropping a corner into the flat. Cottrell and Rivera play way too much zone for my taste although Rivera will definitely use more combo coverage.
