The Washington Football Team has yet another reason to celebrate.

Less than 24 hours after the Burgundy and Gold knocked out archrival Dallas by 22 points, their head coach finished his treatment for squamous cell cancer.

On Monday, Ron Rivera walked out of Inova Schar Cancer Institute in Fairfax, Virginia, after his final round of chemotherapy as doctors, nurses and staffers cheered and threw confetti.

Rivera then followed tradition and rang a bell to mark the special moment.

Rivera’s cancer had been diagnosed back in August, and was caught early.
