It kind of does. If the city is near a coast there is a higher chance that the river, probably coming from the mountains, that needs a body of water will go to it.
So it would make sense that a city based by the coast would most likely have a river.
If you think about it very few people would have the drive to build a small town/city over a river. Next to the river on the other hand makes much more sense.
Later, when the town/city needs to expand it expands over the river as the have enough people and supplies to make bridges and things work in the town.
Hope this helps!
