Carolina Panthers Owner Jerry Richardson Will Sell Team Amid Sexual Misconduct & Harassment Scandal

Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson will sell the team amid allegations of workplace misconduct and harassment.

The 81-year-old former NFL player announced on Sunday night (December 17) in a letter on the team’s website that he will put the team up for sale after the 2017 season.

“I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership. Therefore, I will put the team up for sale at the conclusion of this NFL season. We will not begin the sale process, nor will we entertain any inquiries, until the very last game is played,” he wrote.

The news comes after a Sports Illustrated report, which revealed that at least four former employees received monetary settlements due to Jerry‘s inappropriate workplace conduct, including sexual harassment against female employees and a racial slur made against an African-American Panthers scout.

The NFL is now handling the investigation into the allegations of workplace misconduct, according to ESPN.
