Carolina Panthers Owner Jerry Richardson To Sell Team Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations
After an explosive report from Sports Illustrated which detailed Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson’s inappropriate behavior towards female employees, Richardson has decided to put the team up for sale after the conclusion of this season.
“I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership,” he said in the statement. “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.”
Earlier today, Sports Illustrated released a report which portrays Richardson as someone who regularly made inappropriate comments to his female employees.
