More misconduct issues in the Carolina Panthers’ organization are happening again. First, it was former owner Jerry Richardson who hurled racial slurs at employees along with sexual misconduct issues in 2017 and now it’s defensive backs coach Curtis Fuller over workplace misconduct and sexual harassment also, according to ESPN.
The Panthers announced today that Fuller resigned due to this issue. A source close to the team said that his conduct towards women was inappropriate.
Panthers spokesperson Steven Drummond issued a statement regarding Fuller’s resignation.
“After approaching Coach Fuller with the findings of an investigation into complaints of inappropriate conduct, we accepted his resignation,” said Drummond. “The Panthers are deeply committed to ensuring a safe, comfortable and diverse work environment where all individuals, regardless of sex, race, color, religion, gender, or sexual identity or orientation, are treated fairly and equally.”
Fuller spent two seasons as Carolina’s defensive backs coach. He also played for the team in 2004.
