Just two days after the Panthers announced he was under investigation for workplace misconduct (on the same day a Sports Illustrated report that described a pattern of sexual harassment and casual racism) Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announced that he will look to sell his team this offseason. Richardson, age 81, is the only principal owner the Panthers have ever had since their creation in 1993. In his announcement, Richardson makes no mention of the investigation, only saying “I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership. While I will no longer be the team owner, I will always be the Panthers Number One Fan,” Richardson writes.
